I Wanna Hold Your Hand

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 MITTENS:

Love the design and materials, however, they only came in one-size-fits-all and they are way too big for my paws. It is difficult to find mittens these days, I detest gloves. So, they will be adjusted to fit.

        They're pretty, but the seams on the inside are uncomfortable. They were a gift, and I kept them and gave them, but I thought the seams were a problem.

                    I was really excited for these peace sign gloves to come in the mail. I love uncommon goods. All of their stuff is different and fun. I have to say I was a little disappointed with these gloves. Because they are from recycled materials, their wasn't one peace sign on the glove that actually looked like a peace sign. I still think they are very comfy. They have a cute color too. If I was going to buy them again, I probably wouldn't get the peace sign. If they had one peace sign it would of made all the difference.
