HUMANITY DOESN'T NEED TO RECONNECT WITH NATURE
We already are connected. We just need to remember it.
JUNIPER D. YOUNG
I'm the madmiss behind Unmarked Gear.
I have an educational background in Anthropology and Outdoor Recreation Economy.
My sustainability journey started at a small gear repair shop in Seattle, WA, where I spent a crazy 8 years. I got a long-term, first-hand look at how gear was designed, how it was used, and how it failed.
Learning how to sew in the shadow of this gap between product design, customer expectation, and end use started a lifelong journey that has currently led to this experiment in sustainable (and hopefully eventually regenerative) retail.
Ultimately, my purpose in life is to untangle and unearth stories that spur growth and reinforce inter- and intra-human connection.
