THE WEAR MOVEMENT

COLLECTING FOR OUR FUTURE

What DoES IT MEAN?

A Life Style Choice

  • The average person has 75lbs (113 garments) in their closet that they don’t wear anymore. 
  • Textile and clothing production and consumption patterns currently contributes 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions. 
  • The Wear Movement is a brand that signifies a lifestyle that lives lightly on the earth. This lifestyle is focused on attention to careful use of resources, yet loves a sense of discovery and excitement when finding something new to treasure for awhile.

A Conscious Decision

  • Avoid putting your clothing in the garbage that is headed to landfill.  
  • Allow your clean clothing and textile products to be collected and sorted for repair or embellishment and sold to new consumers, re-entering the marketplace. 
  • All newly sold product will be branded "the Wear Movement" with a visible logo where possible, to signify its re-entry into the market with nearly no additional CO2 emission or water consumption.

How It Works

WEAR: Enjoy Your Clothing

Think about what you have and watch for the Wear Movement's Targeted Ask to bring in what you're not wearing when we ask for it. We'll be collecting different categories of clean clothing and textile products each month.

SHARE: Switch Up Your Style

Find a good home for the clothes you still love but no longer wear. The Wear Movement specifically collects at locations on the San Francsico State campus, one or two categories at a time, cleanly collecting to easily see what's new. 

LOVE: Love Your New Purchase

Bring in something good, go home with something new. Then, share your new item on Instagram #TheWearMovement ad with your friends. Love the earth (saving water and less CO2) with every purchase from the Wear Movement. Love what is already here an pay it forward.
