In this video, We Heart DC Entrepreneurs shares the story of Reena Kazmann, the owner and founder of Eco-Artware.com, an online art eco gift store offering well-made and eco-friendly jewelry and gifts that showcases functional crafts made by artists committed to sustainability.
She started Eco-Artware after discovering two innovative green designs made from recycled materials at the New York Gift Show in 1999, and bravely plunged into the wild west for she believed that this was just the beginning of a larger movement that would develop sooner or later.
Some of the products, created from recycled, reused and natural materials, that you can find on Eco-Artware are:
- Gifts for birthdays, graduations, anniversaries and weddings
- Corporate and promotional gifts for businesses -- some can be personalized
- Decorative accessories for your home
- Soft toys for children
