FAQ'S

Where do you source your tea towels?

As we are unable to find an Australian fabric mill, we source our fabrics from an ethical and sustainable supplier overseas.

All our cotton products are manufactured specifically for us from ethically grown 100% organic cotton in India in a GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified factory we have been working with for many years.

We also use 100% environmentally friendly inks – 100% solvent, PVC and phthalate free with approval from the Soil Association of the UK, having successfully met the requirements of GOTS for non-organic chemical inputs for use in organic textile processing.

All of our items are designed and printed in Australia.

Are we Eco-Friendly?

At Expressions we love helping schools and grass-roots community organisations by providing popular, eco-friendly, long lasting and practical fundraising products.

We provide unique mementos as an enduring alternative that won’t be thrown away.


All our products are manufactured specifically for us from ethically grown 100% organic cotton in a GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified factory we have been working with for many years. Our sustainable tea towels, bags and aprons help reduce the waste produced by plastic bags and paper towels. We use premium quality heavy weight cotton so our products will stand the test of time for many years. 


Our screen printing inks are use 100% environmentally friendly, 100% solvent, PVC and phthalate free with approval from the Soil Association, having successfully met the requirements of the Global Organic Textiles Standards for non-organic chemical inputs for use in organic textile processing.  Eco-friendly ink is also used for our colour prints in our industrial printer to give worldwide Oeki-Tex 100 certification which is globally accepted for infant and baby wear. 


We strive to ensure that our business minimises its impact on the environment:


  • From a business perspective, we use an internal paperless system, processing as much as we can electronically.
  • From a product perspective, our tea towels are eco-friendly, long-lasting, practical everyday items.
  • From a procurement perspective, we purchase from local suppliers where possible. If stock is imported, we’ve physically assessed the factories to ensure ethical practice.
  • From an environmental perspective, we actively recycle and re-use marketing materials, shipping boxes, paper and cartridges. 


We use Hero Packs to send out all our free kits. They look and feel like plastic, but they are 100% home-compostable shipping mailers. 


We also provide eco-friendly parent order bags for our clients to easily pack and distribute their precious keepsakes so they get home safely. We supply over 150,000 of these customised compost-a-pak bags annually. They are made of corn starch, Australian certified and compostable for both home and council organics programs. 


We donate monthly to the Smith Family and Surf Lifesaving and are actively involved in local environmental projects, participating in community tree planting projects and beach clean ups.
