THINKING + ACTING SUSTAINABLY
As people and a company, we’re inspired by, drawn to, and forever awed by our connection to the outdoors – sun, grass, sand, trees, mountains, birds, and so much more. So we strive to create apparel, build a business and a community in a way that protects the world we love. For us, this is an ongoing journey and, like all things, a process of trial and error, but ultimately a commitment to understand our impact on our environment and the drive to keep going.
The majority of our apparel is manufactured in Colombia, South America, which is #1 in sustainable development and ethics practices in Latin America, generating most of their electricity from non-fossil fuel sources, principally hydro- and geothermal electricity.
Our 26,000 square-foot headquarters in Hanahan, South Carolina is a LEED-certified facility, home to our corporate offices, production, warehouse, and client showroom.
Our 30,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Union County houses our custom cut-and-sew services.
REPREVE® - EARTH FRIENDLY FIBER
Our eco line of solar long sleeve shirts are made with REPREVE® yarn by Unifi. These high-quality fibers are made from 100% recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles and pre-consumer waste.
In contrast to virgin fiber, REPREVE helps to offset the use of petroleum, emitting fewer greenhouse gases and conserving water and energy in the process. Every shirt made from REPREVE contains the equivalent of 16 plastic water bottles!
