Goodwill Revolutionizing Used Clothing

| Thursday October 25th, 2007 | 7 Comments

home-07-1018-whitefrog.gif.gifBuying used clothing is a great way to go green and get an interesting wardrobe at the same time. But it’s still hard to get the mainstream to accept it. Goodwill has never been sexy. That may be about to change.
The venerable charity has teamed up with the founder of Joe Boxer to launch a new line of used-clothing stores called William Good. The first store opens November 5th in San Francisco and is expected to spread. Not only will the clothing be recycled, “The floor of the shop is made from vinyl record albums, the paintings on the wall of clowns and dogs are found art. The racks will be made out of books – they get a lot of books at the Goodwill. We’ll just stack them up in two rows and run a bar across it, and that’s where we’ll hang the clothes.”

    I had a business for twelve years taking old furniture and with the help of talented artists, renovating each piece. The work orders and designing was a tricky business. I am in awe of what you are doing. Count on me for help if you need it. I am a green interior designer and a great advocate of using found materials. Congratulations on a great line and keep up the unique work!
    Oh, and by the way, I love the idea of stitching and cutting around the stitches!
