Vintage: The Plan to save the planet
Fast fashion = waste. The solution? Vintage.
Every year our planet is polluted & damaged by millions of pounds of plastics, nylons, and acrylics.
We can fight that.
Here's the plan - Let's reuse the past and preserve the future by minimizing our waste. Let's start using what's here, instead of constantly creating more.
Hard-Hitting Fast Fashion Facts
1. “Three out of five fast fashion items end up in a landfill” (Clean Clothes Campaign, 2019)
2. “Washing, solvents, and dyes used in manufacturing are responsible for one-fifth of industrial water pollution” (McKinsey, 2020)
3. Fast fashion brands use open-loop production cycles that pollute water and land” (The New York Times, 2019)
4. “The fashion industry is responsible for 8% of carbon emissions” (UN Environment, 2019)
The Solution :
99% of our products are deadstock vintage. They were made at least 20 years ago, but went unsold to the public. Most are in their original packaging.
This gives us a rare opportunity to recycle, reduce, and reuse these untouched vintage gems.
