Green Apparel Definition...


Green Apparel is clothing and other accessories that are designed to use organic and recycled materials, less packaging and more energy-efficient manufacturing.

How it Works...Green Apparel, Eco-clothing or, Sustainable Clothing is a hot topic in fashion circles as well as the outdoor industry. Rock star Bono started a new eco-friendly clothing line with his wife, Ali Hewson, and designer Rogan Gregory, and sustainability was a big theme of the recent London Fashion Week. But while the fashion industry is just beginning to raise its environmental consciousness, green clothing already has made major inroads in the outdoor category.



Patagonia pioneered the greening of outdoor apparel when it introduced fleece clothing made of recycled soda bottles a decade ago. Today, Timberland, the $1.6 billion outdoor company, has come out with the equivalent of nutritional labels for its shoes that tell whats inside from recycled rubber to energy used in production. Theres a growing competitive advantage for companies that take on environmental issues in a very real way and talking to consumers about it, said Betsy Blaisdell, Timberlands manager of environmental stewardship. Two types of Timberland hiking sneakers now bear the nutritional label, and by 2009, the label will be added to all 1,400 Timberland shoe styles, said Blaisdell. Timberland is now working with other brands to create a similar industry-wide label.



Companies recognize that mindset among consumers, and they are quickly churning out new product lines. This spring, Keen, the Portland, Ore., shoemaker, introduced the Ventura, a $60 sneaker that uses recycled aluminum eyelets, non-synthetic and biodegradable rubber and natural water-based glues instead of traditional adhesives deemed more toxic. The company will next roll out a hemp version of its Newport sandal and a "Hybrid.Transport" line of bags and backpacks that use aluminum buckles made from flattened factory shoe molds and zipper pulltabs made from leftover sandal trimmings.



In outdoor apparel, organic cotton and fast-growing plants like bamboo, hemp and soy are emerging as popular alternatives to traditional cotton fiber. The reasoning: one cotton t-shirt made from traditional cotton requires one-third of a pound of chemicals, which can seep into the ground and have been linked to cancer, according to the nonprofit trade group Organic Exchange. Sales of organic cotton are projected to hit $2.8 billion next year, up from $583 million today, due in part to widespread adoption by brands like Nike and Patagonia, according to the group.
