Nonprofit Design House, East Downtown, Houston, #neighborhoodspotlight #movemetotx

Join us today as we meet with Ahshia Berry, VP of Communications and Sarah-Jayne Smith, CEO and Founder of Magpies and Peacocks. Magpies and Peacocks was started about 9 years ago with nothing but an assortment of donated clothes they collected from local women.

They are the nation’s only nonprofit design house and they are dedicated to the collection and sustainable reuse of post-consumer clothing, scrap textiles and accessories diverted from landfill. Their model rests on four pillars: Collaborate, Create, Educate and Invest.

They are always looking for more donations to continue furthering their mission and the sustainable cycle of clothing. If you would like to donate or would simply like to get more information on this design house, you can visit them at https://magpiesandpeacocks.org/
