Waste from Second Hand Stores. Only 10-15% of clothing donated to second hand stores actually makes it to the market. The bulk of the donations they recieve end up in landfills. Major brands dump surplus merchandise onto thrift stores in overwhelming amounts. Donations are too large for second hand stores to sell or manage, so they ship these items to landfills within a few weeks. AKA shopping secondhand does NOT take items away from those in need.
we've got issues
Textile Waste is generated by companies who mass produce, and have surplus unsold merchandise. Every year 10.46 million tons of textile waste are sent to landfills, and millions of dollars of products are burned by luxury brands.
One human's waste is another human's fit. We proudly source our vintage, modern thrift & textiles secondhand. Don't reinvent the wheel if the world already has a surplus of them.
Unboxing on Instagram sure is cute but we don't find it necessary to send our customers added fluff. We reuse boxes & packaging. Our mailers are biodegradable & compostable.
