Put Organics on Your Back

Stop and think about it. The clothes you wear were likely made using terrible chemicals like pesticides that harm the environment.

But you need to wear clothes, and green, sustainable threads can be costly and hard to find in your neighborhood store.

Not anymore. You’ll can now find them at discount retailers like Michigan-based Kmart.

The retailer, along with Wal-Mart, has partnered up with Washington-based Green Source to offer organic shirts and jeans, notes The Daily Green.

Shoppers can find sustainable versions of brands like Route 66 and Faded Glory.

Apparently, The Two Marts did a trial run on sustainable fabrics last year, and sales were great.

Cheap and green. What a concept.

  1. If you’re looking for the right eco-friendly clothes to wear, INDIE PEACE is the brand for you.

    Lawton Ursrey, founder of Atlanta-based clothing line INDIE PEACE just found out his 100% certified organic t-shirt line will be featured in the upcoming Woody Harrelson movie “Zombieland.” Harrelson will be wearing different shirts from the INDIE PEACE collection in the movie and liked them so much, he ended up keeping every style. Woody shared them with pal Owen Wilson and now Owen would like to wear them in his next movie as well. To add to the good news, Lawton’s INDIE PEACE line launched in 8 different Nordstrom stores starting the last week of April. This is major news in the retail market because most major department stores have not embraced eco-friendly or sustainable clothing for men in their stores. Lawton will now lead the way for other eco-friendly men’s clothing designers to break through these barriers. On a side note, this news came at the right time. Due to the current economic climate, Lawton had to close his Atlanta office and ended up moving his business to the basement of his home. He didn’t quit though – proving that even in an economic slump, socially responsible companies are surviving in this volatile market.
