This Holiday Give the Gift of Green

12/04/2012 - 12:00am

‘Tis the season of giving. Shoppers bustle from store to store seeking the best deals and the perfect items for everyone on their Nice List. The throngs of shoppers might be good for business, but sometimes the holiday season is bad for Mother Earth. Increased travel means more fossil fuel pollution, factory made gifts can lead to extraneous packaging and waste. This year, when you’re stocking your shelves with holiday items, remember that Green is truly the color of the season.

It’s true that it is better to give than receive. Seeing the joy on someone’s face when they open the perfect present is what the holiday season is all about. And if you can give that gift without breaking the bank, then it will be a merry season for all.

Everyone loves a great design. Be it a favorite band, cartoon character or political statement, people love the idea of expressing themselves through their apparel. But be careful what you buy.

Children's Apparel Network fleece hoodies were recalled from Target stores because their designs contained traces of lead. The hazardous material has yet to cause any reported problems, but caused a scare for all those shopping for children's apparel.

September is back to school month for many families in the DC area. Kids are busy earning good grades and signing up for extracurricular activities, which means that parents will need to invest in some customized apparel.

Sports teams, after-school clubs and community groups are all part of student life. To add a sense of solidarity to scholastic activities, consider creating custom t-shirts and bags for your favorite students’ groups.

One of the best parts of the green movement is the commitment to buying local. With their minds on carbon footprints and supporting local business, Alexandria residents have been favoring Farmers’ Markets for their shopping.

At the Ballston BID and FRESHFARM Markets, shoppers can pick up locally grown produce, meats, crafts and more every Thursday. But how do you get it home without using an environmentally unfriendly plastic bag?

Eco-Friendly Clothing Goes Mainstream Retail and BLT Shirt Printers were Ahead of the Trend!

With April upon us and the celebration of Earth Day, we are keenly focused on the issue of being eco-friendly. We’ve recently written about the importance of recycling, of using organic materials, and promoting the use of reusable grocery bags. We even have a special FREE embroidery offer for all customers who place orders in April. We put a lot of effort into providing eco-friendly choices to our customers who order custom screen printed and embroidered branded apparel, company uniforms, and promotional items. So we were thrilled to read about more eco-friendly clothing hitting the market and we’re talking a huge, mainstream retailer going eco-friendly and high-fashion!

While it may be fashionable to be “green” in March due to St. Patrick’s Day, BLT Shirt Printers is going “Green” in April! Our great city of Alexandria, where we work and live, is a leader among our Nation’s communities in the e­fforts to be eco-friendly. Alexandria has hybrid trollies running on King Street, our City Hall has a “vegetative green” roof on its courtyard structures, and our traffic lights are LED’s. So while our town is going green, we are too, and we have special o­ffers in April for our Green –Loving customers!

The Fighting Friars wear a variety of shirt styles on and off the field of play.
