ENTER TO WIN: Hanes Goes Green(er)


Hanes is launching Hanes Green, a commitment to create more sustainable products, “green” its manufacturing and distribution processes, and share the news with consumers via a new Web site, www.hanesgreen.com.

A few ways that Hanesbrands Inc. is making a commitment to sustainability:

· Supply Chain

o Since 2007, HBI’s energy efficiency programs have reduced the amount of energy used to make products by 11 percent.

o In 2009, HBI reduced its carbon dioxide emissions from transportation and logistics operations by 41 percent through switching product shipping from truck to rail transportation where possible and through a significant effort to minimize air freight

o HBI operates three U.S. facilities that are LEED-certified, including one of the largest warehouses in the world: the company’s 1.3-million-square-foot distribution center in Perris, CA.

· Products

o EcoSmart® Hanes® Fleece, made in part from recycled plastic (EcoSmart® fleece was actually made with 25 million recycled plastic bottles this year);

o EcoSmart® Hanes® Socks, made with 55 percent recycled cotton fiber; and

o The fabric in 67 percent of Hanes men’s and boy’s undershirts is made using renewable energy.

To celebrate, Hanes is giving away 1 t shirt to a reader of mine!

  1. We make our life greener by regularly recycling everything possible. We also use CFLs, Energy Star appliances, and reusable shopping bags. We combine driving trips to save mileage — and turn things like lights off when not in use. *Thanks* for the giveaway!

    I recycle plastic bags & use the reusable bags when I remember. I use homemade cleaning solutions like vinegar & water to save the environment from harsh chemicals. I reuse some disposable items to get as much use as possible from them.

  13. My hubby always needs new t-shirts.
