Shirtworks, a keen supporter of environmental and Fairtrade causes, will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day by offering a 10% discount on any organic cotton garments, Fairtrade garments or recycled promotional products bought on Earth Day (22nd April).

Oxford, United Kingdom, April 21, 2010 --( Shirtworks, a leading supplier of environmentally friendly promotional products, has announced that a 10% discount will be given on any orders of organic cotton and Fairtrade garments for customisation, and recycled promotional products on 22nd April – the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. The global event, designed to increase awareness of the environment, promote the need for a sustainable lifestyle and provide a means for people to express their concern about environmental damage was founded in 1970 by U.S. Senator Nelson. Now in its fortieth year, the global event is celebrated during the spring in the northern hemisphere and the autumn in the southern hemisphere. For more information visit or call 0800 0725334.

Arron Harnden, MD of Shirtworks said "The fortieth anniversary of Earth Day is definitely something to be celebrated, and we are delighted to be able to show our support through this special offer. It's our hope that by offering a discount on the products that have a minimal environmental impact, we'll not only give the people who support Earth Day an indication of our gratitude, but also encourage our customers to try these products if they haven't already. We're certain that once they do, they'll never go back, as the quality of ethically produced and environmentally friendly promotional products has increased so much over recent years."

When asked if there was a limitation on this offer, Arron said "Whether our customers are ordering only one organic cotton T-Shirt at our shop on Cowley Road in Oxford, or making a bulk order on hundreds of recycled products for customisation, the discount will be applied, as long as the order or purchase is made on the 22nd of April. Orders can be placed in person, by phone or on our website. We want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to express their support. We've put a great deal of effort into ensuring that our business is as environmentally friendly as possible at all levels, from packaging used to send out orders to ensuring that no environmentally damaging chemicals are used in our screen printing process," Arron explained. "We worked for a year to gain Soil Association accreditation and we are still the only garment embroiderer and screen printing company in Europe to have achieved this, so celebrating Earth Day is something close to our hearts and in line with the core ethical ideals we have at Shirtworks."
