A Patchwork Hug

Embrace the winter weather with a cool, patchwork scarf that'll keep you toasty warm, inside and out.

The panels that make up these quilted scarves are recycled from t-shirts and sweaters. The five panels on each side come in a wintery pallet of blues, tans, greens and blacks, but each combination is as unique as a snowflake. And as you wrap up to keep out the chill, you can feel warm at heart knowing that all donor garments come from Goodwill, so your comfort is benefiting someone else as well. Re-made in the USA.

Every other panel will be t-shirt material with sweater material in between. Every scarf will have alternating panels of blue, black, natural, tan, and green. The panels may be solid or a print with the most prominent color being those listed above.
Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

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
