In addition to the eco-friendly options available with the hat itself, SL Black label can offer embroidery using a 100% recycled thread. The recycled thread will not cost any more than embroidery using a standard embroidery thread. Made from recycled plastic bottles, producing a high-quality finish, and helping to re-use post-consumer waste!
To help pass the recycled thread story through to the wearer of the cap, we can apply a compostable peak sticker with a QR code that takes the wearer to the embroidery threads website.

One of our several sustainable cap options includes our 100% recycled polyester baseball cap. Along with our stocked recycled polyester beanie, offering this across both woven and knitted styles.
To make a difference, recycled polyester has been developed. Using recycled polyester instead of virgin polyester means we are less dependent on fossil fuels and in turn means we put less virgin polyester into land fill or worse – floating in our oceans. Producing recycled polyester requires less energy and produced fewer carbon emissions.
