How To Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle With Clothes

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle–a phrase that everyone has heard and understands, but not one that enough people take action on. Tennessee Hippie aims to change the way the world thinks about clothing with our going green lineup of clothes, jewelry, home decor, and bath products.

Our products are perfect for the hippie in all of us, and you’ll feel better about what you’re wearing knowing it’s coming from a source that cares about the planet we live on.


The first R of waste management–reduce. Its goal is to make a conscious effort at generating less trash every day. This means that no part of our material that we use to make our products goes unused. Ball bearings at the end of guitar strings get repurposed into something else, leftover macrame from purses and belts gets collected and used for coasters, and most of the material we use is organic so anything that needs to get thrown away isn’t unnecessary waste.


Of course, it’s impossible to only use organic, biodegradable material in our lives–so why not just reuse it?

Any time we receive packaging supplies for something we order–cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, paper–it simply gets reused to ship our products to you! That’s why when you order something from us, the packaging will always be different, but make no mistake: it’s uniquely Tennessee Hippie, and you can reuse the packaging we send to you, too!


The most familiar R and the most important to us, recycle. With so many of our products recycling things like broken guitar strings, ball bearings, leftover macrame, crayons, and more, you’re almost guaranteed that when you buy from Tennessee Hippie you’re helping to recycle an item that would otherwise be useless.

All of our candles are made from recycled wax, crayons are melted down and re-molded to create our crayons, and jewelry is made with guitar strings that would be trash if not recycled into an earring or a necklace. No material used for macrame goes unused either–if we’ve got just a little bit left over after making a purse, it turns into a coaster.

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle with Tennessee Hippie and our collection of stylish and environmentally friendly products for the hippie in all of us!
