Circular Fashion Playground
Circular Fashion Playground
We can all jump right back into a great experience at the playground.
Perhaps it was using the monkey bars for the first time, imagining the playground as a pirate ship with your friends, or learning how to “pump” on the swing.
Playground experiences introduce an exciting way to explore and adapt circular fashion in our lives.
Reclypt’s Circular Fashion Playground will provide experiences to foster lasting practices & community such as swapping clothes for the first time, imagining the different ways you can upcycle your clothes with friends, or learning how to “darn” your socks. Our vibrant and interactive environment will encourage participants to play with circular fashion alongside the Reclypt community to learn and grow practices and methods that work best for them.

To keep this event price accessible, we encourage participants to pay-what-you-wish or contribute to suggested donations for those bringing circular fashion to you. This may look like a $10 suggested donation for a sock darning workshop, tipping your stylist, or paying a tailor or embroidery tattoo artist an agreed upon price for their work.
Upcycling requires a lot less water and energy than buying new and recycling. It decreases textile waste, pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. Overall, the practice of upcycling clothes lowers the demand for new clothing production, which is extremely wasteful and destructive for people and the planet.

What is "Deadstock"?
Basically, any leftover fabric that is not being used. This can be untouched rolls of fabric, cut up fabric, or damaged fabric.
Nonetheless, it typically sits in a warehouse before it is thrown into landfills where it can take a life time to decompose, emitting harmful greenhouses gases as it does.
Also known by a few names, with “overstock”, “surplus fabric”, and “remnant” being the most common.
