Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) April 11, 2007
http://www.fairhemp.com -- Fair Hemp, the Sustainable and Sweatshop-Free clothing and accessories manufacturer, makers of headwear from hemp and organic cotton since 2003, releases a new hat style just in time for Earth Day. Fair Hemp's line of hemp headwear is constructed from 55% organically grown hemp and 45% certified organic cotton and dyed using low impact reactive dyes. The new military style cap is distinctly modern, yet produced using sustainable fabrics and methods. These hats are ideal for embroidery or work as a basic paired with your favorite organic t-shirt and jeans.
Hemp headwear offers a comfortable, durable and sustainable alternative to the traditional cotton or plastic hat. As few as 100 hemp/organic cotton military caps can prevent over 7 pounds of agricultural chemicals from entering the environment. Not to mention these hemp blends conserve over 4,400 gallons of fresh water compared to what goes into a regular cotton baseball hat.
An amazing benefit of hemp blended headwear is the natural UV protection rating of 50+. Cotton hats lose their UV protective ability with as little as 5 days of exposure while hemp will retain UV protection much longer. Hemp's fiber structure is also naturally anti-bacterial - an important feature for fabric worn against the skin.
Ideal for those who want to add some style while practicing responsible consumerism, the Fair Hemp military caps are available in black, navy blue, khaki and olive. Suggested retail price is $9.95 and can be found at select retailers in the US and online. Wholesale is available to retailers, embroiderers and screenprinters for decorating and resale. Most Fair Hemp products are currently manufactured in China (due to laws prohibiting domestic hemp production) under fair labor manufacturing principles. For more information on Fair Hemp's line of eco products and their straightforward policy of No Sweatshops, No Pesticides, No Problem, check out the website at http://www.fairhemp.com.
About Fair Hemp: Fair Hemp began as the brainchild of Alicia DeVito with her brother Alex. Since starting in 2003, the company has remained committed to sustainable development and the ideal that eco-friendly fashion design should appeal to a broad audience, rather than a specific niche. Fair Hemp offers apparel basics, baseball caps, tote bags and even athletic wristbands among other private label options. All of Fair Hemp's products are perfect for customization, either through any local embroidery or screen printing shop, or through one of their partners in the U.S.
