C-FREE: SanMar Launches Sustainable and Carbon-Neutral Apparel Line

SanMar Corporation is committed to reducing its environmental impact, and its C-FREE (short for "carbon-free") line of sustainable apparel is a testament to this commitment. With partnerships, manufacturing improvements, and better material choices, SanMar is paving the way for a more sustainable future, one recycled tee at a time.

One way SanMar is striving for sustainability is through achieving carbon neutrality. Carbon neutrality means balancing carbon emissions with carbon sequestration, which involves removing and storing carbon from the atmosphere. SanMar achieves carbon neutrality by offsetting emissions made during the production and manufacturing of C-FREE products with investments in renewable energy, energy efficiency, and forestry projects.

SanMar purchases these offsets through CarbonFund.Org, a respected leader in the fight against climate change. The first project that SanMar supported was the installation of wind turbines in India, which generate power from wind energy and reduce emissions generated from non-renewable sources. This project offset the carbon footprint of SanMar's initial C-FREE collection to zero.

The first line of C-FREE polos, the "C-FREE Five," uses 100% recycled polyester and has a lower carbon footprint than traditional polos. These polos are also snag-proof, moisture-wicking, and resist UV rays. While SanMar is starting with Port Authority products, they have plans to expand C-FREE to their other brands in the future.

By introducing C-FREE, SanMar demonstrates its commitment to sustainability and establishes itself as a leader in the industry for carbon-neutral products. The company's commitment to reducing its environmental impact is part of a larger initiative to be better together for good. SanMar's evolving commitment to sustainability and corporate responsibility can be found in their Corporate Responsibility Report.

Overall, SanMar's C-FREE line is a great choice for those who want to make a positive impact on the environment without sacrificing quality and style. With carbon-neutral options available, customers can make a meaningful contribution towards reducing the world's carbon footprint.
