The Impact Of BLM Movement + COVID: One Business Owners Story

Rendered Inc. is a sustainable fashion brand founded by Saba Tshibaka in 2018 when she was a sophomore in college. She never planned on turning her love for thrifting into a sustainable business, but that's what happened. She thrifted so well that she started to thrift for friends by finding unique, comfortable, and affordable clothing while also reselling items, often making 300% profit in the process. Saba is also an environmental activist who educates her community on the long-term benefits of sustainability. She teaches her community how to use their buying power to make a positive impact on the world.

Saba said, "I decided that I wanted to focus on sustainability and sustainability awareness because getting clothes from the thrift store is inherently sustainable because you're recycling, but at the same time there's a lot that you're doing with your dollars, and you're really making them stretch in the right way because we believe that the less that you buy from the people manufacturing the clothes the less that they'll make and the world will become cleaner because they're not using as many of the resources up."
