WHERE IT ALL STARTED
HOYAS WITH A DREAM
It all began back in 2016: a pie of pizza, two college kids, and an idea. We have now launched at select universities in DC. We've had a bunch of late nights and early mornings. We're grateful to everyone who has helped along the way.
CLOTHING WASTE IS CRAZY
80 billion articles of clothing are consumed worldwide every year. Americans buy 5x as much clothing as they did 30 years ago. The effects of the fast fashion industry are way worse than they need to be, and we're feeling it in every step of the supply chain. It starts with clothing production where we use water, energy, and chemicals that most people don't think about and ends with clothes in landfills, where they emit greenhouse gases.
CONNECT PEOPLE, NOT CLOTHES AND LANDFILLS
Dressmate offers a new way of thinking about and fighting clothing waste. We need to help each other to help the earth. We're on our way to starting a retail revolution in an industry that has a lot of inefficiencies.
