On February 5th, Bard MBA in Sustainability spoke with Eric Henry, President of TS Designs. TS offers the most sustainable t-shirts and printing options on the planet. They use organic cotton, recycled materials and even an organic  “dirt to shirt” grown and made in North Carolina shirts and use water based inks. They also use on site solar, wind and compost power to power much of their facilities.

Eric has always had a heart for farming and gardening from a little kid- despite the fact he grew up in a large city. He started out thinking he would study agriculture – but his journey led him to cotton, shirts and sustainability.  

Eban Goodstein, Director of the Bard MBA in Sustainability asserts "Creating profitable, scalable businesses that respect all stake-holders is at the core of the Bard MBA's mission. We are thrilled Eric took the time to spend his lunch with our students telling us about TS Designs and how they are changing the rules and transforming the game of responsible apparel manufacturing and distribution in the US.
