Learn about how they are providing a platform to rethink and reconnect to the entire fashion supply chain, their store model for giving a new life to clothing, tips for upcycling and preserving clothing, how they are collaborating with other co-ops to divert clothing waste, and more resources to empower others to be environmentally and socially conscious clothing consumers
