It has been reported that the clothing industry is responsible for around 4% of the world’s waste. 92 million tonnes of waste every year.
This is in part due to emergence and proliferation of “fast fashion” (as mentioned in this post), and much of the scrutiny needs to be directed at clothing companies and their practices.
Some companies have admitted to destroying clothing with minor errors, or clothing that is simply unsold or out of season.
Put simply, it’s complete bullshit.
It’s a crying shame that in someone else’s hands these items would be binned, that’s why we’ve set up a depop shop for our seconds, samples and ex-display items.
The items in the shop have either been used in photo shoots or used in displays (and then fully washed), or have minor printing errors/stitching pulls that are hardly noticeable.
This is reflected in the pricing, along with a further discount as a thank you for helping eliminate unnecessary waste in the clothing industry ?
****We’ll be keeping this shop updated as we go along so make sure you give us a follow. And from time to time we might drop some super special items in there!****
