beacons initiated a BYOBag policy for our brick and mortar stores in february of 2015 with a percentage of proceeds going to charity. we have raised $13,684 so far!

on the steps of city hall cindy was quoted “BYOBag policy at beacon's closet is about positive reinforcement. our customer base is concerned about the environment as our business model is essentially recycling clothes. there is an active moment where something might click with a customer, when they are participating in our program by paying that extra few cents, and they just might remember to bring their own bag the next time."

it’s a creative act to resell, reuse and remix clothing. re-interpreting and 'essentially recycling clothing' is also an ethical way to shop.

this earth day, we remember that our love for our planet and for secondhand and vintage clothing goes hand-in-hand.
