The Brand

Izzy's Imperfect Items is a small business that aims to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills by using exclusively second-hand or thrifted materials. Originally, scrunchies were made using abandoned hair elastics found on the ground that had been cleaned and sterilized.

Since COVID-19, the company has shifted to using thrifted elastic from bedsheets and other linens instead. When the world goes back to normal, Izzy's Imperfect Items plans on continuing to collect hair ties off the ground to continue to preserve the environment.
