Organic Cotton Clothing Colored With Food-Waste Vegetable Dyes

Debra Redalia

These colors are made from food-waste vegetables.

I found this link to Groceries Apparel on Obakki. They make exclusive apparel for Obakki in addition to their own designs.

What I love most about Groceries Apparel is that they make 100% organic cotton clothing for men and women dyed with vegetable dyes make from food waste! And you can find clothing by food ingredient! Carrot tops, weld flowers, pomegranate, and I’m sure more to come. This is brilliants. And the colors are bright and vibrant.

"We couldn't find a dye house that shared our ethics and standards, so we started our own. Groceries Vege Dye Studio uses only non-toxic dyes including dyes made from pomegranate, carrot tops, onion skins, roots, bark, flowers and real indigo.” Visit their veggie dye studio online.

"We manufacture in our own Los Angeles, CA factory to ensure our standards are fully executed.
Vertically integrated, local, and traceable production maximizes quality, efficiency, and employee pay, and minimizes redundancy, waste and our carbon footprint.”

This all sounds so good, I would love more details…But I love these food-waste veggie dyes. I would buy a garment immediately if they made my size….

For more than 30 years we have been delving into the nature and activities of life together. Indeed, this has been and continues to be the very reason we are together. With delight, we research, explore, observe, and even wake each other up in the middle of the night to discuss how life functions and how we can function as life—even while living in the modern world. We each are different from the norm, but we are different in the same way, so we have been able to think outside of the ordinary together and find the extraordinary workings of life.
