Known for its out-of-this-world softness and the fact that it’s made from recycled plastic bottles, Earthtec apparel has finally returned to its roots in downtown Portsmouth.

Located at 76 Congress Street right in the heart of Market Square’s main retail district, Earthtec's new store is focusing on its own brand of apparel, including jackets, pullovers, hoodies, blankets, and socks. And if you can take your eyes off the colorful clothing inside the store that seems to beckon patrons, the store itself is an attraction to downtown’s many visitors.

Befitting a company that’s known for outdoor clothing, a rustic yet modern look dominates the décor, with original wood flooring, brick walls, and a bamboo butcher block top used as the checkout area. The renovation of the retail space entailed Randall reaching out to local contractors and retailers, including Portsmouth-based Greenovations and Newington-based Rockingham Electric, to support the local economy, and integrate their green building concepts into a location which merges style and sustainability.
