The ABCs of Recycling

Tuck into your ABC's when you cozy up on the couch or settle in for the night with this colorful blanket that bears the letters of the alphabet along with a whole zoo of animal friends. This cuddly child-size throw is made almost entirely from leftover material (75% recycled cotton, 25% acrylic) collected from apparel and upholstery factories that would otherwise be discarded. Each is one of a kind and has slight differences in color in order to get the most out of the fabric scraps and minimize waste. Made in New York.

Not intended for sleepwear.

Growing up, Michigan farm girl Sandy Martin witnessed first-hand the the health repercussions of conventional farming with pesticides. Later, when she worked in the apparel industry, she saw how some 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 designs. Their manufacturing process is completely green and uses no PVCs, plastisols, heavy-metal inks, or chlorinated bleaches. They reclaim waste fabric from their own production, from other garment makers, and from thrift stores and give these cast-offs new life in creative items like T-shirt scarves. Headquartered in a 19th century horse carriage terminal on the shores of Lake Winnebago in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the Martins' operation is dedicated to creating apparel jobs both there and throughout the U.S. They also work with Aspiro, a non-profit in Green Bay, Wisconsin that specializes in teaching job skills to cognitively disabled adults. Some of the Martins' designs are cut and sewn by adults in the program, promoting independent living.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Animal Alphabet Blanket:

      Baby shower gift was a big hit--esp with guests under 10, who spent hours ID'ing each animal. (U" stumped all, inc the adults--who finally had to resort to Google!)
      Nicely made--even the reverse side. I want one for myself!

      Here is the first photo of the recipient, five months post-shower. I'm sure she will find it fun too--should be any day now, just as soon as she learns to flip onto her belly!

          Comments about UncommonGoods Animal Alphabet Blanket:

          I bought this blanket as a gift for a friend of mine who is having a baby in March. I was unsure if the quality was going to be what I expected, but when I received the blanket my expectations were exceeded. The construction is heavy, and the material is soft but not smothering. The blanket reminds me of my favorite heavy blankets I had as a kid. It's smaller than an adult would want to cover up with, but is perfectly sized for a crib.
