The Wear Movement - Collecting Clothing for our Future

Apparel Design and Merchandising Professor Connie Ulasewicz and colleague Gail Baugh held The Wear Movement’s first clothing textile collection on April 5. Sponsored by a grant from the SF Department of the Environment to reduce textile waste in SF, the project’s goal is to cleanly collect categories of textiles (ex. denim clothing or hoodies) consumers no longer use, and share them locally.

Change up your outfit!

The Wear Movement is collecting Hoodies and continuing to collect Denim during the month of May, every Thursday, 10 am – 2 pm at the Farmers’ Market in front of Humanities Building on campus. Other locations and clothing collection  requests to follow. Watch for announcements on #thewearmovement, or email cbu@sfsu.edu with your questions.

Wear what is already here and reduce water use and carbon footprint to impact climate change. Keep your clothing out of landfill. For each clean item you bring in, receive  “Wearbucks currency” for immediate or future purchases. Share your contribution or purchase on social media with a picture of your item with the hashtag #Thewearmovement.
