SUSTAINABLE & CREATIVE OUTLETS FOR EXCESS CLOTHING
Excess clothing is a resource. One that is sitting in the closets of nearly every American. The Clothing Co-op aims to pool this resource and reduce our collective clothing footprint through education and awareness around the global climate effect of our clothing over-consumption, and through tangible recycling and re-purposing of excess clothing.
We are joining the ranks of sustainable and transparent fashion companies around the world to bring you a local solution.
When clothing lands with the co-op, you can be assured your garments are re-circulated ethically, sustainably, creatively.
IN OCTOBER 2019 THIS CONCEPT WON A BUSINESS COMPETITION PUT ON BY ROGUE CO-OP ASSOCIATION TO EXPLORE THIS IDEA AND CREATE A THRIVING BUSINESS MODEL AROUND THIS UNTAPPED RESOURCE.
CAPTURE EXCESS CLOTHING THROUGH MEMBER CONTRIBUTIONS AND DONATIONS. DISTRIBUTE THE WEAR-ABLES AND RE-PURPOSE THE LOW GRADE. EDUCATE CONSUMERS ON NEW PRODUCTION POLLUTION AND INTRODUCE MORE SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVES.
AS A CO-OPERATIVE BUSINESS MODEL, WE WILL ENLIST MEMBERS TO BECOME OWNERS OF THIS COMMUNITY ENDEAVOR. SEASONAL CLOTHING SWAPS ARE CURRENTLY BEING RUN BY A GROUP OF CORE VOLUNTEERS AND WE ARE LOOKING TO EXPAND THIS EFFORT.
