Thanks to [ Josh Spear ] for the heads-up on [ TRAID ] :: their approach to recycling clothes is really inspirational...
TRAID is a charity committed to protecting the environment and reducing world poverty by recycling and campaigning at home. Funds raised in the UK by TRAID through the collection and sale of reclaimed clothing and shoes help to divert waste from landfill and fund sustainable development projects in some of the poorest regions of the world...such as Afghanistan, Costa Rica and Madagascar.I'm big on thrift and love to find new old clothes and unique things... I love the hunt! Love diggin'! and I love the fact that you are, in essence, rejecting our obsession with consumption.
I wish TRAID had a store in Glasgow to check them out. It is, however, still inspirational because it shows what can be done with some imagination and an eye for good stock.
Check it out.
