At Siela, it’s so important to us that we practice what we preach. When we say that we exist to help you shop on purpose, that means that we want to encourage consuming less, and when you do shop — shop intentionally.
But what happens after you shop? In today's world, we know it’s not necessarily realistic or attainable for people to hold onto items forever. In order to really encourage and educate our audience on circular consumption, we have to walk the walk and talk the talk.
That’s where Siela Full Circle comes in. We’ve come up with a multi-faceted approach to offer our community that allows you to shop purposefully, consume consciously, and when the time comes — properly repurpose or recycle your items.
We’re committed to implementing the following initiatives for both our in store customer and online community. Click on the links below to learn more about each individual offering.
Get Started: Indie Incubator Program
It starts at the beginning. At Siela, we work with brands that share our values. In order to bring you the best and brightest new products, we are always looking for new partnerships and products.
If you are getting started and searching for places to sell your conscious goods, we want to connect with you. This program allows innovators, makers, and artisans that are just getting started to find a place on our shelves.
Take Care: Mending + Alterations
Once we’ve connected you with your “good goods,” we want to help make it easy to take care of them. The longer you’re able to use and enjoy your purchases, the better.
In order to help you do that, we offer simple mending services and alterations with a local artist. Simply drop by the shop with your items in need of repair, answer a few questions, and we’ll handle the rest. You’ll receive a text when your items are ready. It really can be that easy to reduce your clothing waste and prolong the life of your pieces.
Close the Loop: Resell + Recycle
Trends come and go, style changes, and our lives and bodies fluctuate. It’s totally normal to need a refresh every now and then. So when you’re ready to part with your pre-loved apparel and textiles, bring them back to the shop.
We offer a consignment program that allows you to exchange your items for store credit. The best part? We accept items that are in great condition from a variety of sources. They don't have to be from Siela or another ethical brand — fast fashion pieces need a chance to find a new life in someone else's closet, too! Be sure to check our resell page for the most up to date information on items we're looking for each season.
And for items with rips, tears, or stains that are unable to be resold or donated, we will be introducing a fabric recycling program. So whether your items are in great condition or not, we help close the loop and keep clothing out of the landfill.
Come Together: Local Events + Workshops
There’s no getting around it: we’re stronger together. To continue to grow, learn, and make positive changes, we are always working to grow our community of people who give a damn. (People like you!)
Through educational events, sip and swaps, and pop up markets, we love getting to connect with you IRL. Click over to our events page for a peek at our calendar. And if you’re a local teacher or maker that would like to collaborate on a workshop, please do get in touch! We are always on the hunt for new events to add to our lineup.
As always, we welcome your feedback and questions on how we can improve. We never stop working to become more comprehensive and circular in our approach.
If there’s something you don’t see listed here, or a program you’d like us to consider, please contact us. Together, we can build a community of action-driven world changers on a mission to leave this place better than we found it.
