When a product is made to last you only have to buy it once in your life time. Buy Me Once is an online store who's long and short term missions align with my values.
- Make it easy to buy things that are built to last.
- Provide tips and articles to take care of the things you have.
- Encourage people to buy just a few great things they love rather than huge amounts of clutter.
- Challenge manufacturers to build products that last longer than the current products on the market.
- Contribute to changing our throwaway culture to a "keep" or "pass on" culture.
I sell quality vintage wool blankets that were made to last a life time. These blankets were passed along for generations and the bonus is at the end of there life can be composted. Some of the blankets in the online store I modernize, by dip dying the ends or adding new trim which extends there life.
