Carousel Community Closet / Donation Station

Carousel Community Closet
Carousel Community Closet

The fashion industry is the second-largest polluter in the world, just after the oil industry. People may think they reduce the impact by donating but piles of clothes that have given to charity mostly end up being third world countries’ dumps thus affect their local clothing industry. That's why it is important to find local solutions and address the impacts of fast fashion’s constant linear consumption by offering new models like collaborative consumption. Carousel is a community closet that offers a new perspective on second-hand clothing. It aims to change the perception of thrown away donated clothes to respectfully shared "our" clothes.
