Event description

Description

Thanks so much for your interest in volunteering with us! All volunteer positions are filled. We would love to meet you! Please join us at the event. More info here!

esa new york is a non-profit organization mending the disconnect with our relationship to clothing and the fashion industry, through the power of community, experiences, and education.

We’re here to do 3 things:

  1. Raise awareness about the fashion industry’s impact on people and the planet.
  2. Empower you to take matters into your own hands with easy yet powerful actions and equip you with tools to sustain those actions.

  3. Fuel the conscious consumer movement to spark real and lasting change.

Ultimately, esa believes we, everyday-jean-wearing people, have the collective power to hold corporations accountable creating a world that works for and supports everyone.

On Sunday, February 24, 2019 we'll hold our 6th do+brew event, a d.i.y. party that teaches D.I.Y. and mending tutorials, saving unwanted clothing from hitting landfills! In fall 2018 we saved over 600 lbs of garments from landfill. This year our goal is 1,000 lbs saved from landfill. Want to be part of making this goal possible? Sign up to volunteer! We are a 100% volunteer-run organization so your support is vital to making this happen.
