GREEN EILEEN creates a "third life" for donated items that are not appropriate for resale.
Through a series of hands-on workshops, fabrics and materials are re-purposed, turning what
might otherwise be headed to the landfill into beautiful, new value items.

Chop Challenge | October 3, 5-8pm
Every year, we challenge local artists and designers in our community to create something completely different from our collection of damaged EILEEN FISHER clothing. Join us as we showcase these creations with an auction benefitting SEEDArts. This event is free and open to the public.

Not-Quite-Perfect Sale | October 17, 10-2pm
Our recycling team goes through hundreds of damaged EILEEN FISHER clothes every month, but there are some that they just can't bring themselves to "chop". This sale will feature those pieces that are slightly damaged, but too nice to toss aside. All clothing priced at $30 or below.
