Green 3

Green 3

Founded in 2006, Green3 is the brainchild of Sandy Martin, a Michigan farm girl turned apparel industry maven. Growing up on a farm, Sandy witnessed first-hand the health repercussions of conventional farming and pesticides. Later when she worked in the apparel industry, she saw how 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 products.

Going Green
Green 3 uses organic or recycled cotton in its products. The cotton is spun and knit into fabric, as well as screened and dyed with water-based inks in North Carolina. This process is completely green and uses no PVCs, plastisols, heavy-metal inks or chlorinated bleaches.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
From irregular T-shirts to the unusable ends of fabric bolts, Green 3 reengineers waste fabric from its own factories into creative items such as the Scraptee herbal pouch, the T-shirt scarf and UncommonGoods' new jewelry pouches. They also use secondhand materials from thrift stores and left over fabrics from garment manufacturers.

Made in America
Headquartered in a former horse carriage terminal from the 1800s, Green 3 is situated on the shores of Lake Winnebago in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and is dedicated to creating apparel jobs both there and throughout the U.S. Green 3 also works with Aspiro, a non-profit in Green Bay, Wisconsin that specializes in teaching job skills to cognitively disabled adults. Both the T-shirt scarves and suit totes are cut and sewn by adults in the program, giving them an opportunity for independent living. collection

        Comments about RECLAIMED HOLIDAY SWEATER SCARF:

        I was very excited when I found this. I bought three of these: one for my sister, mom, and myself. I thought it would be great to wear to holiday parties or events and a fun talking point. I had hoped the scarf would be more festive; maybe I ordered them too late, or it must have been the last parts of sweaters. There were several panels that were plain black, blue, or white with no designs on each scarf. I also thought they'd be thicker/warmer, but they are soft. If you're looking for something tame, this is for you.

            Comments about RECLAIMED HOLIDAY SWEATER SCARF:

            I should have bought this scarf a year ago but I held off. I regretted that decision all year (I mean, how often do you come across a scarf like this...) so finally bought it once holidays rolled around again.

            I LOVE IT. Tons of compliments from friends/strangers.

            My only complaint is that it's very thin. I would have put another layer in between the top/bottom layers so it was a bitt thicker (and warmer). But other than that, it's adorable.

                  Everything old is new again! This festive scarf will be your new favorite tradition for all your Christmas festivities. Ugly Sweater Party--check. Tree Trimming--check. Christmas Caroling--check. The scarf dresses up and goes casual. The thin width keeps the holiday patterns from feeling overwhelming. A real conversation piece you can wear.

                  Comments about RECLAIMED HOLIDAY SWEATER SCARF:

                  I bought three of these scarves on sale as gifts for next Christmas and both my husband and I thought they were great. Now I have to keep one for myself and I'm ordering two more. They are lightweight enough to be comfortable, but the sweater material makes them good for warmth, too. I live in Texas so lightweight is more practical for that month of cold weather we get (off and on) and I can get away with it for the holidays. The only con so far since I haven't washed them or even worn it, is that there is no choice of design though it's understood being made from recycled materials, which is another reason why they are so great and some designs are upside down that you'd rather weren't. I'm loving the gift idea!!

                    I was hoping for something more colorful and festive -- my boyfriend has a tacky Christmas sweater that he likes to wear, and I wanted to get him this scarf as a substitute. But the one I received is pretty tame -- the luck of the draw, I guess, but I don't think he's going to find this a very interesting or fun gift. It has no fun patterns or pictures like the ones in the pictures, nor does it have any of "your favorite holiday characters" (as the description implies that it will). I will still give it to him, but my guess is that he will probably want to return it. Also, the backing material doesn't feel very comfortable -- it's like a thin, scratchy t-shirt. It's just not worth the price. It would be nice if you could specify that you'd like a more colorful one or one with a figure like a snowman or a reindeer on it.
