Recycling and repurposing has been a way life for us long before it was on everyone’s radar as it is today. Honestly, it pains us to throw things away. Out of sight is not out of mind for us. It has to go somewhere and if it’s just tossed, it will likely be in a landfill. That’s not to say that we don’t toss things away, we try to keep that to a bare minimum. So we are always pleased to see new ways to recycle and repurpose items. On that vein, we’d like to introduce you to My Modern Closet, a new take on consignment shopping. This site created by Chloe Popove allows you to shop local consignment finds by way of collection (ie. the style of someone you like) such as local food blogger, Erin Ireland, or by size, denim or athletics. If you are the one doing the shopping on the site, items are delivered twice a week locally. If you wish to consign items on My Modern Closet, drop offs are made downtown and pick ups are available within a 20 minute drive of downtown Vancouver. The idea is to make it accessible to every women. Note though, do expect a wait for items to be picked up. Last we heard the wait was up to January 2017. Now on the other hand, if you want to have a fun night with friends and shop for clothes and/or accessories, Chloe can also host a Private Shopping Party. For this you invite a minimum of 10 ladies (maximum 15) for an evening. Let Chloe know what type of garments people are looking for (ie. work garments or casual wear), some size guidelines for clothing and shoes, any accessories you might like. Chloe can provide a stylist for a fee. The party can last 1 or 3 hours, it’s up to you. Whether you chose to shop, consign or host a private party, you are making a difference. We feel all those steps are in the right direction. If you wish to learn more about the affects of clothing on our environment, we invite you to read the post ‘Matters‘ on My Modern Closet.
