We’re all busy. Between work, family and errands, who has time to devote to themselves? Sometimes we just need someone to do the work for us. When we try to live sustainably, it can be difficult to find resources that are close by – especially if we simply don’t have the time to look.
And that’s where Wear the Earth comes into play. Wear the Earth is an online boutique, selling organic, eco-friendly clothing. Run by busy mom Tiffany Parks, she took her years of retail management experience to move forward with an eco-driven website, while simultaneously raising her family.
The best part about Wear the Earth is the array of organic gear they sell And because organic fabrics are superior to conventional fabrics, you know you’re getting quality products.
Selling so much more than just clothing, Wear the Earth has something for everyone, as well as great gift options. From bedding to towels, baby items, home and body products, accessories, and yoga gear, it’s almost impossible to shop here and leave without an order.
What’s even better, is that all companies involved with Wear the Earth are handpicked to ensure their own greenness, including Fair-Trade practices to planet-friendly dyes and fabrics. Baby item are bleach-free, organic materials are used and toxins and heavy-metals are not to be seen.
Instead, fabrics are naturally dyed with low-impact Oeko-tex 100 dyes, as well as clay, and materials such as hemp, organic cotton, soy, lyocell, and bamboo are used.
We’ve had the opportunity to review one of their organic sweaters, and we can definitely see what makes it so great!
The Organic Cable Sweater is manufactured from a blend of primarily bamboo with an addition of organic cotton, a perfect mixture for comfort and warmth.
With a flattering fit, the heather grey sweater features a textured cable design running vertically to create a long silhouette. The scoop neck can flatter on its own, or complements a collared shirt for a tailored office-look.
The lightweight, semi-fitted sweater is the bamboo-trademark softness that brings comfort to a whole new level. Days of scratchy wool are left behind, when you realize that you’ll only want bamboo-based sweaters at the heart of your fall and winter wardrobe.
The full-length sleeves and long waistband are perfect for those with longer arms and torsos, but the lightweight material allows you to roll up the sleeves or tuck in the hem without appearing bulky.
In short? Gorgeous, comfortable and versatile – and great for the planet, too.
We also love to point out when companies take the extra step towards sustainability, and the crew at Wear the Earth follow suit. Their packaging and shipping is minimal, using just enough to get the job done. She also spreads the eco-word around town on living a greener life.
In addition, they are approved by Green America, a non-profit organization set out to gather economic power to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society.
Wear the Earth wears their heart on their sleeve, truly considering the environment in all that they do. From constantly re-evaluating their carbon footprint to offering accessible, organic options to consumers, we definitely recommend – and love – the goods that they offer.
