Monkey In The Middle

Quit monkeying around and come cuddle! Done in the same iconic colors of the sock monkey, this super-cozy blanket is made from leftover material collected from apparel and upholstery factories that would otherwise be discarded. 75% recycled cotton, 25% acrylic. Each is slightly different in color and pattern in order to get the most out of the fabric scraps and minimize waste. Made in the USA.

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 SOCK MONKEY BLANKET:

        I love that this blanket is made from recycled materials - and it's adorable! The sock monkey feature is a sentimental throwback and brought a smile to my face when I received it in the mail. I cannot attest to the softness of the blanket, as it was a gift and I did not take it out of the packing. I'm looking for a reason to buy one for myself!

              It was a gift for my 1St great grand baby.
              I love the fact that I can start her 100% green and made in America. Plus using a timeless childhood favorite.

              I am most satisfied with this purchase.

              Thank You

                    My mom loves sock monkeys, so I thought this would be a good birthday present. She was so excited when she opened it! The blanket is a little bit small for a full-grown woman to really use, but it's cute to have around. She has it draped over a chair right now, and it looks like the monkey's just sitting there, waving at you. Smiles ahoy!

                        I wanted a blanket with material that didn't create static during the dry winter. I also bought it because it is the perfect size to cover my dog and it has a monkey exactly like his toy monkey. I love it and he loves it. I also liked the fact that it was made from recycled cotton.

                          This blanket is great. It's perfect for my soon to be son. It's the perfect size for an infant and he can still grow into it for many years. It's somewhat heavy but thin so it's perfect to use year round. I just love this blanket.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          Very fast and friendly service. Prompt delivery. Very impressed and pleased with this company and the product I purchased.
