Ragfinery Hosting (Second!) Green Eileen Pop-Up Sale
Ragfinery and Eileen Fisher are teaming up again to bring Bellingham Green Eileen’s only west coast “Pop-Up” Sale on Saturday, May 30th from 11am-2pm. Our first collaboration was a great success with many in attendance and funds raised for job training, women and girls programs, and environmental causes.
Around 500 gently used designer garments will be on sale at a fraction of their original prices, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Ragfinery. Attendees can shop for sustainable clothing and explore Ragfinery’s warehouse of textile resources and upcycled goods.
“The average American throws away 68 pounds of clothes per year, almost 100% of which is recyclable,” said Duane Jager, Executive Director of ReUse Works. “It’s great to team up with Eileen Fisher because we’re both committed to many of the same objectives such as extending the life of fabrics, reducing the amount of textiles going into landfills, and raising awareness about the concept of reuse.”
Eileen Fisher is an upscale clothing brand with a focus on high quality materials and sustainable design. Its Green Eileen program is a recycled clothing initiative committed to reducing environmental impact and generating income to support programs that improve the lives of women and girls.
Note: Ragfinery will have a delayed opening on May 30th (open at 11am) so we can prepare for this event.
