Support National Op Shop Week at Salvos Stores in August to benefit the environment as well as those struggling to make ends meet.
Reusing, recycling and reinventing fashion is the aim of National Op Shop Week from August 21-27, supported by the Salvation Army’s Salvo Stores.
Salvos Stores diverts 15,000 tonnes of clothing and household items per year from landfill and during National Op Shop Week, will be holding in-store events in various locations throughout NSW, QLD & ACT.
“Fashion with a Conscience is about being caring, mindful and thoughtful with your fashion dollar,” says Faye De Lanty, eco stylist, fashion commentator and Ambassador for Salvos Stores. “Sourcing your wardrobe from a charity like Salvos Stores not only helps those less fortunate but our planet too. Fashion is one of the most wasteful industries in the world, that’s why it’s so important to reuse, reinvent and recycle our clothing as often as we can.
“Stop and think, maybe you could op shop it and give the planet and those less fortunate some love instead,” continues Faye. Never think that an op shop can’t be current, fashionable or cool. Second hand can be seriously eco chic, you just need a little know how and a mindful heart.”
Salvos Stores use all their proceeds to fund vital work in the community on a weekly basis. For more information and how to support National Op Shop Week and Salvos Stores visit www.salvosstores.salvos.org.au or ring 13 SALVOS (13 72 58).
