Give A Sh!rt: Cultivating Community through Reuse, Breakfast Presentation Hosted by Savers

What motivates you to reuse or donate old clothing? Eliminating consumer waste in the environment? De-cluttering your home? According to the Savers 2017 State of Reuse Report, for most people, helping their community is the key driver for them to reuse or donate their clothing. Attendees Joined Savers for a conversation about how organizations can help cultivate community through reuse. The panel discussion brought together “reuse” experts from three organizations that are on different sides of the reuse world – repairing, reselling and upcycling – to discuss consumer motivations and how their organization is helping people redefine the good life by reusing goods – and in turn building a community.
