    OT sorta.. Eco-Friendly Bike Jerseys?

    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 (recycled PET & made in the U.S.A) but I was wondering what my other options might be.

    Thanks

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

    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>
