Did you know that even cotton can be recycled? Well, in a manner of speaking at least. Jen, of DivaTribe can explain things much better: "reclaimed cotton fiber from the clothing and textile industries [is] cotton [that was] taken from the cutting room floor and spun into an 8-ply yarn. [So basically,] perfectly good, brand new fibers that would have otherwise gone to the landfill are transformed into a [wonderful] yarn." And, Jen has definitely put that yarn to good use with this hand crocheted poncho:
Available in three sizes and many different colors, this reclaimed drape can add some color to your wardrobe and allow you some Earth Day bragging rights. Plus, Diva Tribe Boutique is a member of 1% for the Planet, an awesome coalition that Yvon Chouinard (the big wig at my day job, Patagonia) started, that puts 1% of the money you spend back into protecting the environment.
So, comon' everybody- hop on the socially conscious, environmentally friendly bandwagon, it's fun! Woo!
