Landfills received 10.5 million tons of MSW textiles in 2015.
This was 7.6 percent of all MSW landfilled.
We are very fortunate here at Thavin & Marcob to have found some amazing products
that help with the textile waste problem that we currently face.
Here are 5 gift ideas that have meaning and that will help to make a difference.
Our Fireside throw is made out of recycled acrylic material.
This Large throw is perfect for a top cover on a Full/Queen size bed. It's thick enough to feel like a wool blanket. However it doesn't give the scratchy feeling that wool does. This is one of my absolute favorites mainly because of its thickness as well as its durability. Mine is my best companion when I find myself on an adventure to the beach, the mountains, or to the park.
FAIR TRADE THROW
Our Fair Trade Throw is also a fantastic throw blanket to give out this gift giving season.
NO WASTE MANUFACTURING
We have newly uncovered the marvelous wonders of No Waste Manufacturing!
No waste manufacturing is not only fantastic for our landfills,
but it also creates amazing everyday fashion wear!
PINE TREE MEN'S LONG SLEEVE TEE
This gem is beyond soft. Our team members swears this right here is the ultimate luxury tee!
The long sleeve tee-shirt is a polyester/cotton blend, which helps to create an obnoxiously comfortable feeling. Let's not forget about the fact that this gem is cut and sewn in a zero-waste facility. Our Pine Tree Men's Long Sleeve Tee features a contemporary fit, the softness of a tri-blend, but with the durability of cotton.
ROAM LONG SLEEVE MEN'S TEE
I love the mountains. I feel completely free when I'm in the mountains. The beauty that surrounds me is always beyond words which is why I love this ROAM tee. It is extremely lightweight, breathable and perfect for breaking a sweat in. This tee is a polyester/cotton blend and is cut plus sewn in a zero-waste facility.
Seagulls Slouchy Pullover
I live near the water so seagulls are never too far out of view. I love this shirt because every time I see the repurposed ink used to hand paint the seagulls onto the shirt I can't help, but to smile because even though they may squawk loudly and poop on my car. I still adore and appreciate every bit and nature and water to be in a world where we look out for there best interest0 Which this shirt helps to achieve for the fact it is happily Environmentally Friendly. .

Fierce Fabric Bag

It's Fair Trade, crafted by hand of recycled materials, signed with the name of your seamstress, Ethically Made, one of a kind, is from a No Waste Manufacturer, and is Environmentally Friendly.

Following the same beautiful value and meaning as the gift 8. Our Taking It Casual pants are a real double take showstopper. Why feel the need to choose office fashion over comfy lounge wear. When these pants so effortlessly help you to achieve a healthy balance.
My last gift idea is one I recently gifted myself. I just couldn't hold back on not adding the worlds most perfect little black dress into my wardrobe. It has all of the meaning and value that one could ever want. Our SweatShirt Dress is Ethically Made, Environmentally Friendly, Fair Trade, hand crafted with recycled materials, Signed with the name of its seamstress, and is one of a kind. This dress has all of this meaning buried beneath its stitching. However on the surface it is as comfortable as rocking a giant sweatshirt, but embodies the sexy chic appeal of that perfect little black dress that can never do you any wrong.
This season give something with a little meaning.
