At Sportsbum, we care about the environment, its sustainability, and most importantly, Mother Earth! From daily recycling at the office to wearing our own bamboo fabrics, we continue to focus on being a better green company. We aim to reduce our environmental impact and support green initiatives for a better future for all. Our sourcing partners are constantly monitored to ensure these values are aligned. We acknowledge and appreciate customer feedback to constantly improve and grow. Our employees are proud to be part of the Sportsbum family, offering quality products at competitive prices, exceptional customer service, and knowing that we can make a difference, one day at a time.
Being environmentally friendly is in an inherent part of our business model and our socially conscious practices support our company's efficiencies in operations. Our main manufacturer has consolidated all aspects of their manufacturing processes within North America. By using state-of-the-art knitting machines to reduce energy consumption, the dye house uses only nontoxic materials and the cutting and sewing departments recycle upwards of 10% of the textile waste. Even our home office understands the correlation between environmental concern and fiscal prudence - we ship our products in biodegradable bags, recycle our bottles, glasses and paper and more. This is not a mistake. We believe in doing what’s right for the environment. It may not be the most glamorous way to do business, but we believe it's the right way.
In addition to scrupulous recycling and consolidation, we’ve reduced our socially conscious collection to focus only on products that contribute to a green environment. Our entire line is now made from bamboo. Bamboo does not require fertilizers or pesticides for cultivation and it grows rapidly and profusely without depleting the soil. Bamboo has a lower environmental impact than pesticide-laden conventional cotton and petroleum-derived nylon and polyester fabrics. Bamboo is also a superior fabric in terms of softness and functionality. Bamboo is inherently moisture wicking and anti-bacterial. This again, is an environmental choice that supports superior product and our business philosophy.
Sportsbum is a green company - by design. Join us! We care! We are Sportsbum!
