Together with Lieke Pijpers started to Thalita van Ogtrop, in 2013, The Next Closet is an online marketplace for second-hand designer clothes. This means that they have to fight one of the most polluting industries in the world: the fashion industry. The start-up, grew, and went on to have a antikraakschoolgebouw to its own office building in the heart of Amsterdam, with its own photography studio and a team of 25 people.
"We are now in just seven years of age. At that time, we will have 12.5 million bath tubs, with waste water is saved through the clothes a second life."
"At first, we didn't have the money for in terms of salary, to compete with companies such as booking.com but who are the talents we need." By being clear on the sustainability objectives of the company, they could still be motivated talent, with a tie, says Van Ogtrop.
"The funny thing is, that's Right, and I am originally from all of the mega is aimed at being sustainable, but the team is up to the power of ten. People will be really angry if, for example, is not the most hostingpartij to choose from."
"Every month we sit together to think about how other people can inspire you. This is not a mandatory meeting. Then there are the ideas of a merkenindex that tells you when you have a new sustainable clothing to buy, and a calculator that lets you see how much waste water you will save, with a piece of clothing."
"no, No, that kind of thing may not provide immediate benefits. But my co-workers are pleased to work with, going the extra mile at work and not going to the competitor. In the long run is worth as much as an order of 10.000 euro, no crisis at all."
"I have done an internship with Gucci in Milan, italy. That will fit at all. The next stage was the foundation of the Business in Development Network, where we have entrepreneurs in the developing world to help it to grow. Not for them to do so, but they are empowering. It was my heart beat. I would like to contribute to a better planet."
"Sometimes I think I have to agree that designer? Well, that sounds quite thin in regards to the impact, it's not as if I'm in the " plastic soup to fix me. But the dress has to be the second-most polluting industry. I love helping people to have in their closet to clean out and stuff to sell. Be aware that if they have something new to buy, something that may be all that many more years of life. My mother, my brothers and sisters and close friends in the course of these seven years to come to shop and think about clothes. This is already in effect."
"It's like every year a new company is founded. Of the anti-squatting to have a permanent office, but interns will be to have a chart that has multiple layers of non-data-driven fully data-driven, but also have a remote to work with the new COLLECTIVE bargaining agreement and the corona."
"I like to think I have a quarter, a sort of mini heart attack you get. That's just it, I didn't see it coming at all. It helps tremendously to have a clear idea as to what I have to do a thing. And if you do it again solves the problem, but it is an incredible high. You will learn on an ongoing basis. Well, I don't want anything else, I am totally addicted to it."
