We are thrilled to yet again work with Anvil for gathering the tshirts needed to print the 40th anniversary tees for Earth Day Columbus! Anvil is the 3rd largest purchaser of organic American cotton and has the 6th largest sustainable apparel program! If you know about our committment to sustainability here at American Canvas you know that we are HUGE supporters of organic in transition purchasing. What the heck is that???? Well, it is how companies like Anvil Knitwear support farmers in the transitioning of their fields to organic.
A farmer can not be "certified organic" until their crops have grown chem free for 3-5 years. so in the prossess companies show their important financial support of these farmers by purchasing the "in transition" crops.
Check out Anvils new 450 tee made from recycled soda bottles and ringspun in transition cotton! (pictured above)
