About Haberdash for Humanity and Sean Schmidt

To 'haberdash' is to deal in men's small notions (i.e. small, useful items), such as hats, ties, buttons, etc. Here at haberdash.org we're peddling another type of notion...small ideas and bits of information that have a big impact on the future of our world. Our goal is to create a resource and community for men that informs and inspires us all to make more sustainable personal lifestyle choices at home, at work, and at play.
