Fleece are G-O-N-E gone!Posted January 4, 2008 by Malina
Thanks for helping me clear out some room in my merchandise storage! I am happy to report I am officially out of the AO fleeces and I am ready to move on to fabulous new products for 2008.
As usual, our company garments will be original, guide-designed, and as eco and community friendly as possible. For me, that means I comb the ends of the earth for opportunities to buy American-made shirts, use local screen printers, and find garments made from recycled, organic, or other sustainable fabrics.
For years now we’ve had hemp shirts, organic cotton tanks, and recycled fleece and guide-issue board shorts–in 2008 I’ll continue to investigate opportunities to build the most sustainable merchandise program I can put together. It won’t be perfect, but as the garment industry begins to appreciate that many consumers and retailers want products that are hip, affordable, and also responsible, I hope I’ll have even more options. For now, I’ll continue to search out the needle in the haystack–I’ll let you know what I find.
