Social & Environmental Responsibility

At Pearison Inc., parent company of Band Shoppe, we believe in being good corporate citizens. Our commitment to our customers and employees includes our promotion of fair, safe, and environmentally friendly work practices in manufacturing all our garments and accessories. But it isn’t always about profit in a family business; we also know it is important to reach out into the communities where we work and live to support our friends, family, and neighbors.


Environmentally Friendly Packaging — we ship your Band Shoppe order without printed packing slips in corrugated containers made from recycled materials. Once used, these containers are 100% recyclable for use in the manufacture of other paper products. We recycle or reuse all containers that pass through our facility to further reduce waste.

What We Are Doing Today

  • We reuse or recycle most of our incoming packaging materials (cardboard, polystyrene, shredded paper, airbags, etc.), we use composite pallets and totes for shipping, and our corrugated boxes used for repackaging are made from post-consumer recycled content
  • We shred, recycle and/or repurpose internally printed documents to cut down on paper usage and office waste
  • We reuse pallets, repairing when necessary, throughout distribution
  • Increased use of e-mail which greatly reduces the amount of paper used, business records are digitized to minimize hard copy document storage, multi-functional devices (for faxing, printing and photocopying) reduce energy and paper usage
  • We encourage staff and visitors to recycle bottles, plastics, and aluminum cans by placing recycling bins at strategic points throughout our office
  • We recycle our old computers as part of our IT replacement strategy
  • We have reduced the amount of our landfill waste by finding ways of recycling waste material, either in-house or in conjunction with others who are able to use the material constructively
  • Reduced paper usage with electronic accounting practices

Catalog Paper from Responsible Sources We view the protection of the environment as a very important business obligation. We proudly state that our catalogs are printed on paper that is Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified. It contains fiber from carefully managed, responsibly harvested forests that adhere to strict environmental and socioeconomic standards.

Taking Care of Our Employees…
All of our custom uniforms and flags are always handmade here in Southern Indiana using a cell-manufacturing system that utilizes working teams paid a fair hourly wage. These cell systems focus on garment quality in teams rather than the number of pieces produced individually. Pearison Inc. also encourages health and wellness through regular visits from a registered health professional and yearly health fairs, as well as promoting employee wellness by participating in locally organized fitness events.

… and the Community!

  • During the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pearison Inc. dedicated employees, materials, and machines to produce washable face masks to fulfill the shortages at local hospitals, clinics, and patient support services
  • Pearison Inc. annually participates in the local Relay for Life, raising money through employee fundraising and office events to help support this cause
  • Every December, Pearison Inc. and its Employees provide Holiday baskets to needy families through the local community
  • Pearison Inc. supports the community throughout the area by giving to a variety of local groups, including reading programs, youth organizations, sports programs, emergency services, and much more!
