Katrina Weber and Elizabeth Ramirez are self-proclaimed entrepreneurs and shopaholics. They admit to years of fashion-related overindulging, and recently created an online business that plays to their shopping strengths and manages to recycle gently worn items that might otherwise collect dust.

The Shopaholics Recycle boutique debuted on Black Friday, a day when many people get caught up in a shopping frenzy. The site features select resale, one-of-a-kind vintage pieces, new pieces from classic and up-and-coming designers and timeless recycled items.

The mission of Shopaholics Recycle is to provide “classic, contemporary, easy-to-wear styles for the everyday fashionista.” Items are culled from stylist wardrobe consults, vintage and consignment shops and, in some instances, direct from vendors in the fashion industry. Some of the brand names shoppers will find include BB Dakota, Alice + Olivia, Gucci, Michael Kors and Betsey Johnson.

The feel good factor extends beyond recycling; a portion of every sale goes to Share Our Strength, an organization dedicated to ending child hunger in America.
