I really don't know that we are doing things one way or another to benefit the earth over here. But here are a few things that I do know....
Take Dolan Geiman, for instance. The pieces of art we have collected take a bunch of seemingly dissimilar items and group them together with great care giving them a new life as cool art.
Ginger Griffice of Marfa Brands makes some of our favorite natural soaps and she supplies our glassware. Remade from old bottles, the Topo Chico and Sol glassware has an inherent history and an honest motive. We don't need to beat the drum about how eco-friendly it is. Its just plain cool and sensible.
Stash currently has an amazing collection of one-of-a-kind Sam Roberts LA hats and apparel. Working exclusively with vintage materials, John and Bobbie elevate each distinctive piece by embracing the unique character within the object. Such attention to detail elevates each handmade item to a place of wearable art. Again, we could drop buzz words like upcycle in this conversation but is it necessary? It's art.
What does Stash have to throw into the mix of environmentalism? That's up to you. I'd just say we build bags and accessories and furniture with consciousness.
So I don't know if I would beat a drum about any particular eco-friendly aspect of our business but in an effort to promote some American jobs and support our artisans, I'm going to offer 10% off on all purchases of $50 or more. Use the code AMERICAN at checkout. Discount good through midnight tomorrow both in store and online.
And if you are looking for something new and practical, we have a limited edition line of Daily Totes now available. Won't be making any more of these. They don't wear a cape and they aren't going to save the planet in a single bound but they are reusable, they make a good gift, and they are a great way to introduce Stash to a friend.
