Celebrate Earth Day with Loop’s organic fabric !

In honor of this symbolic day, Loop is delighted to participate in a group giveaway ! We’re partnering with talented textile designers to spread the word about how important organic textiles are to our planet.

Here’s the deal : blog hop your way from post to post, learn a little about each designer and their work, and get inspired by their patterns, colors and possibilities. simply leave a comment at each site to be entered in each giveaway for a total of 12 chances to win !

Loop thinks Earth Day is all about choice – We see it as a day to remind ourselves that it’s the sum of the choices we make in our daily lives that adds up to real change and reveals our commitment to sustainability. All of the businesses taking part in this giveaway have made the choice to stand for organic textiles, tackling the challenges of sourcing, production, pricing + merchandising in creative ways because we all believe that sustainable textile production is a necessity for this planet and its people.

I work at a Quaker school that has great interest in environmental sustainability, in fact, I'm in charge of maintaining our membership in a lot of the sustainability initiatives that we have joined. I also happen to love sewing, of which numerous kids are familiar. Instead of just recycling old clothes to refashion into new ones, I'd love to be able to create several outfits to show the kids that "crunchy" doesn't have to equal drab and that sustainable doesn't have to mean old and pilly!
