This Father's Day, get the (eco-friendly) dad-with-everything a recycled suit. Bagir's "Ecogir" suit, constructed of wool and about 30 recycled PET bottles picked up in Japan, will be available for $200 at Sears' US stores. "Bagir's suits will also be the first in the world to carry a carbon footprint label. [It] will help educate consumers to let them know how much greenhouse gas causing carbon dioxide emissions, or its equivalent, was created during the manufacturing and shipping process." This is in addition to Sears' recent news of partnership with LL Cool J to release a capsule collection as a "boost for the store's softer side." Uh huh. [Treehugger]
