You Look Good In Green

Be green all year with cozy accessories that not only feature the recycled symbol, but are also made from leftover material collected from apparel and upholstery factories that would otherwise be discarded. One size fits most adults. Made in the USA by Green 3.

Please note: the patterns for the mittens are intentionally random and will vary. Consistent with the use of recycled materials, each is created by maximum fabric utilization resulting in minimal excess waste.



Please note: Due to their seasonal nature, these items have been discontinued. When they sell out, they will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

ONLY THE SCARF IS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.

Growing up, Michigan farm girl Sandy Martin witnessed first-hand the the health repercussions of conventional farming with pesticides. Later, when she worked in the apparel industry, she saw how some manufacturers negatively affected the environment and communities where they operated. So with the help of her husband Jim, Sandy founded an apparel company based on honesty, environmental awareness, and high-quality American-made designs. Their manufacturing process is completely green and uses no PVCs, plastisols, heavy-metal inks, or chlorinated bleaches. They reclaim waste fabric from their own production, from other garment makers, and from thrift stores and give these cast-offs new life in creative items like T-shirt scarves. Headquartered in a 19th century horse carriage terminal on the shores of Lake Winnebago in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the Martins' operation is dedicated to creating apparel jobs both there and throughout the U.S. They also work with Aspiro, a non-profit in Green Bay, Wisconsin that specializes in teaching job skills to cognitively disabled adults. Some of the Martins' designs are cut and sewn by adults in the program, promoting independent living.

          This stylish muffler was used as a prize at a recycling and waste reduction conference in Portland Oregon. It was on display before it was awarded and most people who saw it were clamoring to win it. Made from recovered cotton with recycling icons on it, it made the perfect statement for waste management professionals and environmental advocates alike.

                My sister-in-law is very hard to shop for and this was the perfect fun item to buy for a christmas gift.

                Service and delivery comments:

                I wish that the invoice would not have been in the box. Since it was christmas time I think there should be an option to have an e-mailed itemized itinerary

                Comments about Green Recycled Icon Accessories:

                I liked the idea of recycled cotton mittens bearing the RECYCLING logo. However, when I received the product, it was hard to determine exactly what the design was. Also, there was something strange about the fit of the mittens. They weren't particularly comfortable.

                    You can't go wrong with these items. I was pleasantly surprised with the width of the scarf and just how warm it keeps my neck and ears in the wind. The mittens fit all size hands.
