The official debut of the GO! (Transformer) Jackets for toddlers!

GO! – the original backpack style jacket made from a new generation of recycled fabric and designed specifically for toddlers.

(Seattle, Washington, November 1, 2007) Seattle based Global Sustaining Equity Management, LLC today announced the official launch of “Our GlobO,” a platform for products inspired by the values of stewardship, responsibility, and sustainability.

Our GlobO is proud to present the original “GO! Jacket” for toddlers on the go. This versatile jacket is designed specially for toddlers and made from a new generation of recycled fabric. This jacket is among the first in the world to use Eco CIRCLE® fabric from Teijin in Japan and RePET® that is made by Libolon in Taiwan. Both of these fabrics are intended to be recycled again and again thus saving resources, energy, and carbon emissions.

The GO! Jacket combines function with style. Toddlers will love to wear and carry a jacket that converts into a backpack mode in seconds, with just enough room for small toys and snacks. Pre-schoolers will no longer need to regard carrying coats as a chore, and they will be happy bearing their own load just as they see big kids do. The jacket is wind and water resistant, and comes in six vibrant colors.

Each jacket is individually numbered so as to further the principles of stewardship and reuse by making it possible to track and share the life of the jacket.

The GO! Jacket is available through preferred community partners listed at In addition to creating partnership programs with local schools and child care centers, Our Globo is donating a portion of sales proceeds to the Sustainable Schools Initiative,

“Creating Eco-Friendly Products and Advancing Sustainability”

Born from our concern for the diminishing natural resources available for future generations, a group of friends from diverse cultures and walks of life have joined together to form Our GlobO. We include Grandpa John and Grandma Nancy from their retirement, Uncle Nate from the financial industry, Grandpa Milt from his corporate world, Grandma Diane from her artistic roots, Grandpa Rick from the NGO world, father Stan from the entrepreneur domain, and mother Charlene from the fashion sector. Each of us seeks to create products and solutions that will contribute in a small way to our globe’s sustainable growth.

Over months of brainstorming sessions and countless cups of coffee, our ranks grew and friendships deepened. Our convictions intensified, and we agreed on a unified mission; to create useful, sustainable, and especially cool solutions for our community and future generations.

The GO! Jacket is our first creation based upon its practical use for our children and grandchildren. Under our theme of resource stewardship, we have selected bamboo and other sensible, renewable materials to combine with recycled polyester as the foundation of our apparel line.

We are the first to admit that we do not have perfectly “sustainable” solutions. We see current choices as “transition strategies.” Price, functionality, and availability are all factors. To live wisely, Our GlobO seeks to explore, learn, and engage with others as we travel toward a sustaining and hopeful future for current and upcoming generations.

We feel we are at the beginning of a long and exciting journey. We seek to combine our business experiences with deep personal values in order to open another positive path leading to a sustaining future. Our simple goal is to engage with fellow travelers to design and produce products that are socially, environmentally, and economically positive. Along our journey, we are looking for the wisest business opportunities, partners, and suppliers. It is indeed an exciting exploration, and we are discovering and learning more each day. Thank you to all who have shared their knowledge and experience!
