The timing of Earth Day is perfect. It coincides with the start of baseball season, and, as a licensee of Major League Baseball®, the celebration of Earth Day provides the perfect platform to discuss how sports, eco-innovation and domestic reinvestment can create jobs and economic hope.
Sports have the unique ability to produce camaraderie and unify people around a common goal. A team T-shirt can create a conversation among fans, providing a medium for greater solidarity. At SustainU, we see how powerful team clothing can be and aim to create products that represent ideas and passions that benefit all fans.
We make more sustainable sports apparel for MLB® fans because we had a vision about how this type of business could provide greater opportunities to communities that resemble our own. From our headquarters in West Virginia, we work passionately every day to showcase how American manufacturing and eco-innovation is the perfect canvas for your favorite MLB® team.
We work with other small businesses in the United States, helping to bolster job retention and growth throughout our supply chain. Using a domestically centered, smaller transportation footprint saves fuel and carbon emissions, all while getting you a better product in a faster timeframe. We only utilize materials that are certified as 100% recycled content to make our products. This material saves fresh water that is desperately needed in so many farming regions, as well as fuel that is used to make petro-based materials (polyester), and helps divert waste from overcrowding our landfills.
The mode of operation of SustainU is two-fold, to create opportunities for areas that need economic resurgence, and to preserve vital natural resources. This unique combination in sports apparel creates amazing-feeling fan gear that is well suited for your team’s logo.
We are dedicated to making your next, new favorite shirt from 100% recycled, USA-made materials. We are confident you will see how our passion for more sustainable apparel creates something that you can be proud to wear.
