Because our environment is important.

For a better world.

If you regularly purchase from our shop, you know that we have a lot of cool merch on offer. No matter whether you prefer to rock out at live shows, binge-watch films and series or play the hottest games, we've got your latest fix right here.

We at EMP are fans too first and foremost, which is why we live to provide you with the coolest and best quality merch across our full range. But did you know that we also offer products that give something back too?

We've been building up our range of products that support a better, fairer and more sustainable world for a while. One of our main efforts has been directed at integrating organic-certified products into our range. Protecting the envrionment is no longer a fringe issue - it affects us all and we can all do something to contribute to it.

By purchasing organic-certified products, you can contribute to creating a more sustainable and fairer world. Each purchase of organic products is a sign to us that we're on the right track and that we should continue to expand on this product range.

So that you can more easily recognise our organic products in future, we'll be clearly marking them in our online shop. You can find an overview of the certifications we use on this page.

THE HARDCORE HELP FOUNDATION is committed to a humanitarian approach and, as the name of the organisation suggests, it could hardly be more closely interwoven with the ideals and values of the hardcore and punk rock scene. It all started in 2011 with the devastating Fukushima tsunami and the idea of collecting donations through a festival and the sale of used and new merch. After many festivals and concerts, we can say that many people in need at home and abroad have been helped with essential goods.

Organic Cotton certification guarantees the ecological cultivation of the fibre.
Organic cotton is produced and harvested according to the guidelines of organic
farming.
The use ofgenetically modified seeds is prohibited.
In contrast to conventional cotton cultivation, the use of chemical pesticides and fertilisers
is prohibited.
To maintain and improve natural soil fertility, manure and compost are used. To keep
insects away, the fields are moved with other plants to keep the pests away.
For example, sunflowers are planted around the cotton fields in West Africa.
These attract pests such as the cotton capsule beetle and thus prevent
infestation of the cotton plants. In addition, the farmers practice crop
rotation. This means that cotton is grown in alternation with other crops such
as tomatoes or peppers, etc.

This also serves to care for the soil and prevents the spread of pests and diseases.
