I’m in love. I’m sold. This is the dog collar for all you green-ies out there. Via a woman-owned, independent company based in Boulder, Colorado that’s better known for their high-end, high fashion purses, messenger bags, wallets.

The collar’s made of recycled inner tubes on the outside look cool, and are tough. Unused surplus seat belt on the inside. Surprising comfortable for the pooch. Go get ’em.

  5. Way- our new red collars are almost out. I’ve got connections so I can probably procure one for you soon. Redford will be ridiculously handsome and fabulously eco in this collar.

  6. […] Recently, we interviewed our ol’/young friend/colleague Summer Rayne Oakes at LOHAS conference in Boulder, Colorado. At that conference, we were happy to offer super eco (reused, repurposed—not just recycled) English Retreads bags to our various interviewees. I gifted a special fancy one to ecomodel Summer Rayne Oakes, since I’d assured my longtime buddy Heather English (who I met years ago at Kyudo) that sweet Summer Rayne was the ultimate ‘eco product placement’ and advocate. Six months later, Heather sends me the below video, mostly about Summer Rayne Oakes‘ new book, Style Naturally—wherein our fave ecomodel sweetly gives big props to English Retreads. […]

  8. I do accept as true with all the concepts you have presented to your post. They’re really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
