Second Serve Resale strives to lower consumption of new clothing by promoting the benefits of resale.
This nonprofit organization was founded in Westerly, RI, by a dedicated team of volunteers, Amy Hebb, Susan Demovick, and Patti Ghezzi, who were fed up with the fast fashion industry and the increasing amount of wasted clothing. They took note that resale was becoming a big business, and then asked the question, “Could resale profits be redirected to nonprofit organizations?” And that’s just what Second Serve does– they sell donated clothes and contribute a whopping 85% of the proceeds to their nonprofit partners.
In June 2023, the Westerly Land Trust was invited to be a beneficiary of Second Serve’s good work. It is a win for everyone—you get beautiful *like-new* clothes (some still have tags), landfills stay a little less full, and WLT forges ahead in our conservation work, protecting more than 1,700 acres and 25 miles of hiking trails.

Thank you for your mindful and intentional clothing shopping!
Gray Goose Cookery, owned and operated by Suzanne and Bob Lane and located at 93 Watch Hill Road, is a one stop cooking shop where you’ll find every kitchen tool imaginable and a particularly generous deal: if you make a donation to the Westerly Land Trust while at their shop, they will sharpen your knives for free! Sharp knives are safe knives, so be sure to bring yours to Gray Goose Cookery at any point in the year (but this is particularly important around the turkey carving holidays). Bon appetit!
