Celebrate the Green—Made in the U.S.A.

Share |

If you love beautiful things, but also live a planet-friendly lifestyle, you may be on the quest for special items that are also green─such as recycled, upcycled, sustainable, compostable, and/or biodegradable alternatives. Can you accomplish all of this and still support American workers? Yes! In fact, more U.S. companies are “going green” than ever before, resulting in a terrific range of options for the conscientious consumer. For example:

Clothing
All USA Clothing offers a line of affordable bamboo/cotton garments that are manufactured with as small an ecological footprint as possible. Bamboo is a highly renewable grass, with natural antibacterial properties. Also, bamboo fabric “breathes” and is biodegradable.

Jewelry
Cangles creates jewelry for people of all ages from recycled aluminum beverage cans, reclaimed textiles, LPs and CDs. They also design custom bracelets for the Save the Earth Foundation, helping to fund important environmental research and education efforts.

Home Goods
White Lotus Home offers a host of luxurious, organic bedding and home goods, all handcrafted in the USA by skilled, creative artisans. The company states that, above all, their people, products and business practices are socially, politically and environmentally responsible.

    I wanted to add that I recently was gifted a clothes drying rack. It was made in the USA from a small family run business. I was very pleased with how it looks and its functionality.

    Best for me is that it helps me be greener while supporting the us economy.
