I first started thrifting in high school because it was the most affordable way to shop on a minimum-wage budget. My favorite store was Aardvark in Venice, where the racks were full of vintage items — floral dresses from the fifties and cashmere crewnecks with just the tiniest moth holes that could be fixed with a needle and thread. We weren’t thinking about it then, but thrifting is seriously sustainable.
I was looking for the perfect sustainable Father’s Day gift online, when I discovered Nordgreen eco watches. Whether the watch becomes an actual gift remains to be seen — it also could end up on my wrist.
I’m so excited for Women in Green. The last time I participated was way back in 2010, and so much has changed for women AND green since then! If you’re in Los Angeles this month, join me at the 6th annual Women in Green Forum, which is taking place at the verdantly gorgeous TreePeople property on August 26th. I’ll be moderating a panel on the share economy featuring Lyft and my favorite preloved fashion source, thredUP. Plus, there’s a full day of amazing programming that you won’t want to miss!
