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 RECYCLED COTTON ANIMAL MITTENS- RACCOON AND FOX:

    Bought these for the guy I'm dating, I guess it's a good thing his hands are larger than mine cause these are huge! I tried them on and was glad I had decided not to get a pair for myself.

    They aren't as soft as I expected but are still better than I really thought they'd be.

    They were my back-up plan and I'm a little happy my first plan didn't work out. So yeah, these are worth it, mostly cause they're super adorable.

      I gave the hat and mittens as gifts, but kept the scarf for myself and love it. I agree that the mittens run large, not big enough to return them.

        Comments about RECYCLED COTTON ANIMAL MITTENS- RACCOON AND FOX:

        These mittens match the scarf I bought before the holidays so was looking forward to getting them They are very cute but there is no way that they will fit my hands. They are listed as one size fits all but I'm not sure that they would fit most women. I'll need to look into return policies and whether it makes sense to return or gift to a larger handed friend in the future ;)

        As a side note, I love the fox scarf, it's warm and perfect!

          It was a Christmas gift for my daughter and she loved them. They are so cute and comfortable. Kind of pricey, but they are a recycled product, so I didn't feel that bad about spending the money.

            I bought this for my sister-in-law, and it was a lot softer than I imagined, and just as adorable as in the photos! I'll probably come back to buy similar ones, since my roommate & I thought theses were fantastic.

              Cute animal mittens are made for bear paws--so big they fell off my hands. They're poorly sized and had to be returned.
