SustainU, a leading producer of apparel using fabrics made from 100% recycled materials that are manufactured in the USA, announced that the Army & Air Force Exchange Service will be featuring its graphic Tees in 35 of its largest stores for Earth Day.

"We are very excited to be partnering with the Exchange to bring a made-in-the-USA product to our troops and their families," said Chris Yura, CEO and founder of SustainU. "We know that our military families will be excited to support American job creation and to buy products that employ green innovation and technology."

With apparel made in North Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia, SustainU has reopened old factories and created jobs for hundreds of previously unemployed textile workers. Local manufacturing and recycled textile innovations have also contributed to dramatic environmental savings. Made from 100% recycled materials, old plastic bottles and cotton scraps, SustainU is able to conserve half a gallon of gasoline, thousands of liters of water and up to 12kg of CO2 emissions per pound of fabric.

"We are proud to support the Exchange's commitment to sustainability," said Trey Dunham, SustainU's Vice President of Corporate Communication. "The Exchange stores are setting the standard for exceptional environmental stewardship in the military resale community and we look forward to a long relationship going forward."

SustainU produces high-quality apparel using fabrics made from 100% recycled materials that are manufactured in the USA to provide extraordinary comfort and wear, while reducing environmental waste, carbon emissions and water use. Our mission is to change the way clothes are made to improve the environment, reinvigorate America's manufacturing sector, and educate the world about how clothing can positively impact people's lives.
