Featured Item: Soybean Cotton Jersey Polo

Did you know that it takes 300 gallons of water to grow enough cotton to make one cotton t-shirt?  Or that 4 million tons of textile waste or discarded every day - the average American alone throwing away approximately 68 pounds alone? These days there are surprisingly numerous - and fashionable - apparel options available to consumers wishing to make more environmentally conscious choices. Bags, shorts, blankets, jackets and more are available in a variety of fabrics which are designed to reduce your footprint.  We have access to organic cotton, recycled polyester, bamboo-based fabrics - even apparel and accessories made from recycled plastic bottles.

We love these Men's and Ladies' polos.  Not only are the comfortable and sharp looking, but they are made of a combination of cotton, spandex and azlon - a soybean-based protein used to make fabric.  Another upside?  Azlon has natural wicking properties, so you will stay cooler and drier in these shirts than your average cotton or poly polo.  To order these, or other earth-friendly apparel, contact us today.
