About Us - Old
Sustainable shopping is the future and the future is NOW!
Why is everything a mystery?
Our inventory is always changing, and photographing, measuring and describing each garment is costly and time-consuming. Rather than doing this for each item we receive, we just source and categorize our own inventory instead. Eliminating this part of the process allows us to pass the savings directly on to you.
Are you guys a charity?
Not yet, but at some point we will launch a 501(c)3 charity. Presently, we incentivize customers to donate, and further, we only purchase our clothes from suppliers who purchase their clothes from an extensive network of charities, such as Goodwill, Salvation Army and Boys & Girls Clubs of America. So by buying from us, you're indirectly supporting them too.
Is TagPop good for the environment?
Yes! Each year, 10.5 million tons of clothing waste goes into the landfills (that's ~seven filled Dallas Cowboy-sized stadiums worth!) for one reason; 85% of Americans do not donate or reuse the majority of their goods.
TagPop's mission is to resell, repurpose and revive clothing in order to combat the fashion waste crisis and provide consumers with the best products at a low cost.
TagPop sells clothing by category -- so if you want a denim jacket, you'll order a denim jacket and our stylists will select one just for you based on your order history and style preferences. If you don't like what you get, email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what we got wrong -- we'll keep trying until we get it right. As for the original item, just donate it to a charity of your choice. We'll update our data and keep sending you jackets until we find one you like.
We do our best to find all our items a new home, but those we can't sell are matched with charitable organizations, like Bowery Mission in NYC. We even recycle unsellable merchandise, so nothing in our inventory ever goes to waste. We believe that in this way, by 2020, Tagpop will be repurposing 2 million tons of apparel each year that would have otherwise gone into landfills.
