      Love Your Leftovers

      Love Your Leftovers

      One of our goals for 2021 is to Continue to Grow Sustainability Efforts. So far we’ve introduced buttons, labels, drawcords, twill tape and packaging made from recycled plastic. We have also introduced a line of garments created from remnant fabric diverting waste from landfills – our ladies rib tee, rib tank and rib cardigan are all created from scrap fabric. We added zippers to the assortment of components using recycled plastics. We will also continue to expand our assortment of garments made of eco-triblend fabric diverting more plastic from landfills. Plus, we are reusing boxes that originate in Haiti.


      This week, we are reflecting on leftovers but we’re not talking about turkey. Nope, we’re talking about overly loved tees from yesterday. According to Eco-Stylist, three out of every five fast fashion pieces end up in the trash. Your clothes that you have loved and cherished to the point of no return deserves better and so does the planet. Turn your leftovers into delicious fashion that you can cherish all over again.

      No Waste November: The Art of Giving Sustainability

      No Waste November: The Art of Giving Sustainability

      One of our goals for 2021 is to Continue to Grow Sustainability Efforts. This November, we are reflecting on our commitment to reducing waste. Our staff will be participating all month long in weekly challenges so that we can incorporate the cultivation of environmental stewardship (Fair Trade Federation Principle #8) into our daily lives. This week we’re focused on gifting well so that your gifts last for years to come.


      A gift is a physical token memorializing a moment, experience, or feeling. How do we sustainably express our gratitude and care to our loved ones this holiday season? Here’s some things to consider when shopping for gifts this holiday season.

        

      Don’t Be Afraid To Give A Piece of Yourself 

      Holiday Gift Idea 

      Make it personal. The moments you have shared with this person are definitely worth celebrating. Inside jokes, little moments, shared milestones, trips together, these memories are gifts waiting to be wrapped. Creating a time capsule in a keepsake box or tote can really make a person feel cherished. 

           

      Know Your Person

      Stylishly Shelby
      Pay attention to the other person’s aesthetics. Their social media must be full with things they like. They might even have a wishlist posted somewhere. Are they a fair trade fashion enthusiast but you don’t know their size? Easy! You don’t have to be awkward to obtain information but you might have to be sneaky. Ask mutual friends if they know or ask someone of similar stature what their size is. Most people will be happy to help you out but when in doubt, go for something cozy. Something relaxing like a hoodie or fleece crew can be versatile and offer an easy fit that can give you flexibility in terms of sizing.

       

      Be Open

      Friendship

      If all seems lost, be open. Ask your person, “Hey I would really love to give you something like ____ for the holiday season. Would that be something you would enjoy?” You don’t have to be super specific but communication will ensure the what you get will be enjoyed for a long time. Remember, open and honest friendships are a gift all in itself. 

       

      No Waste November

      Do you know someone who likes super soft clothes that make you feel good AND makes a positive impact? We’ve got you covered. Shop GOEX Apparel through the month of November and save 20% on all rib garments. That’s right! Every garment crafted from remnant fabric that would otherwise be tossed aside, is on sale. Shopping triblend? Our triblend rib garments actually divert waste from landfills twice – first the plastic bottles used in the fabric and then the rib fabric again when we use the remnants.

      No Waste November: Your Unique Closet

      No Waste November:  Your Unique Closet

      One of our goals for 2021 is to Continue to Grow Sustainability Efforts. So far we’ve introduced buttons, labels, drawcords, twill tape and packaging made from recycled plastic. We have also introduced a line of garments created from remnant fabric diverting waste from landfills – our ladies rib tee, rib tank and rib cardigan are all created from scrap fabric.

      This November, we are reflecting on our commitment to reducing waste. We will be highlighting sustainability all month long so that we can further instill the cultivation of environmental stewardship (Fair Trade Federation Principle #8) into our daily lives. 


      This week is all about loving what's in our closet. As you can imagine, we at GOEX Apparel staff love our eco-friendly garments as much as you do. Some days we’ll come to the office and find we’re all wearing the same garments. Sometimes in the same color! 


      The beautiful thing about working at GOEX Apparel is that although we all appreciate the same feel good/do good garments, we all have very unique individual styles. Here's how our staff like to style our ladies eco-triblend drop hem v-neck pocket tee

      Make Every Purchase Count

      Your personality oozes into your style and we empower you to try new things. No Waste November doesn’t necessarily mean, “Absolutely no purchases.” It means make your purchases count. If you see something that makes you feel good (and makes the world better) then by all means make it happen - just don’t forget about the fabulous potential already in your closet. 

      Explore and experiment with color, placement, and style. Mixing your basic staples with innovative and outspoken patterns can inspire a cardigan or dapper a fleece crew
