Follow us through the process of making a T-shirt responsibly – from the farm to production to consumer use to end of life.

Hanes Brands is committed to water conservation, and has reduced water use by 25 percent since 2007.

The key to making T-shirts – or any other type of apparel – in an environmentally and socially responsible way is to have as much control and influence over the process as possible.

At Hanes Brands, we manufacture approximately 80 percent of the apparel we sell in company-owned or controlled production facilities that provide jobs to employees who are respected, rewarded and encouraged to be socially active in their communities.

The carbon-dating process that dated Stonehenge to about 1848 B. was conducted by the technique's godfather, Willard Libby.

The University of Chicago professor developed radiocarbon dating in the late 1940s and won the 1960 Nobel Prize in chemistry for it.

The first is a process steam biomass boiler at the company’s textiles facility in the Dominican Republic, and the second is a biomass-fueled combined heat and power system connected to its textile and sock plants in El Salvador.

In El Salvador, for example, more than 50 percent of the company’s energy is generated from renewable sources.

The rest is a result of consumer use – primarily washing and drying.

Consumers can help mitigate the carbon footprint of their T-shirts and other clothes by washing in cold or warm water and line drying when possible.

Most of Hanes Brands’ T-shirt sewing operations are located in the Caribbean basin, including the Dominican Republic where the company has operated since 1973.
