Clothing Inc.: Hemptown Clothing is North
America's largest hemp t-shirt manufacturer, based in Vancouver BC.
They are a triple bottom line company, they care for the environment, and
human rights, while generating a profit for their employees and shareholders.
Their primary focus is working within the imprinted sportswear market -
offering an eco-alternative to the millions of conventional cotton t-shirts
sold every year. Growing the cotton for each conventional cotton t-shirt
requires 1/3lb of chemical pesticides. Hemptown manufactures eco-friendly
garments made from a blend of 55%/45% hemp/cotton. Hemp grows vigorously,
and generally doesn't require these chemicals, so their Hemptown blend reduces
pollution by over 50%. The addition of hemp also makes the garments 4 times
stronger and more durable, yet softer and more comfortable than cotton,
plus hemp is naturally UV and mildew resistant. In addition, Hemp
grows in cooler climates, and has significantly reduced water requirements
than cotton. Overall, Hemptown blended shirts use less resources, are superior
in quality, and are reasonably priced. Contact: Nina Schaffert E-mail:
