The Conscious Fashion Meetup at Yksi Expo

We’re bringing plenty of brand new, unworn or hardly used clothes 👗👚👖 – which we saved from landfill, preventing a lot of carbon dioxide getting into our atmosphere – for you to take over.
Rescued clothes will cost 2, 5, 10, 15, 20 and max. 25€ per piece – depending on type and condition.
All the money 💰 that we collect will be dedicate for the further development of our “Towards Sustainability” project – initiative by People for Planet.

Although we already have a lot of cloths to sell on the event, we would also like to ask you for support!
We are pretty sure there are some nice pieces of still very good quality cloths hidden in your closet, that could find a new loving owner! Please give your unworn cloths a new life and donate them to our event.
