Customer Feedback Survey: Our Turn to Answer Your Requests

For the past few weeks, green 3 has sent out a customer feedback survey. On our survey, we asked everybody a variety of questions tailored to what we want to know about you. We may have slipped in some silly questions, but at least the survey was entertaining. Here are some things we found:

  • Almost everyone who took the survey have shopped with us! There were a select 3 of you who haven’t, and that’s okay! Now you can use your $10 gift card with us.
  • The leading color that was a favorite was blue! Purple and black came in a close second.
  • The favorite holiday was Christmas by a landslide! Speaking of, we are getting ready to make some mittens and skirts… Stay tuned for those!
  • On a scale of 1 to 5, we had you rank how important recycled options were to you and how important it was to you for USA made products. We had an average of 4.28 and 4.48! Thank you for keeping business within the U.S!
  • We noted a lot of you use Facebook, our newsletter, and our website to keep track of updates. As technology grows, green 3 is trying to keep up. You can follow us on Twitter, Pinterest, and we have a blog!

We also asked for specific feedback from each of you on what you’d like to see us make from green 3. We had an array of answers, ranging from they loved everything we had and didn’t want us to change, to some of you wanting to see specific products. Today, we’re answering your requests so you have some answers!

“I’d love to see more dresses and 3/4 length t-shirts!”

Good! We do, too! That’s why we are adding more of these products into our spring 2016 line. Stay tuned for more!

green 3 - Monkey Throw and Wild Thing Onesie (BellyBallot Prize)sm

Our junior throw matched with the Wild Thing onesie– perfect for your little ones!

“I want to see more baby clothes!”

It fills our hearts with sadness when we say that we are no longer making baby clothing. Children grow so fast out of their little onesies that it’s hard to keep up with the costs to make it affordable for you. Although we won’t be having their clothes, we will definitely keep up the junior throws!

“Can we see more cardigans/sweaters with buttons?”

Fall may seem like it’s far away, but in Wisconsin weather, we know it’s just around the corner. We are currently working on more cardigans and sweaters you can bundle up in for fall 2015.

“Have you tried making textiles?”

We currently offer some kitchen towels for purchase, but unfortunately, textiles just aren’t our forte.

“2x is my thing… Can it be your thing, too?”

We are adding 2x in the fall on all of our t-shirts! We are so happy to add onto our clothing options.

“How about petite options?”

We are looking into more extra small options for spring 2016, so stay tuned!

Green 3's doily butterfly shirt

Green 3’s doily butterfly shirt- 100% original artwork and completely hand-drawn. Can you believe that!?

“I’d love to see some original artwork!”

That is awesome! You definitely picked the right option, because all of our artwork is 100% original and hand-drawn. Read more about our in-house artist, who draws all of green 3 founder Sandy’s ideas!

“I love your t-shirts. Can I have leggings and jeans to match them with?”

We love our tees, too! Because of all that love, we are in the process of adding leggings into our spring 2016 line! 100% organic material jeans are a little trickier. Jeans require a lot of labor, and that can drive up the cost, making it not affordable for you. Jeans aren’t in our big ideas for now, but we will keep it mind.

“Oh! How about mismatching socks!?”

Oh my gosh, those are so fun! We would absolutely love to make some for you, but we don’t have the required machinery for such fine knits. We do recommend Solmate Socks though- made in the U.S. and recycled cotton!

“I love wool. Can you use that?”

TBT: Our first shirt!

Our peaceful shirt that we have hopes to bring back! Simple, cute, peaceful.

Wool is available to us, but it is also way more expensive than cotton, especially when we value organic materials. With the use of all wool, it would drive up the cost, and we’d hate to see you miss out on garments because of the cost.

“I love all things peaceful. When are peace signs coming back!?”

Did you know our first shirt made for green 3 was called “peaceful”? We are looking into bringing it back! You can read about the story of it here.

“I’d love to see dresses I could wear to work!”

At green 3, we focus on garments that are easily worn with jeans, so we understand where you’re coming from. We are adding some new dresses into our spring 2016 line, but if that isn’t quite what you’re looking for, we recommend Fair Indigo.

“Go USA! How about some Americana stuff?”

Lucky for you, we do have some Americana garments! You can find these awesome USA made and USA proud green 3 products here!

Our crew sweater found in the Americana line. Find it throughout the U.S. and online.

We at green 3 want to thank all of you for taking our survey! We appreciate customer feedback and we love to know what your ideas are so we can cater to what makes you happy. We will be sending out the $10 coupons next week! If you have any other suggestions, do not hesitate to make comments by contacting us.

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.

Local Shelter Tee Collection

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.

   

   

 

Heirloom Blankets and Throws

These heirloom quality blankets and pillows are made from reclaimed and excess materials. Each item is unique, sewn by hand and incredibly beautiful. They are part of our Aspiro program that provides job and life skill training for adults with cognitive disabilities. The Woven Blanket is 58” by 58” and features squares of incredible high end woven cloth with a soft jersey back. Both the Woven Blankets and the Woven Pillows come in Spring, Fall, and Random color combinations. The Tee Blanket features squares of super soft jersey material and measures 63” by 63”.

   

   

   

 

We hope you enjoy our new items! Tell us — which one is your favorite?
