)-- San Francisco based maternity line Storq closes the loop on sustainability with their consumer apparel recycling program. Storq offers maternity essentials in easy-to-shop bundles that keep expecting mamas looking and feeling like themselves. The Storq maternity wear recycling program powered by 2ReWear, enables customers to recycle their pre-loved mother-to-be clothing responsibly and also raises funds for charity.
“2ReWear is delighted to partner with Storq and help expand textile diversion for this very special segment,” said Eric Stubin, 2ReWear CEO. The fashion industry generates 30 billion pounds of textiles each year and 85% of those textiles are thrown out. The average American trashes 81 pounds of textiles each year, which equates to 25 billion pounds of textiles sent to landfills annually. Current textile recycling efforts in the U.S. only capture 15% of what could have recycled. The need to close the loop on textiles and post-consumer waste has never been greater.
“Instead of burning your old pregnancy attire in a ritual bonfire, we’ve partnered with Re2Wear to help you recycle it,” said co-founder Courtney Klein. All proceeds from the pieces you donate will go to Circle of Health International and in return, recyclers will receive a $25 gift certificate towards a future Storq order. Storq’s clothing is seamless and tag less for comfort purposes. The Storq line is made of soft modal and spandex, which leaves room for stretching. Items come only in black and white, which was important to co-founder Klein, since many maternity looks she found on the market were pink, loud and floral. When creating their line, Klein consulted with doctors, doulas, herbalists and beauty experts to carefully select products with low Environmental Working Group (EWG) ratings without compromising efficacy or style. “Our goal with Storq is to empower moms-to-be by providing an online resource for maternity essentials that are equal parts practical, accessible, and stylish,” said Klein.
Storq began after co-founder Courtney Klein discover that her pregnant friends were frustrated from the lack of quality, stylish maternity clothing options.
