2015 Annual Conference


Garson & Shaw proudly welcomed over 200 guests to the

6th Annual Conference on Textile Reuse and Recycling in Atlanta, GA on May 8, 2015.

This year, our focus was on worldwide Secondhand Trade. We invited graders and retailers from all the "corners" of the world to be our guest speakers. We learned about the current situations in the market with currency issues, political conflicts and wars that have affected the business over the past year.  Despite of these issues we still used the headline "Celebrating the World of Secondhand Clothes" because we wanted to illustrate how fantastic this business is and the benefits it brings to both people and the environment.
