We’re facilitating sustainable fashion in Africa.
I went from building a Fintech company to running an imported thrift business for 4years.
I experienced first the effects on importation on our economy as we both more rags at high dollar exchange.
Most importantly, I noticed that customers want to sell out more items that they didn’t need as the acquired new ones. But there’s no automated declutter infrastructure so far.
I took the bold step, to create a process and infrastructure that will empower more women to make passive income and impact the environment globally.
How declutter helps the environment?
Thrifting and Decluttering are activities every individual should engage in quarterly, annually or yearly.
Do you know that 100 billion USD value of clothes is lost annually by incineration and landfills.
And AFRICA has no infrastructure for unused clothes instead we have become the dumping ground for foreign countries, endangering our ecosystem and landmass.
In our last survey of thrift customers in NIGERIA, we found out that most women wear their dresses 3-4 times in a lifetime.
Women own more clothes than they need and these clothes are either given out or thrown away.
Shopping thrift will reduce the negative effects of fashion labour and divert items from landfills.
