What is recycled cotton?

The process starts with pre-consumer textile waste; this ranges from errors during the weaving process to damaged/leftover finished goods – this would all normally be sent to the landfill or incinerated. The material is then ground up and re-spun into yarn. With this process there is no need to re-dye the yarn and it comes in many colors. The yarn can be used create a multitude of new products!

3 environmental benefits to recycled cotton:

  • – Recycled cotton doesn’t require land use (no watering, no new pesticides/fertilizers)
  • – Saves water & pollutants by not re-dying yarn
  • – Incinerator & landfill reduction

Green 3 offers many items in their product line that are made of recycled cotton, including hand warmers, scarves, mittens, hats, throw blankets and sweaters. All of these items are made with 75% pre-consumer recycled cotton and 25% acrylic. They are machine washable/dryable and super soft!

New Spring-Summer Arrivals

Earlier this week we highlighted some of our new spring-summer 2014 women’s apparel. Today we are excited to introduce additional new items from our spring-summer collection. They are all made in the U.S.A. and feature environmentally-responsible fibers, ink and dyes. You can also view all of our spring-summer items here.

This collection includes six “Local Shelter” tees: three for women and three for men. We will donate 10% of all profits associated with these tees to local animal shelters in our community who bring aid and comfort to animals in need. The USA-made, organic cotton tees feature water based inks and dyes, and are perfect for animal lovers everywhere.

   

   

   

 

Men’s Organic Tees

Our unisex tees are made from 100% organic cotton and feature environmentally-friendly, water-based dyes and inks. They are pre-shrunk, machine washable and dryable, and of course made in the U.S.A.

   

   

 

Junior Throws and Onesies

Our “Safari” junior throws are made from the same recycled cotton fabric as our sweaters and handwarmers. These adorable throw blankets are 40 x 30 inches, machine washable, dryable, and very soft. We also have “Wild Thing” organic cotton baby onesies to match!

   

   

   

   

 
By popular demand we are also now offering four different styles of junior throws with the option of personalization. In the same 40 x 30 size and knit with the same recycled cotton fabric as our other Junior throws, these four designs allow you to personalize with the name of your choice. Each name will be knit directly into the blanket as shown in the images here. Optionally, you can also purchase these throws without personalization.
