Sustainability & Equity
"Because when I shop... the world gets better."
- Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009)
Upcycled Aviary indeed hopes that by creating a shopping experience where sustainability and commitment to reuse/recycling and upcycling, will indeed make the world a little better. All fabrics used in our Upcycled Line are reclaimed or repurposed from garments, and our efforts to reduce fabric waste are well thought-out before we cut. Keep a look out for one-of-a-kind garments made from fabric scraps!
“Hasta la vista, baby!"
- Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)
Upcycled Aviary is saying farewell to excessive packaging for shipping and in-store shopping. We are committed to mitigating our waste by sourcing and purchasing local, sustainable and eco-friendly materials for packaging, printing and branding. Our poly mailers are 100% compostable and we highly recommend you use it for your next culmination of food scraps. Also, if you bring your own reusable bag to shop in store to receive $1 off your purchase.
"Home is where the heart is."
- Jekyll & Hyde (1931)
Community is everything to us at Upcycled Aviary. The importance of actively engaging not just with our professional partners but by developing key relationships with the people of Hamilton is in the forefront of everything we do. Creating a better world starts right here in the Hammer. As we grow, we commit to using the excess garments reclaimed from the film industry to those that need them the most. Stay up to date on Upcycled Aviary’s clothing drives, dress for success days and how to donate through our email newsletter.
Upcycled Aviary is situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas. We stand in solidarity with murdered and missing Indigenous women, girls, transgender and two-spirit people.
