Responsibility is the price of freedom.
Freedom to explore is a privilege. We are privileged with mobility and infused with life - all of which are made available through our planet. Although one lifetime is not enough to navigate our Earth, it may be enough time to save it from the increasing affects of climate change. Thus arose this small but daring shop named "Hemisfere".
I recycle denim from thrift shops and donation centers to wash, hand-paint and sell on Etsy. 10% of all proceeds are donated to charities including:
The Green Peace Fund
How can you help?
The high quality upcycled denim I use comes from people in my community for donations of old jeans that no longer fit them, or I go to our local thrift store, In Full Swing, to purchase them. The proceeds from purchases go to aid women suffering from domestic abuse. Check out their mission below.
As of 2016, 13 million tons of perfectly wearable clothing are thrown into landfills every year. This makes up 9% of all trash that end up there.
These clothes could easily be recycled with some effort and help from everyone in the community. If every person in the United States donated their clothing instead of throwing it out, we would be relieving 13 million tons out of 230 million tons.
