Penn Closet Thrift Store

clothing reuse

Project sponsors of the Penn Closet hope to foster an economy of reuse and shared resources, as well as provide everyday essentials to students at a lower cost.  Founded on the principles of “reduce, reuse, recycle,” Penn Closet will help divert perfectly usable items from landfills while encouraging students to think differently about consumerism and waste. Penn Closet will be run through Penn Student Agencies on a model similar to Williams Cafe and Quaker Corner. Project leaders also envision Penn Closet as a space for events centering on sustainability, and a space that will facilitate learning and community around sustainability issues.
