Going Green with My Clothing

vestI read labels when I shop. Recently I was looking for a “puff” vest to wear with or without a coat in the Colorado climate. At REI I found a cool one and read the label to see what fabric was used. The label told me that the filler to make the puffs was made from recycled plastic bottles. That intrigued me as I like to “go green.”  After wearing it awhile I decided to investigate the safety of making this recycled product. I found this video on line showing just how it is done. As the site says, “judge for yourself” on the safety for the factory workers. Personally, I love the idea of recycling and the video makes it sound pretty safe for everyone… but the jury is still out. What do you think?
