The idea of being sustainable, eco or green has changed tremendously over the past few years, so it’s hard to say what fits into these three categories.
Below are just a few ways that Leslie Yang of Feisty Elle embodies these concepts:
- Using eco friendly materials such as bamboo ply and 100 percent merino wool felt.
- Keeping it green at the Feisty Elle office and using packaging made from recycled content as well as recycling all packaging and materials.
- Producing locally with all pieces designed and assembled by hand in San Francisco as well as sharing a commitment to working with local business (suppliers, manufacturers, printers) whenever possible.
I recently caught up with Leslie in New York at the NOW Showcase to see what makes her tick when it comes to sustainability. Here’s what she had to say.
