Where our shirts are made matters to us and it should matter to you too. The shirt manufacturers we use are a green company through and through. They are 100% No Sweatshops + Eco- Friendly Production
WATER & ENERGY REDUCTION
By using newer, more efficient dye machines, they use 7x less water than the average for clothing manufacturers, saving 24 million gallons a week. Yes, you heard that right... 24 million gallons of water a week. Any water they do use goes through a filtration system that allows it to be recycled. They take every opportunity to reduce their co2 emissions. At their headquarters they use solar energy to power their sewing and cutting facilities. For lighting they use motion-sensor LED lighting and skylights throughout each building.
VIRTUALLY ZERO WASTE
They are a green company through and through. Their manufacturing facilities and LA Headquarters produce almost no landfill because they recycle pretty much everything that can't be turned into a tee. They've optimized their cutting to reduce plastic use, and excess fabric is recycled into a number of other items. Letting nothing go to waste!
CREATING AMERICAN JOBS
They have a USA- strong approach to production. This means that almost their entire manufacturing process takes place in America. They provide well over 1,000 jobs right here in Los Angeles. They design the tees here, dye them here, cut them here. The garments are then assembled in the U.S. OR Central America. Our children tees are assembled in Central America. All of their production is 100% sweatshop- free and Platinum W.R.A.P Certified.
NO SWEATSHOPS/PLATINUM WRAP CERTIFICATION
