My friend Dana is an amazing women who started an amazing business, Other People’s Property.  Beside carrying vintage clothing amazingness (you can check out her full shop here), I absolutely love what Dana is doing with OPP because she has committed to running a business that gives back to communities around the world in a foundational way.  OPP believes in giving generously to non-profs and sustainable communities in from the funds they make.  They are also working to educate and provide resources for consumers to recycle their clothing and reduce the crazy amount of waste we create everyday.
