Ethical Sourcing
& Sustainability

Our Shipping Process

Our move to a more sustainable shipping process meant evaluating our fulfillment processes. For smaller orders, we ship using a recycled Kraft mailer that's sea turtle safe and printed with algae-based ink. For larger orders, we currently ship using a cardboard mailer and non-toxic recyclable gum tape.

Building Healthier Coastlines

Creating true environmental change requires more than just offsetting your carbon footprint. It requires transparency in your supply chain while you source fabrics made ethically, sustainably, and with the highest quality. Come learn more about each product you love at MANG, and help us build a more sustainable future.

Organic Cotton

We looked all over for the most butter-soft organic cotton, and we found it right here in the USA in the northeast. Our cotton is not only 100% organic, it is also pesticide, GMO, and chemical free. That means you could literally put these shirts in a compost bin and watch them biodegrade.

Performance Shirts

Our UPF shirts are sourced from a company in the USA who ethically looms their fabric in Colombia. We choose this Colombian manufacturer based on the incredible quality of their fabric, as well as the fair wage and sustainable energy practices of their facilities, making these the best UPF shirts on the market.

With a UPF 50 rating, these products block 98% of harmful UVA/B rays so you can ditch the sunscreen and help save our ocean’s reefs while you’re at it. They carry the Skin Cancer Foundation's Seal of Recommendation, so you can feel safe putting the whole family in our UPF and enjoying the sun without the burn. And with moisture- and odor-wicking technology built right in, these shirts keep you fresh all day long.

Neck Gaiters

Our UPF neck gaiters are cut and sewn in the USA in the southeast, just like our UPF shirts and hoodies. Using a sublimation process like our MANGroflage shirts, the gaiters are printed with an edge-to-edge pattern and then cut to fit. The UPF fabric is ethically loomed in Honduras and then assembled here in the USA.

Woven Bracelets

To create the perfect bracelet for MANG, we partnered with Wanderer who hand makes their jewelry in Bali. The bands and the wooden charms are handcrafted, making each a one-of-a-kind creation—and the charms themselves are sustainably made from local up-cycled wood. Even the bags are screen printed and stitched in the same Balinese village.

Hats

MANG currently uses Richardson’s wholesale operations to supply us with our blanks for patched and embroidered hats. Although Richardson is headquartered in the USA, they are vertically integrated with factories across the globe.

Richardson’s corporate responsibility states they only run factories with fair labor and hiring practices. However, in 2021 and beyond, MANG is exploring other partnerships to increase our sustainability and lower our carbon footprint.
