The Conserve Collection
At Classic Childhood we rescue pre-loved shirts that could end up in the landfill and we turn them into brand new classic style children's clothes. We have partnered with our community of neighbors in Austin, as well as with local companies like WeWork and Josco Products to rescue as many men's dress shirts as we can, before they end up in the landfill. Every year in this country every person donates / throws away an average of 80 lb of clothes that only 17% of those clothes end up in someone's closet, the rest end up in a developing country's landfill which eventually get incinerated causing a tremendous amount of CO2 emissions to the world. Although when we rescue one shirt we save 2,700 littler of water which is the equivalent of 3 years of drinking water for one person.
