Here at SanMar, our Family Values are at the heart of everything we do. We understand that we have the exciting opportunity to have a positive impact on the communities in which we are involved. This is why Making a Difference is one of our core values and drives many of our decisions.
SanMar strives to make a difference every day in our communities and in the lives of our employees and people who make our products around the world. We are also committed to corporate responsibility. We believe in supporting the people who create, ship and sell our apparel and accessories, in delivering quality, sustainable products that are ethically and responsibly sourced, and doing the right thing for our planet.
Some of the ways SanMar made a difference in 2018 alone included supporting 135 community organizations, diverting 800 gallons of textiles from landfill through our home office recycling program, launching 3 supplier and factory trainings and recycling 21,979 pounds of electronic waste.
Recently, the SanMar corporate office in Issaquah participated in a volunteer plant-a-tree day, in honor of Arbor Day. In addition, there was an in-office plant sale that helped support the Friends of the Conservatory, a Seattle-based non-profit that supports the Volunteer park Conservatory and its plant collection.
Making a difference is something that anyone can do, whether it’s a company like SanMar or a one-person independent shop. If you’re making a difference in your community, let us know! We love hearing what our customers and colleagues are doing locally and globally. Share your “Making a Difference” story with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
