reSTORE: Integrating Sustainability into UChicago
Diverting Waste: By collecting community clothes as inventory, our thrift shop aims to divert clothing waste from landfills and back into closets where they will be worn.
Accessible, Sustainable Alternatives: Our thrift store's central location of Stuart Hall will provide the entire campus community easy access to second-hand clothing.
Supporting local organizations: Through its non-profit designation, the thrift store will donate all profits to local environmental organizations (list of partners coming soon).
