State of Recycling
Last year, Berkley-based shop Peninsulas partnered with Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources to create state park merchandise. Ten percent of every purchase goes towards park maintenance and improvements. “It seems like a natural extension of celebrating the state of Michigan,” says Robert Jameson, 46, who owns Peninsulas with his wife, Sherri Lawton-Jameson, 49. The two share a love for camping, and recognized that durable, sustainable products are a perfect complement to the outdoors. Peninsulas’ DNR-licensed products boast eco-friendly qualities, as well. Their canvas tote bags are made from recovered cotton yarn and recycled plastic bottles, while water bottles are made from recycled aluminum.
