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

Nothing about this skirt says Holiday

      Comments about RECYCLED HOLIDAY SWEATER SKIRT:

      I was SO excited when I saw this skirt online and read in the reviews that it ran BIG. I normally wear 2X, so I took a chance that it would fit since it had a stretchy waistband. I LOVED the cheerful, Christmasy look of the skirt and couldn't wait to get it.

      Upon arrival it was clearly NOT the holiday skirt. NOTHING about this skirt says "holiday." Seven of the 10 panels are blue, ranging from baby blue to navy. Two panels are black (one with a snowflake), and one panel is cream with baby pink. Obviously this is the regular sweater skirt and NOT the holiday one. I immediately went online to see if I could order another HOLIDAY skirt, but they were out of stock in my size. I'm guessing when they ran out of the holiday skirt, instead of informing the customer, they just opted to send the regular skirt in it's place. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am. That skirt is the one thing I had bought for myself for Christmas and I was so looking forward to wearing it.

      As far as the rating, I gave 1 star for the concept of the skirt and 1 star for the fit. As I said, I'm usually a 2X and this XL fit perfectly. The length of the skirt, hitting at the knee, was fine for me (5'11"). It felt comfortable and cozy. The waistband fit well; snug and comfortable. The great fit of the skirt makes my frustration even greater. Had this been in the correct skirt, I would have gleefully gotten a lot of wear out it. I would have considered keeping this skirt if there had been more contrast to the panels, but baby blue and pink are not my colors.

        I happened to stumble upon this website looking for a gift for my boyfriend for Christmas. I saw this amazing skirt (for myself!) and after reading the reviews saying it runs big, I ordered an XS (I am 5'4", 125lbs.) but I am almost always a size S. It arrived today, and even though it doesn't have cute, little animals anywhere on it, it has snowflakes and other Christmas-ie features that I just love! Perfect timing. It fits well, looks great and I can wear it to my company luncheon tomorrow! I can't wait!! And since I will only be able to wear this each December, I bought the regular sweater-skirt that I can wear all year round. One panel on that skirt has a peace sign, flower and dove. Super cute!

          As per others' advice, I ordered one size down and the skirt fits perfectly. It is a nice just-below-the knee length and it is well made and so festive. Perfect for the holidays!

          Comments about RECYCLED HOLIDAY SWEATER SKIRT:

          Due to the other reviewers, I purchased one size smaller and the fit was perfect...except for the length. If you're petite, this will be long. Mine came way below my knees. :( So, to compensate, I wore black suede boots with this and it looked great. (They need to offer a petite length.)

          It's super comfortable. Not just because it's got a knit, stretchy waist (Eat all you want at the party!), but the knit itself is comforable. I didn't even wear a slip because it's not necessary.

          I know that no two are the same, and mine was cute with partially having Santa's sleigh with a cute teddy bear at the end of it and a house below, and then some ski scene on another panel. That one had beads, but they were sewn on well.

          Inbetween those two was a white knit that had some textured pattern. One was a long vertical line of knit in some different stitch. Well, this was cut off-line and so the line did not fall straight and it was smack dab in the front. I didn't bother to return and get another because I might have not liked what I got as a replacement.

          Well, I wore this to the party and no one else had anything else like it. A couple of women asked about it and I said it was "repurposed." They all laughed and said it was just darling. So, if you want something to wear that no one else will be wearing, get this skirt. I wore it with a black cashmere cardigan that had rhinestone buttons to give it a little more elegance and less casual look.

          My only complaint/suggestion is I kept moving my hands searching for pockets. If would have been nice to have some pockets in this (not sweater knit as this would make width and be too bulky. Perhaps made of some thinner cotton knit fabric.) Other than that, it's just perfect for the holiday parties.

          Merry Christmas to all of you who read this also!

                  Love this idea! I read that it runs big, so I ordered a small, and it was still too large on me. (I am 5'5" and 140 pounds.) I don't think the length is very figure-flattering either. If it wasn't so expensive, I would have kept it for an "ugly Christmas sweater" party. But unfortunately it was just a miss for me.
