Our Purpose

Riot Healers draws upon inspiration from healthcare professionals, not just fighting the pandemic but those who are fighting for human rights, social justice, and health equity.


Through community and conversation, we hope to recognize, empower and uplift the voices that have dedicated their lives to serving others.


INTEGRITY | our designs are inspired by healthcare workers, for healthcare workers. In our home, workplace, or community, we are not afraid to use our authentic voices.

ADVOCACY | whether it's on a t-shirt, sticker, or original print, art creates conversations, and conversations spark change. We are leaders, campaigners, and advocates for our patients, human rights, and social justice. 

INCLUSION | gender, race, age, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or body size - we welcome all identities and embrace all forms of diversity. 

HUMANITY  like our work with patients, we value people over profit. Our sourcing, garments, and packaging were all handpicked with sustainability in mind. We also donate a percentage of our proceeds to organizations fighting for health equity.

Our Promise

At Riot Healers, we believe Health is a Human Right. Therefore, we recognize how environmental practices affect the health of individuals, communities, and populations at large.

Fast fashion is not only detrimental to the environment. It results in poor health outcomes and exploits the safety of millions of workers.

With sustainability and transparency at the forefront of our business practices, we guarantee:

  • All garments are ethically produced in the US from 100% sweatshop-free, fair trade, and WRAP certified companies including Royal Apparel and Bella+Canvas.
  • We work closely with our local, Chicago-based screen printers to print on demand to the best of our abilities to minimize waste. 
  • Most of our garments are 100% certified organic cotton which produces less greenhouse gases, and is free from pesticides or insecticides - making it a safer material for workers and the planet.
  • Shirts not made from 100% organic cotton are either from an eco-blend of recycled polyester or 100% cotton. Each individual item is specified on our website.
  • Our packaging is made from 100% plastic-free, biodegradable, recycled material.
  • To counteract the environmental impact of shipping, Riot Healers works with Offset to neutralize carbon emissions. Every month, our total emissions from shipped orders are calculated, and we pay an offset that goes towards forest protection initiatives. We are happy to share our monthly reports with you!

Thank you for understanding these values may be reflected in our prices and wait time for shipments. If you have any questions, feedback, or tips on how we can make our business practices more inclusive or eco-friendly, please reach out to info@riothealers.com.
