Resources to build a wardrobe you love with the planet in mind.
Care for your clothes.
Mending, Tailoring & Alterations.
Loved clothes last. Having a closet full of clothes that fit you well and that you mend, repair, and look after is a key to a sustainable wardrobe. Here are our favorite providers of tailoring, alterations, and shoe, handbag, and leather care.
Resources for disposing of textiles and other hard-to-recycle items.
For clothes that are in good condition and still have life left in them, consign, sell, or donate. (See our community page for a list of local nonprofit organizations we love that accept donations of in-season clothing in good condition). For everything else, see the resources below!
Plastics, Styrofoam, Electronics & Household Waste
When it’s time to buy new.
Eco & Ethical Brands
We know that shopping consignment isn’t always the best option. Some things (like underwear) are tougher to buy secondhand and sometimes you just need something particular. Here are some brands we love when it comes to buying new. What do we look for when evaluating a brand? Pieces made of natural fibers and natural dyes, sewn in good working conditions and not over-produced.
Zero-Waste & Refill Stores.
These stores sell products package-free and in bulk, so you get what you need without the waste! From home cleaning products to bath & body and even package-free groceries. We are so excited to have them in Portland!
