Tad More Tailoring is a fashion tech start-up specializing in clothing alterations both online and in person with a mission to reduce textile waste and save the environment. In 2022 Tad More Tailoring performed 23,000 alterations and has set a goal to achieve 40,000 alterations in 2023. Tad More Tailoring invites everyone to join the "No Buy New Year Challenge" in 2023 with the goal of reducing textile waste and saving money. The challenge is precisely what it sounds like: In 2023 individuals who participate will not buy any new clothing, instead focusing on finding new innovative ways to style the clothes they have or thrifting used clothing.
According to Sarene Alsharif, LDN, MPH the CEO of Tad More Tailoring, "The fashion production industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. Each and every one of us can do something about it by deciding to revitalize the clothes we already have or buying second-hand. With this new year challenge, we hope to show everyone that reducing your fashion footprint can be easy and that by taking simple steps we can have a positive impact on the environment. Beyond that, if the reason that someone isn't utilizing their current wardrobe is due to ill-fitting or damaged clothes, an internet connection gives everyone access to quality, affordable tailors via the Tad More Tailoring website. This enables people to alter or mend the clothes they already have; saving the environment and money all while supporting jobs in USA. It is a win-win-win!"
Here are a few eye-opening facts about why it is important to join the "No Buy New Year Challenge": (source: https://edgexpo.com/fashion-industry-waste-statistics/)
