MLB® T-Shirts Made for Earth Day

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.

SustainU & Bridge Day Mark 7th Series of Green Initiative T-Shirts

Since October 2009, we’ve been the proud producers of official Bridge Day West Virginia T-shirts!

One year later marked the first year that all Bridge Day official clothing was American made out of 100% recycled material. The event, which garnered over 100,000 attendants, was a giant success and all of the official T-shirts were completely sold out! Thanks to this partnership between us, Bridge Day was now more of a greener festival than it ever was before.

Fast forward years later to October 2016 – our 8th consecutive year collaborating with Bridge Day and the 7th year making the “Green Series Collectors Graphic”…and we’re more excited than ever to be a part of it!

“It is always an honor for SustainU to provide Bridge Day with apparel made with American labor and recycled technology,” said SustainU CEO, Chris Yura. “West Virginia has tremendous natural resources and amazing people. Bridge Day is a great way to show off our incredible home state.”

Resources in West Virginia are some of our state’s greatest assets. By choosing our recycled apparel for official Bridge Day clothing, we’re working together to help fight and protect the conservation of these resources.

In 1977, when the famous New River Gorge Bridge was finished, it was at the time the longest steel single-span arch bridge and the highest vehicular bridge in the world. The bridge itself is a celebration of American hard work and craft, as well as the West Virginia spirit. The combination of this spirit along with the protection of our resources is what helps make this collaboration be a successful, sustainable and environmentally friendly event.

If you’re attending the event and would like to purchase official Bridge Day clothing, be on the lookout for our tents so you can stop by and meet us before making your purchase!
