About this project
Hey Kickstarter! Thanks for checking out my project!
Everyday, tons of clothing is thrown away. This clothing ends up in our landfills and eventually breaks down. As the fabrics break down they create gasses such as Methane and CO2. These gases can cause changes in our climate and even seep into our soil and water supply.
I use these thrown away garments to create new fun, exciting, one of a kind pieces, saving them from the landfills and saving the resources that would have been used to create more fabrics, such as energy and water.
So What Exactly is Upcycling?
Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value. (From Wikipedia Encyclopedia)
Where Will The Funding Go?
Your pledges will go toward professional photography of the garments, supplies to finish creating the line of products for the summer such as thread and elastic, transportation of the large quantity of fabrics to my home studio, and tranforming the current website to an ecommerce website where purchases can be made online.
What Will Be Produced In The End?
A summer line of clothing for children, men and women including shorts, tops, dresses, accessories and even pet gear! All of this will be for sale on the website.
Thank you so much for your support!
