When we see something cool and good, we like to share. Periodically, we’ll highlight a company or project that we think is interesting and shareworthy. They probably aren’t ready yet to be an iGive store, but that shouldn’t stop you from thinking about their efforts.

This month we’re introducing you to Karma Trik. Karma Trik is a clothing item for women that can be worn at least 15 ways.  This innovative  product is versatile, simple and sustainable. Not only is the company mission “buy less, use more,” but the cloth for this project is made from plastic bottles in Haiti, a country with no other recycling infrastructure, providing jobs in an economy that is rebuilding. The cloth is brought to the U.S. where it’s crafted artfully. It is sewn at an employee owned co-op in North Carolina.

Take a look at Karma Trik. It’s cool, it’s new, and sounds useful.  It’s an Indiegogo project, so if you like it, read about how you can support its development, the risks associated with the project, and maybe get your very own!
