Northern Juniper Wallet – TenTree
There has been a lot of talk about vegan leather recently. More often than not, materials claiming to be vegan leather are just made from toxic pollutants, unsustainable materials, and oil. But not this Northern Juniper wallet: it is made from REPREVE polyester, meaning it was created using recycled plastic. The wallet also comes from TenTree, meaning each purchase funds the planting of ten trees. Shop here.
Brave Backpack – Matt and Nat
