It was printed by German company Subucoola using an M&R Sportsman EX screen print machine on an EarthPositive Unisex Classic Jersey T-Shirt (EP01) from Continental Clothing, as well as a Stella Wants fitted round neck T-shirt from Stanley/Stella. For each T-shirt the company sells, it ensures that at least five trees are planted. The company is already responsible for 760 planted trees in Zambia.
