Environmental Impact From Fashion
More than 80 billion pieces of clothing are produced worldwide each year. Of these pieces, 75% will end up in landfills, meaning we are using up the planet's resources at a rate that is unsustainable. By consigning with VSP, you are helping to make change and to offset the fashion industry’s carbon footprint.
New Circles Community Services is a Toronto-based not-for-profit, grass-roots agency that builds strong and caring communities by providing basic necessities to clients across the region. They provide much needed clothing, social programs, and skill building opportunities to individuals living on a low-income, with a focus on residents of Thorncliffe Park, Flemingdon Park, Victoria Village, Taylor-Massey, and Oakridge - many of whom are newcomers to Canada. New Circles operate the largest clothing bank in Toronto under the name of GLOW (Gently Loved Outfits to Wear), designed to offer a retail shopping experience that preserves dignity for clients. By consigning with VSP and donating items at the end of the season with our partner not-for-profit agency, consignors are contributing as active members of the Toronto community.
