The American Eagle, an American company that sells apparel for the military, has decided to make a statement.
The company announced on its Facebook page that its shirts are made of 100% recycled polyester.
“American Eagle is an American brand, founded in 1919, that is known for its quality products, the most innovative products, and the highest-quality products available today,” the company wrote.
“The American Eagle logo is our way of saying that we are committed to our customers and that we believe in their pursuit of quality.”

The statement comes as the military prepares to move into the next stage of the 2020 presidential campaign.
According to the Associated Press, the military has a budget of $2.8 trillion, which includes spending on everything from recruiting to equipping soldiers with the latest military gear.
As a result, the government is spending more on the military than it is on health care, housing, and other programs, which the AP describes as “far higher than the budget of other industrialized nations.”
The AP reported that the military spends $5.6 billion annually on health, housing and social services, with nearly half of that money going to the military itself.
In a statement, American Eagle said its new shirts are “designed to keep you fit, comfortable and safe.”
“Our shirts are crafted with a recycled polyurethane that is 100% recyclable, so they are made to last,” the statement said.
