Grant & Lesley & 3rdRockArts
PURE & SIMPLE
Welcome to 3rdRockArts
We are a couple with shared passions for science & nature, art and ecology. We created 3rdRock to celebrate these themes in a fresh, fun and sustainable way. Grant is originally from New Zealand, and Lesley shares his love of its unique landscapes and architecture. So you will see a lot of NZ influences among our eclectic and personal selections.
We create all our own designs, from our own photographs, and are constantly exploring new ways to celebrate the worlds of science and nature, and the very World we live in.
Thanks for looking, and if you'd like to be notified when new designs come online please join our mailing list.

Greensleeves: 100% Organic Tees & Totes
Our T-shirts and tote bags are made from 100% organic cotton. This means it is produced using 100% natural seeds so there is no use of pesticides or other harmful chemicals. Organic cotton is rotated from one soil to another, so the natural nutrients retain water for longer so that the land requires less irrigation and produces much healthier crops. This also allows farmers to grow food on the same land, allowing them to diversify their income. In organic cotton manufacturing, weeding is done only by hand, with no harmful substances used in the process, this causes no harm to the people who are cultivating the crop. The printers use water-based inks which contain no chemicals harmful to the environment. All our packaging is plastic-free.
HOW WE WORK
Good things come to those who wait
When we set up 3rdRock we wanted it to be as sustainable as possible, every step of the way. We chose a print-to-order business model, which eliminates excess transport and storage and all its associated economic and environmental costs. We only make our products when they are ordered. We aim to keeep our production turnaround times to 3 - 5 working days, plus whatever delivery times you have chosen for your delivery service at checkout.
