Harlem 82 Sustainable Mystery Boxes: The Vintage Mystery Box

Sustainability and style have not always been a popular combination within the fashion industry, however, with fast fashion becoming one of the biggest contributors to climate change, we think it’s time to combine them more! Many clothing brands in recent times have chosen to choose easy profit over their social responsibility by their many unethical practices. Fast fashion is the second most polluting trade, right behind the oil industry. The premise of fast fashion in the mass production of cheaply made clothing which is made to reflect the “current trends” at the time and a considerably lower price range. Is that low price worth the environmental damage it’s causing to our planet?

For a shopper’s point of view, it ultimately comes down to an ethical decision: to buy new or sustainably friendly? Changing your shopping habits to create a better impact on our environment is something we should be all be doing and if you haven’t, even doing something like incorporating some pre-owned items in your rotation is a great first step. Avoiding contribution to fast fashion means you should not be shopping in high street retailers but instead seek to purchase pre-owned items, which completely avoids supporting the new production of fast fashion.

Here at Harlem 82, we offer a new way to recycle and re-use clothing,so we can give each piece that would otherwise be wasted, a new life! We’re here to help in going against fast fashion and donate to those in need by working with charities and giving clothes to the local communities. For every mystery box we sell, we donate one to people in need. This happens every month and updates will be posted on our Instagram page!

Our vintage sustainable mystery box will include between 3 vintage items with at least 1 vintage branded item, from brands like Burberry, Nike, Fila, Gucci, Versace, Diesel, Ferrari Racing Gear, Stussy, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, Puma, Kappa, NBA-Gear, Champion, American College Sweatshirts, etc. We offer male and female boxes in summer or winter packages.
