What? A boutique whose heart is rooted in sustainable and style! If you are looking for 
ONE OF A KIND clothing AND a way to help the environment, this is your store!! 
"Opened in 2010 by Sanni Baumg√§rtner in Athens, Georgia, Community 
seeks to bring chic clothing to our clients while encouraging them to buy locally and 
sustainably. When entering the store, you’ll find an array of  redesigned
 vintage clothing and clothing handmade by local designers. 
We also offer women’s vintage clothing, shoes, and accessories." 


How do you sew sustainably? By producing products while diminishing/emitting 
as minimal pollutants as possible! The textile industry discharges toxic chemicals 
into the environment, uses pesticides and nonrenewable fabrics (such as synthetic 
polyesters and nylons), and consumes enormous quantities of energy. In contrast, 
sustainable clothing saves energy and natural resources. Sustainable textiles can 
range from pieces made from renewable or organic fibers, to vintage or re-used clothing.  

Where? 260 N Jackson Street in Athens 
When? Mon-Sat: 11am-6pm, Sun: 12-4pm
