Once a few people were concerned about the question: «What do people in Russia do with their unnecessary and unwanted things?». They found out that approximately 90% of stuff goes to trash. Because Russia did not have a well-functioning recycling system, we decided to create one! We want to give the unnecessary and unwanted items a new chance in someone else’s home! How does the shop work?

Every day at any time citizens may bring into the store absolutely anything that he/she doesn’t need anymore (from clothes to books). Things are sorted; about 90% of clothes are given to charity and 10% is sold in the store. The profit goes to two organizations in St. Petersburg: «Upsala Circus» , which works with children from social risk groups and NGO «НочлежкаFlophouse» , which helps the homeless.
