After four years in the eco-friendly apparel business, Pangaya will be shutting its virtual doors as soon as its current inventory sells out. The business hasn't failed, owner Sean Bartlett tells TreeHugger via e-mail. "It's more of an effort vs. reward scenario." He does note, however, that eco-chic retailing remains an area he is passionate about, as well as one that he would like to get back to when "the opportunity is right."
One of the pioneers in the online eco-fashion business, Pangaya will be sorely missed—and we wish Sean the very best in his coming endeavors.
