1) The market for resell is hot. More and more people are realizing that their used goods still have value. Hence the saying, another man's trash is another man's treasure. In this day and age, it has become harder to make a dollar.. and a few extra bucks never hurt anyone. The market for resale has turned into a passion project for many consumers looking to clean out closets and replace old garments with new ones from those funds. In the end, with this mindeset, everyone wins.
2) Its no secret that we, as humans, are wasteful. The only way you'll know how wasteful you are is the day that you decide to participate in sustainability. There is an oversupply of clothing garments in the world. If you're reading this, you most likely have a closet full of clothes that you haven't used, have grown out of, or just are simply waiting to be worn once a year. Garments that people assume cannot be refurbished, typically can be reused as textile for something new. Unfortunately most of those garments never get the chance.
3) Here at EQC, we have big dreams and big ideas for our community and business. We continue to work hard in order to gain a higher market share that in turn will allow us to encourage more leaders and entrepreneurs to help influence others in the always ever changing environments of the fashion industry.
4) We want to influence a new generation of thrifters to increase the demand in a diluted market. Clothing is a way for humans to express themselves. Why not express yourself while saving what you work hard to make? Vote for sustainability by making the economy a more circular market and give used or recycled items a chance first.
5) We want to challenge the current leaders of the clothing industry, (Nike, Adidas, H&M. etc) to find the next round of entrepreneurs of the future who will find ways to recycle old clothing and break it down completely and turn it back to new. Technology has done wonders in the past and we believe that we can get there very soon. This will create a circular economy where all of our clothing goes through the cycles of life continuously.
