Action Sports Retailers Convention 2010

Action Sports Retailers Convention has come and gone this year and it was an amazing experience. ASR is one of the largest retail conventions for the surf industry where all the huge labels come out and show off their latest lines. Fortunately, it was held in beautiful San Diego, so it was really convenient to have it in our home town! This was my first time ever attending ASR, and I was blown away. All the biggest brands were there in full force trying to show off all their new lines of clothing for the upcoming seasons to all of the retailers. To the left is a picture of the entrance when I...

Book Review: The Lazy Environmentalist on a Budget

From Sustainable Sean…Being the Lifestyle Ambassador & Co-founder of SSF and all, I thought Josh Dorfman had written the perfect book when he penned his first opus, The Lazy Environmentalist back in 2007. Many authors have attempted to write the next big guide to going green, but none quite compared to Josh’s first ‘guide to easy, stylish, green living’. As it turns out…Josh himself has written the next big guide to going green…and its AWESOME! Once again, Josh is able to make going green totally down to earth and accessible. When Joe the Plumber...

Seabags – sailed around the world, recycled in Maine

from haberdash.org…As a rower and occasional sailor, I have a strong affinity for the water. Perhaps that’s why I couldn’t pull myself away from the display booth of Sea Bags, Inc. while attending the 2008 ECOLLECTION event at MAGIC. Or perhaps it is the fact that the bags have a great utilitarian design, that they are made from recycled sails, or that they are the perfect gift for anyone that is connected to water in some way (I have plenty of those). But I think what really grabbed me is that this is the perfect manbag. Sure its appealing to everyone from your Aunt Sally...

Recycled tie accessories by Narwahl

from haberdash.org…Whoever said giving ties as gifts was tired hasn’t seen these ties yet. I came across Narwahl while attending the <a “href=”http://www.magiconline.com/magic/v42/index.cvn?id=10366″ target=”_blank”>2008 ECOLLECTION show at MAGIC. Narwahl’s line of recycled tie accessories that includes wallets, ipod and iphone covers, wrist wear, and t-shirts stood out for me due to their great design and quality, as well as the fact that it’s rare to find men’s accessories that have a sustainable story. With the tie material,...

MauiThing – Stuck on Good

from haberdash.org…I’ll be doing a new dispatch on my recent 2008 Maui trip finds soon but I just couldn’t hold off on this one. While lunching in Wailuku I stumbled upon a little shop called MauiThing. They’ve got the coolest shirts around and their motto is “Stuck on Good”. In fact, they are inspired by all ‘things good’ on Maui. Not only do they sport hipster American Apparel shirts with great graphics, they offer some organic options, and have some great local and community messaging ranging from peace and composting to equality and...

Pink Paddlers on Tribal Journey

I recently took part in the 2008 Paddle to Cowichan, BC, the destination for this year’s Tribal Journeys event that takes place each summer in which Tribes from around the Puget Sound and Canada paddle traditional canoes to a host tribe. I was invited by Dannny Marshall, Tribal Leader of the Steilacoom Tribe to be part of their canoe family along with the Carver Camp Canoe Family headed by Phil Red Eagle. The group had just finished carving a hunting canoe called “Flicker” and were getting ready to take her on her first voyage. I’ve been volunteering with the...
