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!


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!

It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

    I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.
