Creating a Canvas For Good: Corporate Responsibility at SanMar

January 12, 2021

This past year, SanMar remained committed to being a business that created positive change. From supporting our communities and customers, to reducing our environmental impact, doing the right thing was at the heart of all our decisions.

Our new 2020 Corporate Responsibility Report shares how blank apparel is just the beginning of countless inspiring stories. At SanMar, we believe a t-shirt is more than just a shirt—it’s a canvas for good.

The report highlights three areas that kept us focused and positive in 2020: People, planet and product.

People: We know our choices can make a difference and positively impact lives. Whether at one of our distribution centers, home office or one of our supply chain partners, people are at the heart of everything we do.

Planet: SanMar is committed to being a good steward of the environment, which starts by looking inward. We regularly evaluate our operations to assess our performance in terms of energy use and emissions, water use and waste reduction.

Product: The journey of creating products with positive impact means looking closer at how they are made. We recognize the choices we make, from design to development, sourcing to manufacturing, can lead to good things when done right.
