THE R2R CREW

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Ashleigh Morgan

CREATIVE DIRECTOR

BIO: Ashleigh Morgan fell in love with fashion while pursuing her studies, at the age of 17. While others around her were enjoying being young and carefree, Ashleigh was working hard at learning everything she could about the fashion industry and how to stop the overproduction wheel that has been running rampant for too long. At 19 and with a vision, she created Recycle2Riches. Her main goal is to collaborate with amazing and SMART transparent brands around the world. She believes that fast fashion and over consumption is not the way to shop. Ashleigh believes that everything can be used for something and that the earth can help us preserve the future for generations to come.

ORGANICUP

A PART OF THE CLEAN PRODUCTS COLLECTION

BIO: Since our founding in 2012, it has always been about more than cups. 

“We believe no one should be held back by their body. We believe period products should not contain harmful chemicals nor absorb natural bodily secretions, resulting in infections. Periods should not be the cause of major pollution. And they should never, ever be a source of shame.”

Those four sentences have been, and continue to be, our guiding principles.

Our #NewPeriod manifesto is the measuring stick we turn to in every decision we make:

Making products for, and with, the people who use them, putting sustainability at the centre of our business, committing to honest and transparent communication, and making a positive impact on environmental, cultural and social scales. 

On this page we have mapped out our journey, growth and achievements over the past years, and share some of the fun and interesting milestones!

Fly And Proper

A PART OF THE SUSTAINABLE FASHION COLLECTION

BIO: 90’s fashion is back baby, and dare we say it - here to stay! Jess Cole grew up in the 90’s, and while just about everything pop culture ROCKED, far and away the best thing about the decade was the rise of SCRUNCHIES. So naturally, when scrunchies made their way back into present day fashion, she was stoked! She bought countless scrunchies from various retailers and had the same constant problem: they all sucked. They were cheap, poorly made, and struggled to keep my long, full hair secure. In addition, it seemed like everyone was selling the same types of scrunchies: velvet + weird midi sizes. Where’s the fabric/pattern/sizing varieties people?? After assessing the sad collection Jess had accumulated, she decided to start making my own scrunchies. Just like that Fly and Proper was born.

BLUE HERON BOTANICALS

A PART OF THE CLEAN PRODUCTS COLLECTION

BIO: Blue Heron Botanicals is the passion project born to owner Theora as a young woman living on the Lake Champlain Islands of Vermont.  Growing up in a quaint island town nestled between the Adirondack Mountains of New York and the Green Mountains of Vermont Theora learned the importance of responsible and self sustainable living at a young age.  Theora’s childhood home is where her deep love of Mother Earth was nurtured by her homesteading parents and where she fell in love with the eternally majestic Great Blue Heron, a welcomed and much anticipated symbol of spring on the lake.  Harnessing the rejuvenating energy of spring and the resilient spirit of the Heron, Theora began to create small batch salves and balms that allowed her family’s delicate skin the opportunity to rebound from the harsh conditions to which it was seasonally subjected.

DEUX LIFE

A PART OF THE ECO KIDS COLLECTION

BIO: Our mission is to give more clothing a second life through eco-friendly outfitting. The average American throws out 81 lbs of clothing each year and only 10-20% of all clothing donations actually find new homes. Our landfills are piling up with usable clothing, adding to the pollution challenge of our generation and threatening the future our children will inherit. We want to change that. Originally conceived by Melissa Gerber inside the Loyola Marymount University’s MBA Program, Deux Life has grown into a nationwide wardrobe curation service that offers gently-used, brand-name children’s clothing at secondhand prices. By mindfully collecting, inspecting, and curating pre-owned pieces we’re extending the life of America’s clothing and providing an affordable option to parents of fast-growing children. And to be sure all the items we rescue find a home, we gift 1 of every 5 boxes we curate to an underprivileged child via our partners at local schools and participating charities. Together, we're bringing thrifting into the future, reducing America’s carbon footprint, and giving more clothing a second life.

HOW IT WORKS:

1. Pick your style - Are you looking for a trendy look to wear to school? Or an athletic style for play time?

2. Pick your size - Separate tops/bottoms sizing available! In-between sizes? Let us know in the notes.

3. Dress for the season - Do you need long sleeves and pants or are you easy breezy in shorts sleeves and shorts. Need a mix? We can do that, too.

4. Add any notes - Hate jeans? Prefer pink? Let us know.

5. It's in the mail! We'll pack and ship a box specially made just for you.
