Tell us about your business.

Sandy Martin is the founder and president of green 3. Sandy grew up in the rural Midwest, dreaming of brighter lights and bigger cities. After graduating from high school, Sandy left small town life behind & began an education and career that would take her to Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. Her expertise in product development was eclipsed only by her love of family. Still shy of the age of 40, and at the height of her corporate career, Sandy decided to "retire" and dedicate herself to being the best mom she could be.In between soccer games, parent-teacher conferences, and volunteer work, Sandy kept one eye on the ever changing feminine apparel marketplace. Personally frustrated by designers who lacked imagination, retailers who didn't understand fit, and manufacturers who valued a nickel more than the environment and communities they operated in, Sandy decided to re-enter the game with a women’s company of her own. In 2006 Sandy was joined at green 3 by her husband, Jim
