What to Change The Earth? Change Your Shirt!

We at Graphic Perspective are proud to use environmentally friendly textiles made from hemp when creating custom-made apparel and accessories for your business or organization in the Rhode Island community.

Hemp in particular is one of the most promising crops for the future of our planet; it's one of the faster growing crops for textiles and requires few pesticides  - and no herbicides. It needs approximately half as much territory as cotton per ton of finished textile, and needs about 50 percent less water.  In fact, when you add processing into the equation, cotton uses more than four times as much water as hemp!

But that's not all: Did you know that hemp clothing is more comfortable than cotton? It's stronger, and more durable than cotton, and has insulative qualities that allow clothing wearers to stay cool in summer and warm in the winter. It's 4 times more absorbent than cotton, is flame retardant, and it also provides UV protection!

And as if that wasn't enough, consider this: from hemp we can get food, clothes, fuel, books, cleaning products, and even building supplies!

Hemp clothing is endowed with both softness and strength, as well as a host of ecologically friendly qualities, making hemp textiles ideal for green consumers looking for organic options that feels great and make a difference for the planet. When compared to other fibers like cotton, hemp is the far superior choice.

So for your next fundraiser, company picnic, or gathering, consider placing your order for environmentally friendly and superiorly comfortable uniforms, t-shirts, hats, accessories and more from Graphic Perspective  - where doing what's right looks good on you!
