Geekhouse goes green! Literally and figuratively. These came to be with help from Phil (@liveproudphil) and the LiveProud Group. An organization dedicated at providing high-quality sportswear from recycled and eco-friendly sources, and most importantly, they’re Made in the USA.
We always wanted to source a greener option for t-shirts and ‘swag’ but often times it isn’t easy. Big brands like Anvil and Gildan have jumped on the bandwagon offering wholesale options at a premium; but with no transparency or real dedication to the terms of sustainability.
Which is why… we were smitten with LiveProud and their creative solutions to waste reduction focused directly in New England. People helping people.
“SailProud’s signature EcoWear Tech Tee, for example, is made of approximately five post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, taken directly from US landfills, and then fabricated and constructed in the US as well. Besides reducing the amount of wasted landfill space, repurposing the bottles will prevent more than 5.5 pounds of carbon emissions from being released, per shirt, as well as saving enough energy to light a 60-watt lightbulb for 6 hours.” -LiveProud
