Trove “Green” Clothing Review
With Earth Day coming up soon (and every day should be Earth Day these days!), what better way for all you fashionistas out there to show off your eco-friendliness through stylish, “green” clothing?
Trove is a brand-new clothing line created by GF/BF design team Carly Mandelbaum and Jesse Burnett. Not only are these fabulous fashions made of 100% organic cotton, they’re also priced right (from $65 to $160), totally wearable and totally green!
Trove designs use only the softest-feeling, highest-quality, 100% organic cotton. Take your pick from graphic tees, hoodies, sweats, tanks and button-down blazers.
You’ll be able to easily recognize Trove’s eco-friendly pieces by the label’s signature peace signs, heart graphics and nature images, which are printed on the brand’s lightweight tees and streamlined hoodies and pants.
Want more proof Trove is truly green? Well, when the designers started creating the line they decided they really didn’t want to use any materials that were manufactured using any chemicals or pesticides. The result? Trove uses only organic fabrics as a way of enacting positive change through action.
Not only does Trove use 100% organic cotton in all its designs, the company’s headquarters are in the same city as its factory and just five hours from where its fabric is knit, which means shipping is kept to a minimum and Trove does everything it can to keep its carbon footprint low.
In addition, Trove’s hangtags, business cards and lookbooks are all printed on 100% recycled paper; the company also produces very little paper waste and its employees rely heavily on their cell phones and e-mails instead of paper for most inter-office communication. Also, Trove makes sure its fabric is cut in such a way that makes the best possible use of the fabric.
Even the zippers you’ll find on Trove’s clothing are enviro-friendly; they’re all AZO dye free and contain extremely low levels of PVC and cadmium.
In future collections, Trove will be looking to using recycled polyester as well as introducing a footwear line: Tkees.
