    Pledge Plato's Closet and earn a $1,000 Scholarship
    Our Story:
    At Plato's Closet Columbia, we live and breathe the ideals of "reduce, reuse, and recycle" every day.
    *We sell high quality, gently used clothing and accessories.
    Reusing clothing and accessories reduces the consumption of raw materials and energy required to produce new goods.  Reducing distant and costly shipping from big brand "factory fashion" also saves fuel
    *We keep cash local.
    We pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to our customers for the clothes they sell each year.  We create jobs and contribute to income taxes.  We're also locally owned and operated.  All of this contributes to the local economy and keeps cash circulating within the community.
    Long story short, we're passionate about community involvement and sustaining the green economy.  That's where you come in.
    Tell us how you've made a difference--at home, at school, or in the community.  Did you start a project?  Are you part of a team?  Maybe you made a difference individually.  Send us a one-page summary (because you've got better things to do than write some lengthy essay about the things you've already done!) Bonus points if you tell us how you've helped to "reduce, reuse or recycle":)
