Westin Hotels Are Creating Pajamas Through Upcycling
When the Tulerie office hears the word 'upcycling' we get equally as excited as we do when Daily Provisions crullers show up in the morning. So when we saw today's article on WWD that the Westin Hotel & Resorts are creating a new upcycling program with the help of Clean the World, we were eager to learn more.
It all began when a housekeeping supervisor in Canada suggested repurposing the hotels used bed linens rather than sending them to landfills. The outcome: 2,000 pairs of pajamas after just five months of collecting sheets.
The program is know as “Project Rise: ThreadForward” and on April 16, you'll be able to help by purchasing a pair of these pajamas from Westin for $25, with 50% of the proceeds going to Delivering Good. Thank you Carolyn Thoroski.
Get your kiddo, niece, nephew, friends child their own pair here.
