As part of Earth Week, we’ve decided to dedicate this Threads entry to clothing stores in the Milwaukee area that support and sell eco-friendly clothing. These stores contribute to a socially responsible trend that is popping up here and around the nation. So when you’re out shopping this weekend, why not give a little love back to Mother Earth?
Future Green This Bay View store not only sells organic clothing, but contains bed, bath and body products as well as home décor. They specialize in organic, fair trade and re-created items. Get something for yourself and your home!
Olive Organic This unique store offers clothing, personal care items and home products with a philosophy of shopping organic without sacrificing quality, style or taste. Join this store in their efforts to decrease the negative effects on the earth.
Bella & Boo Organics Specializing in children’s and baby’s clothing, Bella & Boo offers parents some peace of mind knowing that here only natural and organic fibers will touch baby’s bottom. There are some cool eco-friendly grabs for mom too!
Orchard Street Press Founded by a Bay View couple in 2007, OSP is a printing and graphic design company that prints apparel, accessories, patches, posters and much more. They use sustainable materials like water-based inks and soy cleaners that are free of solvents and biodegradable to boot.
Madam Chino’s Look Nook Designer Vanessa Andrew uses 100 percent recycled materials for all of her Madam Chino designs — everything from t-shirt dresses to luxe fall coats, day planners and accessories. She also sells “you-torials” that offer step-by-step instructions for how to make your own clothes out of re-purposed fabrics. Check TCD’s 5Q with the designer.
Happy Earth Week!
