Earth Day Network Names Anvil Official T-Shirt And Knitwear Partner

New York City-based activewear manufacturer Anvil Knitwear Inc. has been named the official T-shirt and knitwear partner of Earth Day Network, an organization established to promote environmental citizenship. Anvil will be a leading sponsor of Earth Day -- to be celebrated April 25, 2010 -- and will participate in the associated 40th anniversary activities. The company will design and develop knitwear comprising organic, recycled, transitional and reprocessed polyethylene terephthalate fibers for Earth Day's apparel line, which will be sold online and through retail stores. The line also will be available to consumers at all Earth Day events, including Earth Day on the National Mall in Washington and celebrations scheduled in 40 cities globally.

Anvil also is developing an exclusive apparel line for Earth Day Network's The Green Generation™ campaign, which encourages people globally to find solutions for issues such as climate change and the global water crisis. The Green Generation line will feature AnvilSustainable™, AnvilOrganic® and AnvilRecycled® apparel, and will be available beginning in 2010 at Earth Day Network events and online.

Established after the original Earth Day in 1970, Earth Day Network now has more than 17,000 partners and organizations in 174 countries. In addition, more than 1 billion people worldwide participate in Earth Day activities.
