REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

Happy Earth Day, everybody! At the Mountain®, we strive to make everyday Earth Day through innovative and eco-conscious practices. Not only do we care about providing you with the most epic of t-shirts, but we also want to make sure that our environmental impact is as minimal as possible. We are able to do this by being forward-thinkers in the screen-printing industry and by looking at our role in the bigger environmental picture. We've been in the game a while (over 20 years) and it has always been one of our main priorities to make ourselves "the greenest t-shirt company in America". 

At our facilities in New Hampshire, we are surrounded by the beauty of nature and we work hard everyday to preserve it.  Here is a shot of the Minnewawa River that runs next to our building.

  • Our green business initiatives span most aspects of what we do here; whether that be diligently recycling bottles and paper or minimalizing the amount of resources to produce our tees. 
  • We use only non-hazardous, water-based inks with no harmful plastics and phthalates. 
  • We have instated a revolutionary process called the Dye Oxidation System (DOS), which purifies our manufacturing waste water by removing colors and additives without the addition of chemicals. 
  • We also recycle our wastewater and have already reused over 1,000,000 gallons! 
  • There is a new initiative to reduce the amount of cardboard waste from shipping.  Last year alone, we recycled over 185,000 pounds.
Our closed-loop recycling program has allowed us to cut down on our cardboard use by recycling previously used boxes to make new ones to send to our customers.
