Fashion-forward Fleece Company Promotes Industry Responsibility

You love the feel of your cozy fleece jacket, but sadly, it isn't the look for a night on the town.

 

Introducing FLEECE-A-NISTA! Fabulous looking comfort is finally here.

 

Growing up in Portland, Oregon, FLEECE-A-NISTA founder Jeanne Feldkamp got acquainted with fleece early in life. But as a fashion designer, she thought something was missing: Fleece wasn’t sexy. Jeanne was determined to blend a high-fashion sensibility with the luxurious comfort, lightweight warmth, softness, and durability of fleece. She began designing pieces that are equally at home in the city or on the slopes—and FLEECE-A-NISTA was born.

 

There's only one thing that Jeanne loves more than mixing fleece and fashion – that's creating positive change through business. In addition to offering unique tops for women, FLEECE-A-NISTA, is committed to fighting climate change, minimizing their impact on the environment and promoting responsible apparel industry practices.

 

Most apparel companies throw out the fabric scraps that are left over after cutting—which adds up to millions of pounds of wasted material every year. Jeanne believes that small changes in the production process can add up to create significant change. All scrap material from FLEECE-A-NISTA is shred and used as filler inside their super-snuggly floor and throw pillows. A portion of the profits from these pillows benefits the Business Council for Peace, or Bpeace. This organization trains women in Afghanistan and Rwanda to expand their businesses, create employment, and build a peaceful future for their communities.

  • I’m curious how creative writing instructors at colleges and universities handle students who write about really disturbing things and who seem potentially dangerous to themselves and others? Are instructors privy to students’ mental health records? Do they let such students get away with violent or disturbing writing in an effort NOT to stir too much trouble? Do you become proactive in trying to help these students? Do you undergo training to deal with problem students? As a creative writing student at a university, I often see disturbing stuff brought into workshops. I’m wondering what the profs think of all this. Thanks to any answers!.

  • What’s up, yes this article is actually good and I have learned lot of things from it
    concerning blogging. thanks.
