Sustainability

At Our Closet we are passionate about finding ways to rectify the linear economy model that is currently the norm. We believe strongly in creating a more sustainable way to consume personal goods including fashion and accessories. To do our bit we’ve created a circular economy where instead of an item being bought, worn once then disposed of, it can then be used by many other people by being recirculated amongst them. This reduces waste, meaning less of our ‘stuff’ ends up in landfill.

This is important because every year New Zealanders send around 2.5 million tonnes of waste to landfill – that’s over a tonne of rubbish per household.

Our current make-take-dispose culture is bad for the environment, it’s costing our country millions of dollars every year, contributing to our carbon emissions and it’s depleting our valuable resources.

By renting and buying from Our Closet, you can make a strong impact on a sustainable future in a joyful way by connecting with our community of changemakers who want to be sustainable without sacrificing on style.

Our Closet is proud to be a part of the Sustainable Business Network in New Zealand, you can read more about our collective mission here, Common Objective and CoGo.
