I posted this to the general cycling forum, and haven't gotten any responses. I was thinking some of you guys & gals might be a little more hip to this kind of stuff.
Does anybody know of source for eco-friendly bike jerseys? Something like recycled PET, or sustainable materials (bamboo, wool), and made in the U.S (where I live) would be a plus too.
I found this one (http://www.atayne.com/shop/mens-gear/mens-cycling-clothing/mens-grind-cycling-jersey.html) (recycled PET & made in the U.S.A) but I was wondering what my other options might be.

They use mostly recycled merino wool and are handmade in Vancouver, BC. Cool retro designs too

May I ask why?
If it's available, perfectly functional, and easier on the environment than other products out there, then why not?
<rant>Some people (not necessarily PluperfectArson) have the notion that choosing or adopting an eco-friendly (or fair trade, etc) product or practice is making a commitment to a certain lifestyle--as if it requires them to quit their job and get rid of all their worldly possessions. I don't think that's the case. So choosing the eco-friendlier alternative (like, say, Pedro's Bio-Grease or Phil Wood Biolube) can have a reduced negative environmental impact without lowering one's quality of life. And if that's the case, then why not do it.</rant>
