Jill and Eric Goldstein are the owners of Denimrepair.com. They believe that mending is better than ending. The company does repairs on all things denim, preserving the lifespan of each piece in an effort to keep more textiles out of landfills. For customers that prefer to do the mending on their own, Denim Repair created a sustainable DIY Repair Kit. This kit includes repurposed patches, belt loops, waistbands, and more. When looking for a sustainable packaging alternative, Jill and Eric believed the Greencraft Clamshell packaging created a further extension of their efforts to reuse, reduce, and recycle.
Denim Repair’s goal is sustainability. The environment is a precious resource and their company’s goal is to help propel that movement towards a better planet. By repairing jeans instead of replacing them they are helping to reduce waste and encourage recycling. Love and Live!
