Crop To Campus – A Journey Of Sustainable Fashion

The Transparent Path to Responsibility

Responsibility begins when we sow the first cottonseed into the soil of the rain-rich states in the Southeast U.S. Most of our cotton is grown in this area – an area that provides enough natural water and eliminates the need for irrigation. It continues with dyeing, cutting and sewing our garments in Hanes® owned energy-efficient, low waste facilities across the globe. With over 100 years of making apparel, we can deliver sustainably made garments without sacrificing the comfort and quality you love.

STEP ONE Every ComfortWash™ garment begins with U.S. grown cotton, mainly grown in America’s southern states on naturally irrigated local farms.

STEP TWO The cotton travels to an energy-efficient, zero-waste facility within the U.S.—then spun into a superior, softer yarn.

3 STEP THREE The garments are cut and sewn in a Hanes® owned, locally employed facility in El Salvador. Our plant utilizes on-site renewable energy production including its water-treatment process.

Sharing More Than Words #CropToCampus

Hanes® invited college students to take a first-hand tour of our entire supply chain, from the locally-owned cotton fields of North Carolina to company-owned, energy-efficient facilities in El Salvador. This level of transparency left a lasting impression on our guests—as shown in their own words below:

“There are so many steps that go into making a T-shirt that you don’t really think about. You just pay money for the final product. It’s cool to see every step in the process and not take it for granted.”
