Megan Evans, Founder
Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Megan Evans (the M.E. in AS SEEN ON M.E.!)
By day (and a lot of nights and weekends), I work in politics - a journey that began with Obama ‘08. Said journey has taken me all over the country, from rural Indiana to Miami, but ultimately, I came back to my roots in DM, IA. The jobs, the people and places were all different over time, but a few things never changed:
- I wanted to help make a difference.
- I wanted to help people learn how they could make a difference.
- I hit up every Goodwill, consignment and thrift store along the way.
With the above ^ all still being true, I decided it was time to bring two passions together...scene AS SEEN ON M.E.
To show people that you don’t need to purchase new every time you need something and that we can make such a positive impact if we start thinking about sustainable, impactful shopping options - and this all gets political, get ready.
So join me and a couple of my best babes who help put real faces + looks to this idea and movement *friends, family, and my little fur baby Fez all make appearances, too!
We hope you’ll come find us at a pop-up, shop some of the looks here or just get a little bit of inspo for your next SUSTAINABLE killer look.
