I’ve been dying to find a moment to sit down and write about this amazing company I just learned about called EARTHTEC. The brand leads the way with cutting-edge recycled and sustainable textiles, innovative fresh designs and smart manufacturing techniques. If you are looking for an eco-clothing company, you’ve found it.
I seriously wish them world dominance. I want to be able to walk into any store and see their apparel line for sale. No really. Not kidding – this company needs to go viral because not only do they make comfortable clothing that can handle any harsh element, but they have a great look and a wonderful team backing it all.
Last week, I had the opportunity to test out a few EARTHTEC products while snowshoeing in Park City, Utah. At first, when the group got together, I had on a much heavier jacket. Jim Barrett – the brand representative – told me I should reconsider my decision and opt for something lighter.
I didn’t believe him that I would stay warm wearing this soft-shell jacket. BUT I DID STAY WARM! In fact, I was almost sweating!! Then again, that might have been because I am completely out of shape. Seriously, at one point I just stopped and let the group go on without me. I saw my life flash before my eyes and was ready to let it all go. The group noticed… the difficulty… I was having shoeing up the mountain and decided to let me rest and catch my breath stop and take pictures. I stabilized and then off we went.
But I digress… The jacket provided amazing wind protection while still remaining breathable. For $99, it fits into everyone’s budget.
Besides the jacket, I tested out the Sassafras 1/4 zip fleece which I’ve worn a good 5 times since returning from Utah. It is so SOFT and light and the color just pops. You know that feeling you get when you are wrapped up in a really plush blanket? That’s what wearing this fleece feels like minus the bulk. Available in a variety of colors for $44.
And don’t get me started on these socks! Their eco-comfort socks are unbeatable and made out of recycled plastic bottles. WHAT? How is that possible!? If you have a friend that is into earth friendly products, these socks need to be placed on your list!
