PICKED: Hello Rewind

Social enterprise Hello Rewind is the beautiful marriage of sustainability and human rights activism, addressing two eco-social challenges — the 16,000 tons of textiles thrown away each day in the U.S. and the 100,000 women being sex-trafficked — with one brilliant proposition: Recycle your old t-shirts into custom laptop sleeves, supporting sex-trafficking survivors.

Starting a self-sustaining business supporting sex trafficking survivors is almost unheard of in the United States. In fact, many people don’t even understand the extent of sex trafficking taking place.” ~ co-founder Jess Lin

Here’s how it works: You order a laptop sleeve in your desired size and they mail you a prepaid-postage envelope in which to send your used t-shirt. Hello Rewind then sews your custom sleeve and ships it back to you in 2-4 weeks.

What’s not to love?
