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!

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    CoolerThanMyself
    I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

    Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

    He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.
