The average American throws away 68 pounds of clothes per year, almost 100% of which is recyclable.
Eileen Fisher is an upscale clothing brand with a focus on sustainability and great design. Its offshoot, Green Eileen, is a recycled clothing initiative committed to reducing environmental impact and generating income to support programs that improve the lives of women and girls. Ragfinery, Bellingham’s own textile reuse center and job-training organization, is pleased to be hosting Green Eileen’s very first West Coast Pop-Up Shop on Saturday, Oct. 11 from noon-4:00 p.m. There will be close to 500 designer garments on display and for sale at a fraction of their original prices!
All are welcome to come shop the collection of gently worn Eileen Fisher clothing and learn about similar initiatives in our local community. Meet the folks who are taking care of those in need and are protecting our environment, and learn about the local and national organizations that benefit from the Green Eileen recycling program. A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to support Ragfinery.
Note that Ragfinery will have a delayed opening on October 11 (open noon to 5:00 p.m.) so that they can prepare for this exciting event.
