Last spring we were introduced to the wonderful work of FabricAID.
The Lebanese social entrepreneur Omar Itani brought a fantastic purpose-driven business idea to life with both a social and environmental impact on society.
FabricAID collects, sorts, and redistributes clothes to disadvantaged communities at micro prices (below $2 per item). Their goal is to deliver good quality clothing into the hands of people who need them, while also reducing fabric waste (one of the biggest environmental problems we are facing).
FabricAID is one of Alfanar’s portfolio companies and has won many awards such as 1st place (amongst 500 participants from 60 countries) at the Global Social Venture Competition last year.
Yesterday, FabricAID opened their new shop in Tripoli (Bab el-Tabbaneh). Such a great achievement!
A new start for your old clothes? They have collection bins across Beirut. More info www.fabricaid.me
