We want to prove that ethical shopping is possible.

Do you know :

  • the clothing industry occupies second place in the ranking of the industries that pollute the environment the most; only the oil companies are ahead of it,
  • We produce 2.2 billion tonnes of waste each year,
  • more than 60% of the world’s garments are produced in developing countries. Asia, headed by China, is the main exporter meeting 32% of global demand.
  • As much as 29,000 litres of water are needed to produce 1 kg of cotton,
  • textiles lying on landfill sites are not biodegradable and for several hundred years they are going to emit harmful chemical compounds to the environment,
  • as much as 68% of consumers verify the attractiveness of clothes only on the basis of the relation between the discount price and the initial price.
  • about 10 years ago the term “fast fashion” was coined – it is a trend in the clothing industry, the intention of which is to deliver clothes from the catwalk to the shop as quickly as possible. It creates a constant need for mass production of cheap clothes, almost disposable.
  • According to estimates, clothes account for as much as 5% of global waste production. Only a small part of this waste goes to second hand shops in the rich countries of the North.

These are the facts. Earth is overflowing with rubbish. Let’s help it to live and breathe by buying second-hand clothes, ecological, already made rather than new, and the clothes made in factories where people earn decent money. If we can, let’s make use of fashion by sharing it with public benefit organizations – foundations and associations that know how to help others. Let’s buy consciously.

These are our values. This is how we act and in this direction we want to continue to develop.
