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 HOLIDAY HAT:

I bought this for my grown daughter for Christmas. The featured hat was so cute, but I admit I was leery about purchasing it, because I would have no choice of hat style, and some of the reviews were iffy. But I took a chance, because the idea was so unique, and my daughter likes one-of-a-kind gifts. She sent me a photo of herself wearing it, and I was surprised the hat was not bad at all! Black background, with a single, large, white snowflake toward the crown area. She said "When I opened it, I cried! I wished I could have given you a big hug and said thank you in person." That's a successful gift in my book!

          Comments about HOLIDAY HAT:

          Our extended family is having an "ugly Christmas sweater" party, where everyone must wear one. At this party, there will also be a Yankee Swap, and I purchased this hat, made from an old Christmas sweater, as the swap gift. Totally appropriate. The one I got has a big bejeweled tree in the center of it. Well made, whimsical, and too funny.

                This mix and match was a great idea, but it did not match. It wasn't even close!

                At these prices, I would have thought the staff would have used some taste in making sure the match was a good one.
