…It’s Website Wednesday: The Uniform Project?

Uniform Project

The Uniform Project is a campaign to raise money for the Akanksha Foundation (a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India) in which Sheena Matheiken will wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion.

Though she’s wearing one dress, there are seven identical copies of it so that she can have a clean one each day of the week, and each day, Sheena will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accouterments, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies.

…Narwhal recycles neckties?

Narwhal

Narwhal Co. takes gently used, vintage neckties, and recycles them into handmade, one of a kind accessories, including wallets, iPod covers, iPhone covers, wrist wear, clothing, and even custom orders if you know exactly what you want.

Since each item is unique, you’re guaranteed not to see another just like it. Plus, since they’re made with recycled materials, you can feel good about your purchase’s effect on the planet.

Sounds good to me!
