JOIN THE TRIBE!
Did you know that....
... the fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world, just after oil?
... landfills almost the size of Australia are filled with recyclable textile waste?
... a shirt and a pair of jeans use up to 20,000 liters of water to create?
... 200,000 tons of water are necessary to dye just one ton of fabric?
... 1.5 trillion liters of water are used by the fashion industry each year, despite millions of people not having access to fresh water?
Now before you go being all doom and gloom, settle in and hear about our vision!
When we started Terra Ombré, it was clear that we wanted to bring together a lovely little collection of diverse and beautiful items at affordable prices for our customers to enjoy as their tastes change and evolve with the seasons.
We love fashion! We love that it changes all the time, but at the same time we don't want to be part of the problem. So, what to do?
The TRIBE was born.
How does it work?
From upcycling, recycling, swapping and donating, we partner with local programs to ensure your items get a second life. So, when you're done with your pieces, simply contact us to arrange collection or pop them into the mail and send them to us.
We will sort them in their respective categories and make sure nothing goes to landfill. You can even send us items that were not bought at Terra Ombré!
For every item you will get points depending on their condition:
- For items that can be swapped: 5 points
- For items that can be upcycled and donated: 3 points
- For items that will be recycled: 2 points.
- For all items you have not bought from us: 1 point
For every 10 points, you get 10% off your next purchase.
It's that simple!
Yes, it's not perfect. It's not the answer to all, but it is a first step and we'll strive to find more ways to keep online shopping enjoyable, whilst making it more environmentally feasible.
