Upcycled Baby Clothing

Take a minute and think about a special memory.

What pops up in your mind? We bet you can remember what you were wearing. We, at Babee Greens, appreciate how clothes can be tied to a memory and we believe memories are made to be shared – especially with your little one!

So, what if there was a way to pass on your favorite memories to the next generation of memory makers? At Babee Greens, we offer you that opportunity through upcycled baby clothing.

Whether it is grandpa’s old sweater, your college Greek letters, one of those cozy team logo sweatshirts, or that old concert t-shirt that always makes you smile – we can take those precious keepsakes, sprinkle them with some pro-level upcycling, and create a brand new piece of clothing for your little one.

All of our clothes are handcrafted with love to make your pre-loved garments even more special. The best part? You and your little one both end up making your own little positive impact on the planet!


How it Works

Our new service for upcycled clothing is focused on sustainability, cost-effectiveness, and crafting high-quality handmade baby apparel. Here’s how our 5-step service process works:

  • Step 1: You fill out a form on our website. Next, our staff reviews your submission to determine if your garments are suitable for upcycling.
  • Step 2: We connect with you and determine the number of pieces we need based on the baby clothing you’d like us to make. We then share a shipping label with you so you can send your original garments to us.
  • Step 3: You complete the purchase and ship the original items to our team.
  • Step 4: We receive the package and our in-house sewing team gets to work creating your one-of-a-kind apparel.
  • Step 5: We ship the brand-new upcycled baby items back to you within 10 days.

Types of Upcycled Apparel Your Little One Can Have

Simply put, upcycling is when you repurpose or refurbish a product to create a material of higher value or quality. As the world fights climate change, more and more people continue to embrace the concept of upcycling.
You can see upcycling as a way of breathing new life into old materials. Upcycling helps achieve two goals in one go – it re-creates a brand-new piece of clothing from something you couldn’t (or didn’t want to use) and keeps the planet happy.
When you ship your old clothes to Babee Greens, we upcycle them to create diaper covers, shorts, pants, hats, and booties! 


How Upcycling Helps the Environment

A World Economic Forum reveals that the textile and fashion industry is the 3rd largest contributor of emissions worldwide, accounting for 5% of all emissions across the globe!

Each year, textile production produces an astonishing 1.2 billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions. To put things in perspective, this amount of emissions is more than what maritime shipping and all international flights (combined) generate! Given the amount of harm manufacturing and disposing of textiles does to the environment, what can be done – on an individual level – to reduce it? Upcycling is one of the many answers.

To begin with, upcycling substantially lowers the amount of waste that gets tossed in landfills each year. This lowers the CO2 emissions while stretching the lifespan of fabrics. Upcycling also reduces the need to produce raw materials which in turn brings down the amount of greenhouse gases, water pollution, and air pollution! Upcycling makes way for a magical circular economy where materials get transformed into something beautiful instead of turning into waste.

Upcycled clothing is also a great way to pass on and preserve items that carry sentimental value. An upcycled piece of your own clothing is priceless in its own way – it’s a piece with a one-of-a-kind touch that cannot be re-creating ever again!

Please note: Because we are a small manufacturer still working with our hands, we are able to do a great deal of customized work. However, not every material will be suitable for upcycling, and we will be limited by the amount of material supplied. Our staff will review your submission and be in touch with any questions, comments, or concerns. We look forward to working with you!
