The Fábrica was founded, among other reasons, to salvage textiles and clothing that might otherwise wind up in a landfill. With mending and altering we help people keep the clothes they already have, or fit clothes they have gotten secondhand. When we accept donations of leftover fabric, tools, and notions, we do our best to make sure those things get to express the life they still have in them, the thing that makes them more than mere trash.
For Earth Day this year, we would like to express our gratitude to other organizations who promote the cause of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and to dedicate ourselves anew to that same set of tenets.
We also want to say thanks to all the folks who come in to the shop who–even if they weren’t expressly aware of it, though many are–have done their part to follow that credo. And a thanks also to the volunteers and supporters who make it all possible.
Happy Earth Day!
