80,000 dams, 51 interviews, one film – and now one hat. Celebrate the DamNation film, which chronicles a growing movement to tear down obsolete dams, with the organic cotton canvas/polyester mesh DamNation™ Trucker Hat.
Dam removal is no longer the work of a fictional Monkey Wrench Gang. It's real, upon us, and a cornerstone of the modern environmental and cultural movements. Starting in the summer of 2011, filmmakers Ben Knight, Travis Rummel and Matt Stoecker began a series of road trips across, up and down the United States. They accessed remote rivers by air and floated some of our country's critical waterways to research and chronicle a growing movement to tear down obsolete dams. Over the next two-plus years, the crew traveled from Maine to California and Alaska to Arizona to document some of the concerns about America's 80,000 dams and the reasons behind the increasing number being removed annually. The result is the film DamNation: 80,000 dams, 51 interviews, one film – and now one hat to commemorate the filmmakers' efforts. The DamNation™ Trucker Hat is made of 100% organic cotton canvas and polyester mesh.

Made in China.
In 1996, with an increased awareness of the dangers of pesticide use and synthetic fertilizers in growing conventional cotton, we began the exclusive use of organically grown cotton in all of our cotton products.
The quality of organic cotton is equal to or better than conventionally grown cotton, yet organically grown methods support biodiversity and healthy ecosystems, improve the quality of soil and often use less water. Growing organically takes more time, requires more knowledge and skill, and, for now, costs more. But it’s worth it.
To ensure we are buying cotton that is organic as defined by the USDA’s National Organic Program, we require numerous certificates issued by an accredited third-party certification body for every step of the supply chain, from farm to factories.
