“Fashion and sustainability go hand-in-hand, we understand that every action we take today has an impact on tomorrow. This is why we are committed to using sustainably-sourced, eco-friendly fibers in every product we make, allowing you to embrace your individuality without compromising your earth-friendly principles.” – Founders of Solmate Socks
1. Tartan Blanket Co. | Sustainable Wool Scarves from Scotland
Tartan Blanket Co. is back on our list for the second year in a row, and its no wonder why! Their Recycled Wool Blankets and Scarves are sustainably woven, beautifully designed, and their mission to give back with every purchase makes TBCo one of our top choices for gift giving.
Benefits of wool blankets and scarves? Naturally breathable, insulating, hypoallergenic, temperature regulating, moisture wicking, odor resistant, recyclable, biodegradable, sustainable (and did we mention soft) TBCo’s recycled wool is made from 100% recycled fibers and turns preloved into reloved. At least 70% is woven from recycled wool, and the remaining percentage comes from man made recycled fibers that would otherwise end up in landfill. Cozy up with classic tartan patterns or rich colors that define the cool Fall + Winter season. 1% of every purchase you make with TBCo. will go to charities helping protect the environment, and 1% will go to charities and community projects around the world to help those in need. This means that each time you choose to buy from TBCo, you are also choosing to give to others.
2. Dooeys | Plant based + Ethically Made House Slipper
Dooeys are stylish indoor shoes — also known as slipshoes and built for all-day comfort. Designed in Amsterdam and made in Portugal with plant-based and recycled materials like apple leather, sugarcane soles, and recycled plastic, these cozy and supportive house slippers are ethically produced in small batches and offer free carbon-neutral shipping on every order. The slipshoes are cozy, lightweight, and perfect for modern home life with sustainability at the forefront. Dooeys House Loafers & House Mules are the perfect holiday gift for anyone looking for stylish, cozy and supportive slippers they can wear around the house.
Solmate is known for their high-quality, whimsically mismatched (but coordinated) sock designs woven from recycled cotton yarns made from remnants from production scraps and used clothing to knit their products. While these scraps would normally go into a landfill, their collaboration with RecoverTex, uses an Upcycling System that turns regular textile waste into quality, upcycled yarns. These remnants are re-spun into their yarns, without adding any additional dyes or colors in this process, keeping them as “clean” as possible. We love Solmates comfy socks for Adults, kids and toddlers! In addition, Solmate has been donating socks for the past 20 years to various charity groups across the US, including family services organizations, refugee centers and homeless shelters. With every pair of Solmate Socks purchased, we are saving 2.24 lbs of Co2, 2.64 sq. feet of landfills and 324 gallons of water!
