We not only select clothing suppliers who not only create high quality and comfortable products, but we intentionally choose suppliers who meet ethical and environmental standards. We strive to partner with companies who can create a great product at a reasonable price and treat people, and the earth, well in the process. You can learn more about the companies we partner with below.
All of our products are created “on demand”, when you order them. This allows us to only produce items we get an order for, avoiding textile waste from overproduction. Our printing partner’s high-quality printing tech creates almost no waste-waters and uses less energy than standard industry printers, lowering our carbon footprint.
Though Printful has fulfillment centers all over the world where they print apparel for companies globally, the primary fulfillment centers used by National Parks Supply Co. are in Los Angeles, CA, Dallas, TX, and Charlotte, NC.
Bella + Canvas
We use Bella + Canvas for the majority of our apparel. They are an industry leader in social and environmental responsibility. Bella + Canvas is a member of the Fair Labor Association and is committed to the fair treatment of all workers including not using child or forced labor, providing a safe work environment, and fair compensation. All factories and supply chain partners are WRAP Certified (WRAP is the world’s largest independent certification for responsible apparel manufacturing).
None of Bella + Canvas’ cotton is sourced from China’s Xinjiang Region, where there is evidence of the use of prison labor and situations of forced labor.
Bella + Canvas uses 7x less water than the average for clothing manufacturers, saving 24 million gallons a week. Any water used goes through a filtration system that allows it to be recycled. Their manufacturing facilities and LA Headquarters produce almost no landfill because Bella + Canvas recycles as much as possible. Cutting is optimized to reduce plastic use, and excess fabric is recycled into a number of things like baby bibs or stuffing for upholstery.
Next Level Apparel
We use Next Level Apparel for some of our clothing products. Next Level Apparel is committed to ensuring that their products are produced in a fair and socially responsible manner. They do not use child or forced labor, provide reasonable and safe working conditions and fair compensation.
