We are so excited to have launched NUGsWear. We discovered these awesome sweats and tees that perfectly fit with our desire to encourage more people to get growing!
Now you need not worry what to wear in the garden, on the allotment or just hanging out with friends and family. These tops make a statement and they spread the gardening love around like muck!
First up we have KALE this top is popular on the healthy lifestyle scene. Branded as a 'super-food it' has also become increasing popular to grow Kale. We have found curly Kale easy to grow in our small garden in south London and we love using it in cooking and juices. One cup of kale has only 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 0 grams of fat. It is great for aiding in digestion and elimination with its great fiber content. It’s also filled with so many nutrients, vitamins, folate and magnesium.
Next up we have BEET for Betroot. Another awesome veg. It's our first year growing Beetroot and we choose a multicoloured variety so expect some vibrant pics over on the Instagram feed. Beetroot is a good source of iron and folate. It also contains nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants (notably betacyanin).
We have to give a big shoutout to COCONUTS - we make our pots from them. Our sustainability range uses Coir - The coconut husk. A totally sustainable resource which offers a great eco-friendly alternative to plastic pots (500 million of which end up in landfill each year in the UK alone). There's too much plastic in the world and we do not want to be adding to it. You might be a fan of Coconut Water or Coconut Oil too. Seriously the mighty Coconut cannot get enough praise as far as we're concerned. Also it's quite amusing having Coconuts across your chest.
Hopefully you know by now we're all about Organic Gardening. This fab ORGANIC ENERGY top encapsulates that vibe too. We do not use any toxic products in our garden. We care too much about the wildlife, pets and our kids that play in it.
And finally, for now, this ones for all the ladies, I mean goddesses. We absolutely love this GREEN GODDESS Tee. We are all about growing something green and thinking green in terms of the environment.
