Trove “Green” Clothing Review

Trove Clothing Company

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!


Cotton Collection

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.


Green Gear

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.


Eco-Friendly Zippers

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.


Future Fashions

In future collections, Trove will be looking to using recycled polyester as well as introducing a footwear line: Tkees.


Star Sightings

Trove has been spotted on fashionable and environmentally friendly celebrities like Ashley Tisdale, Liv Tyler, Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, Rachael McAdams, Mena Suvari, Olivia Wilde and Shenae Grimes!

No seriously, she doesn't have any friends cause she's a bully and no one likes to be friends with a bully...You should tell your best friend that she NEEDS to change her attitude!

You're my friend.Is something wrong like family issues?Questions like that are good because there may be a reason for bullying. She could be suffering from depression, or is confused or lonely. Just talk to her. Have a discussion with her. Also, you should talk to other people. Ask them why they aren't friends with your best friend. Then maybe, after they tell you what they don't like about her, you can go back to your best friend and tell her the things she needs to improve on. Also, if necessary, tell an adult like your mom, a teacher, consular, or her mom.Whatever you think will solve this conflict between you and your best friend well... just go for it. But think about the outcome too.Hope I helped, I might add some tips and suggestions to you. :3  your right and the only reason I have put up with her this long is because her dad died but I cant stand her anymore so but seriously I feel like there is another reason bcuz she has had people confront her saying "u know what I have put up wit this for a while and I have told u to stop and u don't listen and I know your dad died but that doesn't mean u can treat people like that "  but she still does it and for the past 3 yrs. I have put up with it but not anymore I will talk to her about it. Thanks.

    You NEED to tell your parents or HER parents about her attitude, this is abuse from your OWN best friend! Tell an adult, don't be afraid, it's not even SILLY to tell an adult, this is serious, she is HURTING you! Tell someone before things get out of hand and she REALLY hurts you! D=

Thanks I actually might try that but she is really stubborn and will not take no for an answer I have tried just ignoring her but he will kick, hit, or punch me to get attention. my parents also don't like her bcuz she is bossy. I also have to go to summer camp with her for the next 2 weeks and w have to be buddies for it so i think i might die
