As I was researching EcoQ products, my girl looked over and asked how long I would be able to keep this feature going. After all, she wondered, how many environmentally friendly (or friendlier) dapperQ style relevant products are there? To be honest, I don’t know. But, what I do know for sure is that there is at least one helluva product worth mentioning this week: FairEnds Ghana camp caps.
Each one-of-a-kind, super dope cap is made from deadstock (residual leftover fabric that is often scrapped after production, contributing to waste) waxed cotton fabric from Ghana.
The Huffington Post reports, “According to the “EPA Office of Solid Waste, Americans throw away more than 68 pounds of clothing and textiles per person per year and clothing and other textiles represent about 6.3% of the municipal solid waste (in major cities like New York and Chicago alone, textiles make up a whopping 10% of all municipal waste).” FairEnds keeps their deadstock fabrics out of landfills and uses them to create a unique, dapper accessory that has been seen on everyone from hipsters to hip-hop heads, and skaters to dandies.
