What's up everybody, Chris here. Sorry these tees are taking a while to get up on the site. We hit a bit of a roadblock getting the materials. Turns out the fabric we were sourcing was imported from another country, made in poor conditions. If you've been following along on our Made in USA journey, you know I'm pushing real hard for equality in treatment of our fellow humans. I want the people who make your gear to be treated with respect and care AND paid well.
For years I've refused to drop product that was inferior quality and now that I've been learning so much about materials I refuse to drop product that was made by someone treated so badly. So... we've been searching high and low for a humane tee process (that are still Phalanx quality) and we've done it! Here is what you can expect from our tee fabrics production now (and hoodies btw):
We are a green company through and through. By focusing on energy reduction, water reduction and waste reduction, we analyze every stage of our production process—taking every opportunity to minimize our ecological footprint. Our ultra-efficient dye machines save over 24 million gallons of water a week and our manufacturing facilities produce almost zero landfill.
We're designing it here, dyeing it here and cutting it here. All of our production is 100% sweatshop-free and Platinum W.R.A.P. Certified.
So... we're not able to drop the wide variety of colors I was hoping just yet but I'll keep working hard behind the scenes. These are gonna fit a little different from what you're used to but if you're reading this far you know it's the right thing to do.
