What is the problem?

Today, the fast fashion industry, with brands such as H&M, Forever 21, and Zara, is among the three most polluting industries worldwide, next to oil and cattle industries.

 

In the fashion industry pollution is not the result of an individual process only, but of several ones:

·    The crop cultivation of the raw material

·    The fabric and the final product making.

·    The transport use for long and longer distances.

·    The use or the consumption of clothing.

·    The waste or disposal of clothes in landfills

In rropero we discovered that the USE AND THE CONSUMPTION are the crucial point where the consumer can change directly this pollution chain by taking simple measurements to achieve a great impact.

Today, mainly women, buy many clothes and we use them very little , so we can be trendy and we can have different outfits and look different all the time. The problem is that in average we use a garment less than 10 times when we could use it for at least 50 times, and we keep buying more and more, piling up, and wasting clothes in great condition.

What is the project about?

 

rropero has the mission to encourage the adequate use of clothes to diminish the consumption of brand new clothing, and the pollution, by changing the perspective and use of clothes in Mexico: sustainable clothes and lifestyle

 

This is why we have created the first specialized sales platform of used clothes to buy, sell, swap or donate among women in a safe space, and in an easy and responsible way. A unique and sustainable marketplace.

 

Results up to now

 

Rropero has been operating for 4 months as an online store. Through this model we have achieved to give a second usage opportunity to 500 garments, reducing 300 kilograms of carbon dioxide (CO2 eq). This amount of CO2 is what 180 trees can absorb during a year.

 

With a million of reused garments we could avoid producing what 360,000 trees could absorb in one year.

 

This is almost a fact, but WE NEED YOUR HELP to grow and to achieve taking our project to thousands of millions of mexican women who are ready to change the fashion industry in Mexico.

 


 

How will the money be used?

 

The investment will be used to enter an acceleration program from Unreasonable Mexico. This program is the best one for social and environmental entrepreneurs that are tackling the most urgent challenges in Mexico. Unreasonable Mexico will provide us with investors, mentors, and a wide variety of resources and tools to push rropero to a greater impact and a large and faster growth.

 

How and when will the rewards be delivered?

 

Once the campaign finishes the digital and physical rewards will be sent in the following 30 days. You will be receiving the physical rewards at your doorstep, or at your office, but these rewards are subjected to Mexico, USA, and Canada, only.

What are the risks of the project?

 

If we don’t achieve our goal ($115,000 MXN), we will not be able to have access to the people and the resources Unreasonable Mexico can provide us.

We will lose the opportunity of becoming the FIRST MEXICAN STARTUP to implement a model that is innovative,  scalable and systematically measures the carbon dioxide footprint of the reused clothes.
