GIVING BACK – Interwoven

GIVING BACK

Delivering Good Donation

January 16, 2022

We at Interwoven often consider the inevitable environmental effects that come with working in fashion; the main being the waste issue the textile industry leaves on the planet. We pride ourselves on being a hub of carefully curated brands, that are, more often than not, small batch, eco conscious, and/or sustainable. If you’ve been following our Interwoven journey, then you know that our mission is to be more than just another store. Yes, we’re passionate about fashion, expression, but above all, making an impact on our community and beyond is the heartbeat that kick-started this party 8 years ago (holy shit… where does the time go?). So, it felt like a no-brainer when we stumbled upon Delivering Good, that we had to be a part of their powerful and influential cause. The nonprofit provides new clothing, home goods, and beauty items to individuals across the nation who have been faced with poverty or tragedy. So basically we are a match made in donation heaven. Where we once felt a sense of, to be candid, guilt while looking at the surplus of pretty, shiny things we’ve accumulated but didn’t really have much use for, is now a sense of gratitude for Delivering Good and the badass things they’re doing. In 2022, Interwoven donated $15,688.75 worth of new apparel, accessories, and skincare items to Delivering Good. We look forward to doin good and feelin good leaving an impact on those who need a hand (while minimizing our impact on the planet as an added bonus) alongside them in the future. Happy 2023, y’all.

In lieu of a Black Friday promotion

 

The term itself- Black Friday is so odd to me and I really don't like playing by the rules; especially when these rules involve promoting over-consumption. This year, instead of offering some sort of blow-out, knock down the door Black Friday promo, we donated 10% of our sales to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Monmouth County. Below is a receipt of our donation and we thank all of you for being on this ride with us. Have a happy Holiday season.

 Local Monday: Gives Back

In the Summer of 2022 we were proud to partner with other local businesses around Asbury Park to give back to New Jersey-based non profit organizations who make our community stronger every day. Every Monday we donated 10% of our total sales and our partnering business also made a sales-based contribution.
