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:
