BELLA+CANVAS® set out to reduce their footprint in two ways, through their eco-friendly manufacturing process. First, by using as little water as possible. Their dye machines use 7x less water than the industry average, saving 24 million gallons of water per week.

Secondly, the small amounts of wastewater that are generated go to a state-of-the-art water reclamation plant in LA. The California Environmental Protection Agency, or ‘EPA’, is the strictest in the world. Due to the EPA’s high level of oversight and regulation, they ensure no harmful chemicals are released back into the ecosystem. Dye houses and treatment plants, such as the one used in LA, largely don’t exist where many manufacturers dye their fabric.

So next time you are deciding between two tees, do a little research to find out how they are made.
In this modern era of corporate transparency, you should be able to find out where a company manufactures.
