Shop Secondhand First: Reware Vintage Hosts T-Shirts for the Climate Fundraiser for Earth Day Weekend to Support Climate Change Organizations


Reware Vintage, a vintage clothing store in Berkley, Michigan, is hosting an Earth Day weekend fundraiser to raise money for two climate change organizations: Clean Air Task Force and The event, called T-shirts for the Climate, will be a $10 T-shirt sale featuring new, used, and vintage shirts donated by the store and its customers.

All proceeds from the T-shirt sales will be donated to the Clean Air Task Force, which is working to decarbonize the global energy system. Additionally, 10% of all other in-store sales during the event will be donated to, a grassroots organization fighting climate change.

Reware Vintage specializes in casual vintage clothing for men, women, and kids, and takes pride in supporting a more earth-friendly, circular market. The store uses only compostable and recyclable packaging, tags, and other supplies.

"We want to do more for the next generation," said owner Bethany Nixon. "For Earth Day weekend, we're happy to support two groups doing great work in the fight against climate change. Last year we raised $700 for the groups we were supporting, this year we're looking to raise even more!"
