"I started Tomorrows after over a decade as a costume designer and stylist in the entertainment industry, wasting pounds of clothing and thousands of dollars by the minute. Out of my deep interest in solving this textile waste problem I began to study and teach textile sustainability in universities.
Then, when my twins were born, I instantly saw how quickly young children grow out of clothing, and how so many parents have an abundance of clothing in basement bins while others needed clothing for their rapidly growing kids. So I set out on a mission: To create a single solution to put the abundance of wasted used kid clothes back into the parent-ecosystem, keep it out of landfills, and generate the greatest value for each item. Enter Tomorrows.
To get the building blocks in place, I joined the top NYC retail tech accelerator. While in the program, I met Ashley, the numbers ying to my creative yang, who shared my frustration with how quickly kids grow in and our of their clothes. We joined forces, and together we created Tomorrows.
Tomorrows is built on the premise that great kids’ clothes shouldn’t cost us, or our kids, the planet. Which is why Tomorrows uses our outgrown kids’ clothes as currency for tomorrow’s purchases. We succeed when clothes get up and out of basement bins and back on our babes, keeping them in the family ecosystem and out of landfills.
We are currently building the platform for you, dear reader, to use! In the meantime, we hope to be your go-to source for ways to make your life as a parent more stylish and sustainable. Being a parent is hard enough. Getting great clothes for your kids doesn’t have to be." - Haley Lieberman
