    Dear Readers:

    It was recently pointed out to me that ‘Wearable Collections’ is not an official non-profit – rather, they refer to themselves as “an agent for non-for profit organizations” as well as “a fundraising tool.”

    My sincere apologies for any confusion this might have caused. We certainly like to check our facts for Inhabitat write-ups, and this is one fact that was not evident to me the first time around. That said, we still think that they have a great initiative underway, and we support their recycling efforts!
