Where: Alki Beach, 59th Ave SW & Alki Ave (across from Spud’s)

On April 22, Earth Day, Savers/Value Village, the global thrift store chain, is hosting an interactive art installation at Alki Beach that asks people to consider their clothing footprint and rethink reuse.

Every year, North Americans send 10.5 million tons of clothing to landfills, 95 percent of which could have been recycled or reused. This installation is made from thousands of pieces of used clothing and represents the impact your decisions about how to dispose of used clothing have on the environment. This visually arresting wake-up call asks people to rethink reuse—spare landfills and resources by donating your used goods/ buying stuff that lasts/ buying used clothing.

As a purpose-driven thrift store chain focused on reuse, Savers/ValueVillage kept nearly 650 million pounds of reusable items out of landfills last year—including more than 45 million pounds of clothing, textiles and other items from local landfills in Washington state.
