EGG

TM

ANTI-BACTERIAL & ANTI-MACROBIAL TECHNOLOGY FROM NATURE Green Apple is the only apparel company with patented EGG technology. Our Product Properties: • Anti microbial - FDA approved (#10029655) & patented Eco-GermGard stays in the garment for the life of the product. It eliminates 99.99% of all germs. This has been independently tested by the Nelson Lab in Utah & Microchem in India. • Anti bacterial - naturally inherent qualities prevent bacteria from growing on its surface. • Anti fungal - resistant to mold/yeast. • Hypo Allergenic - great for people with sensitive skin. Garments do not casue reactions to skin and are highly breathable. • Thermodynamic - warmer in cooler climates & cooler in warmer environments. • UV Protection - bamboo fiber has scored above 90% in both UVA & UVB block scales. • Superior Moisture Absorbency - wicks away water/perspiration from the body 34 times faster than cotton. • Sustainable & Renewable - harvested from a natural material with no impact to the environment, bamboo is capable of regeneration without replanting, creating a carbon negative growth cycle. • Odor resistant - neutralizes odor causing bacteria that lives on human skin. • Biodegradable - our products will fully biodegrade in nature in approximately two months. Biodegradable qualities were tested by SGS Lab in Hong Kong.

greenappleactive.com Green Apple Founder Cristofer Smith Bio: Over the past nineteen years, veteran athletic designer Cristofer Smith has successfully pioneered many athletic brands, winning several international design awards for his unique fusion of comfort and style. In 2004, Cristofer turned his attention and focus to the eco industry, where his passion for fashion and respect for health and the environment merged to create a winning combination of style, luxury and sustainability. Cristofer founded the company Dream Seeker Inc. with the vision to inovate and create new products for the active lifestyle arena while keeping in harmony with our planet’s natural resources and a healthy way of life. Dream Seeker developed two brand names to be used in the organic active apparel marketplace. Knowing that what you put on your skin is just as important as what you put in your body, Green Apple was created to set the standard for the next generation of eco-active wear. After many travels and extensive studies, Cristofer developed the first ever certified organic bamboo active apparel. Bamboo was the most viable textile to mimic the technical abilities of petrol-chemical textiles (nylon & poly) used in nearly all athletic apparel, without all of the negative health side-effects or the harmful environmental impact. In addition to being the most cost effective for the consumer, bamboo also proved to be the overall winner environmentally, as one of the world's fastest growing plants. Bamboo is quickly becoming a very popular choice for both the athletic and contemporary apparel marketplace because of the incredibly luxurious soft and silky hand feel, along with its naturally occuring technical properties.

Green Apple’s Vision:

greenappleactive.com

At Green Apple, we are on a mission to prove that luxurious, fashionable apparel can be created with both health and sustainabliity in mind. Our vision is to create a better, more eco-friendly alternative to all the off the chemical filled synthetic fabrics that flood the marketplace, and also to educate consumers about the importance of wearing eco-friendly fibers; for the body & for the planet. Scientists will tell you that what goes on your skin also absorbs into your body, so garments worn next to the skin should be as pure and non-toxic as possible. Green Apple uses only certified organic bamboo and certified organic cotton in all of our apparel. In addition to the lowest impact dyes, inks and most eco-friendly printing methods available, we are constantly researching and testing new ways to make our products healthier and “greener” without compromising style, quality or fit. This is our constant commitment to improving the health of our bodies & and of our environment. Another major factor in building a successful brand in today’s global marketplace is to follow through with every detail in order to manifest the true vision of the brand. This is a very important factor to us, & we are always striving to provide more valueable information to our customer and to educate them on the many benefits of purchasing an organic product. You can find this information updated periodically on our web site.

Our Eco Commitment: We are so committed to being environmentally friendly that all of our branding and packaging materials (down to the hang tag strings) are also made from natural fibers, recycled materials, and printed with low impact soy inks. To ensure that all Green Apple prducts meet the highest level of health, environmental, safety, and Fair Trade standards, we are independently certified by Oeko-Tex, OCIA, GOTS, SKAL Intl. and WRAP. We stand behind our commitment to being a GREEN brand, and we are very happy to be a leader in this rapidly growing ECO movement! *All of our GA products can be tracked from the farming to the finished garment, we are GOTS certified in growing, spinning, weaving, & dying. *In dyeing, we strictly use only low-impact environmental dyes, as well as using a closed loop system in our processing to conserve water and prevent any chemicals from polluting. This is beneficial to our environment, skin and well being. *All of our printing is completely eco-friendly, plastisol-free, and done with only water-based inks. Our Embroidery is done with rayon thread which comes from a tree plup fiber and is fully bio-degradable. *All of our branding (hang tags & packaging) is done on 100% recycled and 50% post-compost paper with soy ink and then connected to each garment with bamboo or eco-friendly rope. No plastic! *Beginning in 2010, with a great deal of research, we are implementing the latest technology in packaging, called Bio-Plastic. This material will break up, micro-fragment, & finally allow the micro-organism in the natural environment to complete the process of biodegradation. This will be done with zero effect on our landfills, beaches, & the environment. The end products are water, carbon dioxide, and bio-mass, all of which are harmless to the envoronment.
