These materials, textiles, fibers, paper, and wood, have been reclaimed by our artisans and created into the stunning clothing and crafting supplies that we all love!
To put the sheer amount of material into perspective, here are some things that weigh 12,765 pounds!
- An african elephant
- 14 horses
- 5,500,000 jelly bean
Totals for 2022
- No. of trees planted: 2,372
- Pounds of waste material saved: 33,083
Trees.Org x Darn Good Yarn
Every purchase from our Be Darn Good Collection, gives back to the global community. For each purchase from this collection, a tree is planted by our friends over at trees.org! For 2022, to exceed last year's milestone, we hope to plant 30,000 trees this year with trees for the future. This amazing group works to plant trees in areas that have been affected by soil erosion and climate change. With each tree planted there is hope for the future -more food, more wildlife, and more jobs!
In March, thanks to our community, we were able to plant 944 trees. That makes a total of 33,083 trees for the year of 2022 so far! One step closer to our goal!

If you're not a crafter (no judgements) we have a Facebook group for our fashion-lovers! We love to see people's Outfit Of The Day (OOTD) and people getting inspired by and supporting each other!
These are outfit GOALS
