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!

    You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

    I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!

    If you don't think that you'll be in a safe situation (for example, your parents try to kick you out, or hurt you physically or emotionally) than you should definitely wait to tell them. I think you'll know when the time is right. We can't tell you how they'll react, but I bet you can sort of figure it out from how they feel and act about these topics.  Remember, you are not obligated to tell anybody at all. It's personal. Wait until you're for sure ready to tell them. And when you do, tell them the way in which it's easiest. Get your point across, offer resources, reassurance, and give them time.

    Hey guys, so I do kinda have a personal issue, but I need to tell my family about it. Truth is, I'm not even sure how they'll even react. Very few of my friends know, only the ones I trust anyway... I'm gay. Or at least bisexual. I kinda had a thing for girls, but that was a long time ago. I think I'm fully gay. I have a very supportive boyfriend, who loves me with all his heart. But that's not what it's about; it's actually coming out to my family, whom I know some of them are quite homophobic. Homophobia runs in my family. Sorta...  It makes my stomach turn when I think about it. I sometimes look into the mirror, look at myself and think if my conscience suddenly made me decide I was gay, or if I was born with it. Science tells us that we are born that way, due to lack of man chemicals entering a boys brain when in development. I feel like I've chosen it (even though I know deep inside I haven't) to be gay, probably because of my family almost forcing me into getting a girlfriend and such. I come from a Catholic family, to make things even worse. I'm like the only practising person in my family, but somehow I feel that they'll use my Faith against me if I come out.  So, should I just wait until I'm older? How do I know when the time is right? How will they even react? How should I even say it?  Please help!
