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 - Skunk and Mink:

These gloves aren't as thick or soft as I expected; in fact, they're pretty thin and a little stiff. I thought about sending 'em west to a friend in Cali who runs up to the mountains for fun, but even she'd wanna play in the snow and these aren't THOSE type of gloves. Still, they're cute and I got them on sale. So, I'll wear 'em to make a statement ... but, only when I know I won't be outside for very long.

Service and delivery comments:

I ordered this stuff last Friday? Maybe Thursday? And got everything packed in (1) box - thank you! - this morning (Wednesday). I'd say that was a quick turnaround.

A family member has loved skunks for decades, &
has quite a collection of plush skunks, figurines,etc., but has nothing like this. I think she will really like this skunk ensemble.

Comments about Recycled Cotton Animal Mittens - Skunk and Mink:

These cute mittens wouldn't protect hands from the bite of a New England winter, but were perfect for the milder climes of North Carolina.

Comments about Recycled Cotton Animal Mittens - Skunk and Mink:

I got these skunk mittens for my daughter after she fell in love with them when browsing the catalog. They are so unique and eye-catching, and the eyes give them so much personality! I'm so impressed with the quality, the design, the value, and the fact that they came gift boxed although I truly do not recall checking that box. What pretty packaging! Thanks Uncommon Goods. You will not be disappointed with these adorably cool mittens.
