Impact
Shopping
Week
It's official! No more burning clothes!
Create impact by doing what you love, Shopping.
It's new, it's simple, and it makes a difference.
...because sustainability is fashionable
Why would we invite you to shop more? For conscientious consumers this would be counter-intuitive, right? We are usually reminded to recycle, repurpose, refurbish and look in our own closets.
SANGROVE
But are these our only options? What would happen if nothing truly new was bought? It would be endless thrifting, recycling, upcycling and repurposing, right? If we stop buying new fashion, creators would simply stop making it. But fashion is not merely about material goods. It is the fullness and freedom of our expression of ourselves, it is our means of communication with the world about who we are. We cannot simply give up on it.
We have
developed a new
way of shopping
and creating new
fashion
AND WE ARE DOING IT RESPONSIBLY AND GUILT-FREE
Let’s unite in fighting our common enemies – over-consumption and over-production. Let’s collectively address and rectify the sad fact that as much as 30% of all fashion remains unsold after it it produced, and is dumped straight into the landfill. These are things that are produced, shipped, stocked in stores, all never to be worn or used by anyone.
We are a team of idealists and we invite you to change your shopping habits – from impulse to #Impact – by focusing on preempting waste of unsold goods and saving natural resources. WE ASK YOU TO HELP US STOP THE DUMPING OF NEW CLOTHES!
