One Person’s Trash Is Another Person’s Treasure

HIMANE and Greenbees are two (women-owned) visionary companies turning landfill junk into chic, sensible fashion.

Did you ever think about what happens to old, broken umbrella's? In the past, they ended up in the landfills, but now Brooklyn-based company HIMANE is turning them into stylish coats, dresses and handbags.

 

And what about tires? Every one (made from half a barrel of crude oil) that is rescued from the landfill by Greenbees results in a new pair of eco-awesome shoes.

Reducing landfill waste while looking fabulous….that's a treasure for everyone.
