About the Bella + Canvas t-shirt

The manufacturing of the t-shirts is lawful, ethical and safe for the workers and environment. Bella + Canvas products have an earth first-policy and use less water and energy as well as are virtually zero waste.

Water Reduction

Using newer, more efficient dye machines, means using 7x less water than the average for clothing manufacturers, saving 24 million gallons a week. All used water goes through a filtration system that allows it to be recycled.

Energy Reduction

Solar energy powering the sewing and cutting facilities, motion-sensor LED lighting and skylights throughout each building.

Virtually Zero Waste

The Bella + Canvas manufacturing facilities and LA Headquarters produce almost no landfill because they recycle pretty much everything that can't be turned into a tee. They've optimized their cutting to reduce plastic use, and excess fabric is recycled into a number of things like baby bibs or stuffing for upholstery.
