Sweat Free!

We believe that any products bearing the COLBY name or logo should be manufactured with the same values and commitment to human and environmental rights that we have at Colby. We attempt to ensure that our manufacturers are doing this by requesting a copy of their corporate Code of Conduct be on file in our Bookstore. We are also members of associations and buying groups that deal with the issue, and for some of the major clothing and apparel suppliers of collegiate merchandise. For more information, please feel free to e-mail our Director, Barb Shutt, at
