Get Your Center for Sustainability Apparel!

Now you can purchase responsibly manufactured apparel embroidered with the Center for Sustainability's logo! We purchase the garments directly from Clothing Matters, Inc. and have the items embroidered by Picture This Embroidery, right here in Grand Rapids!

All of our merchandise is composed of either 100% organic cotton or a blend of 55% hemp fibers and 45% cotton fibers. The hemp gives the benefit of temperature versatility, breathability, and UV-resistance. Hemp is also typically grown without pesticides or additional irrigation water, and will not shrink with normal washing. The smaller cotton component typically helps soften the garment.

Help us support local business and our efforts here at the Center by purchasing one (or a few!) of our apparel items.

Refund Policy: We would be happy to provide you a full refund if you are unsatisfied with your purchase for any reason. Merchandise must be returned in unworn condition within 10 days of receipt.
