Today is the 45th anniversary of Earth Day and the 16th anniversary of denisebrain.
On April 22, 1999, Earth Day was 29 years old and I sold my first vintage dress online. I wasn’t thinking “hey, Earth Day is a great day to associate with selling vintage clothing,” but it was my good fortune that the day coincided. I’ve always been interested in the beautiful recycling aspect of vintage clothing, so what a perfect day to get started.
Some more good for the Earth:
- I wrap your items with acid-free tissue paper that is 100% post-consumer recycled
- The ribbons I tie packages with are made of 100% recycled cotton
- MacHighway, the website host for denisebrain, is wind-powered
- I donate at least 10% of sales profits to endangered species and environmental causes annually
