Racing Towards Health & Wellness

At Evergreen Enterprises, health and wellness isn't just a shopping trend; it's a way of life! We've all heard of the reports that have come out over the last couple of years that warn of the health dangers of sitting continuously for hours throughout the day, such as heart disease and more [CBS News]. Our team is working to combat those risks through exercise programs for employees before, during, and after office hours.

Evergreen Enterprises' fitness classes
A few years ago, we installed a small fitness room for employee-run fitness classes such as Zumba, PiYo, Insanity, and Strong, as well as bicycles for spin classes and elliptical machines. We also repainted our parking lot to add a walking track, while encouraging employees to walk twice a day during morning and afternoon breaks.

Our Virtual Appalachian Trail
The walking breaks became so popular that the company has virtually walked enough miles to cover the Appalachian Trail two years in a row! As studies have shown, this not only helps maintains good health, but also improves moods, morale and work performance by significant amounts [NBC News].

One of the ways we strive to be a better company is to become a better neighbor in the community. And we believe this happens both globally and locally.

We regularly participate as a company in Richmond, Virginia's most popular footrace, the Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10k. Evergreen Enterprises is just one of many corporate teams among the 30,000 race participants. The team dresses in branded green shirts and shows off their pride before and after the race has been completed. The unique route and thousands of spectators create a fun, heart-pumping race experience.

The 2017 Evergreen Enterprises Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10k Team

2017 Ukrop's Monument Ave. 10k flag
Last year, we decided to work with Sports Backers, the organizers of the race, as a corporate sponsor. As part of our sponsorship, our staff designed and produced a unique flag for the occasion. These flags were donated and displayed along the course and throughout the local area. Evergreen began as a flag company, and there's always been a special place in our hearts for flags. It became our unique way to help promote healthy habits in the community.

In the process of expanding our B. Boutique line of fashionable apparel and gifts for ladies and babies, we started thinking of ways to incorporate the values of healthy lifestyles into our products. The result was our B. Performance collection of clothing and accessories. We developed an assortment that would be suitable for consumers whether they're hitting the gym or running around town. We included unique features like mesh inserts, on-trend messaging and cut-out detailing, for an athletic assortment that's both functional and fashionable. Add a reusable water bottle and you're off!

Speaking of bottles, our Cypress Home Refresh line includes a complete selection of cups and other drinkware, including reusable water bottles. They come in a variety of materials including stainless steel and glass for eco-friendly and health conscious consumers. It's commonly known that water is an essential nutrient for your body [Web MD], and as you exercise, you need to drink water to stay hydrated. Using a reusable water bottle also helps protect the health of our environment and natural resources. In fact, our company leadership recently decided to eliminate all disposable plastic water bottles from the office. If you're ever visiting our headquarters, we'll be happy to offer you a drink of water in one of our reusable bottles, which you can take with you when you go.

Flag Materials

Evergreen's classic appliqué material

Our Applique flags are handcrafted from soft, 310 denier, high quality nylon fabric and often feature embroidered and embellished details. All designs are double-sided, like two flags sewn together! These flags offer all the Evergreen quality in slightly simplified designs and have a classic appeal.

Our Burlap flags were born from a hot trend, and they're now here to stay. We use an outdoor-safe poly-burlap with a rich, woven texture. Designs are applied with a screen printing technique, as well as 3D patch-on embellishments and embroidery. Like applique, they're all double-sided.

Our Satin flags offer an easy price point for customers on a tighter budget. They allow light to pass through, which illuminates the sublimated design.

A printed suede flag

Our Suede flags use a sublimated technique on a light-blocking material that allows designs to be read from both sides. In some cases, we even offer two different designs on front and back! These feature super softness, brilliant color, and non-fray stitching. We were the first to offer suede flags–and these are our top-selling flag type year-round.

Linen is our newest material in flags. It has a woven texture similar to burlap, but with a softer feel. Also like burlap, it includes screen printing along with suitable embellishments, and constructed like two flags back to back.

All our flags are outdoor flags. They're made from top-quality materials and are 100% outdoor safe. Our flag fabrics and dyes are UV-treated for fade resistance and long-lasting color.

With over 25 years in the flag business, we have the largest penetration in the market, and we've remained competitively priced against other vendors in the market.  We offer on-time delivery, and our vertical integration allows us to even provide in-season reorders.
