Ginger Root (15/U) firmly believes in reusing old materials to make new items that are eco-friendly and fashionable. In the spirit of the holidays, the girls behind Ginger Root, and clothing line ReVamp, are asking for your old sweaters: pilled, ripped, shrunk (i.e. not wearable) for them to turn into hats. The girls will revamp a donated sweater into two hats: one will be donated to charity and one to sell in their store. The purchase of a hat will finance the donation of the “sister hat” to the area’s needy. So if you have any sweaters that are no longer wearable: stop in at Ginger Root and donate them. Or, buy a hat and keep someone else warm this winter.
