  • I always feel best about buying clothes at thrift stores. Not only is it less expensive, it's a fun treasure hunt, is reuse by definition, and the little money I spend usually is supporting a non-profit. Feel good shopping all the way around. Love Goodwill and Salvation Army in Pleasant Hill!!
  • My favorite product is a handbag that I purchased from Global Exchange. It is made out of recycled truck tire inner tubes. It is very stylish too.

    I also make a recycle product. I make jewelry and hair barrettes out of recycled glass bottles.
