Hemptown 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.
