Check your tag. You know all of those clothes that are constructed overseas? Well, there's nothing wrong with supporting people and businesses around the world (Go Earth!), rather it's the excruciating journey those garments venture on in production and then upon final completion that can be intensely harmful. Air and sea travel lend themselves to an amazing amount of waste and pollution, simply traveling from point A to point B (point A being somewhere not in America and point B being America) then back to point A (or C or D or so on). The amount of fuel consumed by giant cargo ships and airplanes results in a startlingly high carbon footprint. By producing our goods in the USA (all in eastern Pennsylvania and Maryland in fact!) we are not contributing to the pollution our garments would cause if they had to travel from overseas.
Aside from earth-friendly practices, we are adhering to human-frirendly practices as well.Meaning we have personally met with each manufacutrer (both of which are located in Eastern Pennsylvania). We have toured their facilities and have even met with and spoken to the people cutting and sewing the garments numerous times. Heck, we even got in on the action and started helping load up the delivery trucks and bundle our garments together! We know the people and know that they are treated well. And it feels SO good to be certain that the garment you’re picking up is completely and totally made with ethical practices. To NOT have the notion looming in the back of your head that maybe this garment wasn’t made with honest certainty is worth everything. All of our USA made garments are something to be proud of.
