Anvil Completes Fourth LCA In Two Years

New York City-based activewear manufacturer Anvil Knitwear Inc. has completed its fourth life cycle
assessment (LCA) in cooperation with Camco International, a global developer of greenhouse-gas
(GHG) emissions-reduction and clean-energy projects. Camco performed the GHG assessment on the
company’s AnvilSustainable™ T-shirts, which comprise recycled polyethylene terephthalate plastic
bottles and transitional cotton, a type of cotton grown on farms that are switching to organic
processes. The analysis, which uses a cradle-to-grave approach, revealed the T-shirt’s carbon
footprint to be 3.29 kilograms of carbon dioxide per T-shirt — a 15-percent-lower footprint than
Anvil’s conventional cotton T-shirt — with each AnvilSustainable T-shirt preventing approximately
three plastic bottles from being sent to landfills.

“At Anvil, one of our top priorities is ensuring that our products are made using the most
earth-friendly processes we know,” said Anthony Corsano, CEO, Anvil Knitwear. “The completion of
our fourth LCA is further evidence of this promise to our customers and of our larger commitment to
environmental stewardship and transparency.”

Prior LCAs were completed on the company’s Anvil® Basic, AnvilOrganic® and AnvilRecycled™
cotton T-shirts. Anvil has initiated several sustainability measures recently: Last year, the
company launched, a website that informs consumers of their apparel’s carbon
footprint from cradle to grave. It recently received the first WRAPEe certification from Worldwide
Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) for its textile mill in Honduras, and also elected to have
its entire product line certified according to Oeko-Tex® Standard 100.
