The Pasta Haters aims to build a community around second-hand shopping and style.
Let us introduce you to a new community entering the sustainable fashion scene. The Pasta Haters, named by the thought “that no one should live on pasta to afford the life they choose and more precisely the style they love”, is founded by Lisa Gautier, a French entrepreneur who decided Stockholm would be the cradle of her startup journey.
Since 9,5 billion kilograms of clothes are thrown away every year, The Pasta Haters’ mission is to unlock global clothing resale, aiming to reduce waste and work towards a closed loop. A platform is in development where online retailers will be able to resale their collections and where second-hand stores are given the opportunity to expand their businesses.
The Pasta Haters launches an iOS app in September. Until then, visit the event at Södra Teatern in Stockholm this Friday, 3 June between 5-8pm where the company have partnered up with second hand stores such as Lisa Larsson, Beyond Retro and Modern Retro. Get your ticket here.
