Founded in 2018 and operated under Penn Student Agencies,, Penn Closet is a recipient of the 2017 Green Fund and constituent of the Student Sustainability Association at Penn (SSAP). We are a group of students committed to creating. a more circular economy on campus and providing affordable pieces promoting self-expression. We hope to promote sustainability and raise awareness of environmental waste through our operations.
We are committed to:
- 100% donation-based shopping experiences
- Real-world waste reduction strategies
- Self and stylistic expression
All items are donated by the Penn community and bought by the penn community. Unsold donations are re-donated to organizations such as Goodwill to ensure that no waste is generated in our operations. By creating this circular economy at Penn, we extend the lifetime of items used by the Penn community, decrease the chances of items left for landfills and incinerators, and encourage the Penn Community to incorporate more sustainable and ethical shopping habits.
