In the big picture of conservation, we're all doing our part. We're minding how long we run the kitchen faucet....bringing our own shopping bags to the market.....ordering CSA boxes to eat local and support the nearby farmers. In mindful ways, we're connecting our household to the global mindset: diminish our waste til it all but disappears.
In the retail industry, we're seeing how the responsible economy is building traction. Take the Patagonia company's Reduce, Repair, Reuse service. It offers to find new owners for your used Patagonia gear when you no longer need it. Then there's Mud Jeans Global Recycled Standard. Mud Jeans wants to end waste by only using recyclable material and urging other garment manufacturers to do the same. Mud's upbeat video introduces us to the concept here.
We want to do our part, too. Think of Forest & Found as your neighborly resource for recycling cool stuff. When you donate your no longer needed items, we'll make sure to highlight their best side and their usefulness. When you shop at Forest & Found, you'll find inspiration and creativity in extending the life of good goods.
