Today I heard about a neat company almost right in my back yard, they are called Dirtball. This company is located in Hickory, NC and produces clothing from recycled cotton scraps and recycled plastic water bottles. They are also 100% manufactured here in the USA and uses 100% recycled materials. What struck me about them was that they had an innovative product that looked good and American made for quite reasonable prices. It certainly isn’t going to beat out an Old Navy, but in many cases we are talking $10-$20 more for something that is better quality, sustainable, and ethically made.
I don’t have any connection with them other than I find it interesting, they have a kick starter to launch their new jeans.
