Get Involved: Join Way Out West's Circular Workwear Initiative!

Join us as our partner on our journey towards circular volunteer shirts at Way Out West. We’re seeking black t-shirts, new or second-hand, to repurpose for our cause. Got excess stock or imperfect shirts? Partner with us to make a difference in event sustainability.


We who organize Way Out West always try to find new ways to work more sustainably as festival organizers. Over the years, we have taken many steps in the right direction – in 2012, we became completely vegetarian, in 2015 we ditched milk, since 2022 we have been organizing the climate meeting Greentopia together with Svensk Live, and we work closely with our waste management partner Renova to optimize recycling from the festival.


As part of our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, last year we created a circular merchandise collection together with Göteborgs Stadsmission and F/ACT Movement, aiming both to reduce our own emissions associated with our festival merch, as well as to challenge the image of what classic festival merch actually looks like.


We are now looking for t-shirts that for various reasons cannot be sold to customers, perhaps they have the wrong color or minor stitching errors. We are also interested in second-hand t-shirts, provided they are in decent condition, in a uniform color, and available in larger quantities. Do you have a large quantity of black t-shirts that need to find a new owner? Do you want to be our partner on our journey towards circular volunteer shirts at Way Out West and at the same time help influence the rest of the event industry towards more sustainable choices?


– Black t-shirts without prints
– Good Condition
– Round neckline
– All sizes acceptable


Are you interested in helping us? Contact Kimmie Winroth at [email protected]. We need access to the material by April 30th. As part of the effort towards 100% circular volunteer shirts, we will also, together with Wargön Innovation, explore how to introduce resource-efficient textiles into the event industry on a larger scale, thereby reducing the need for new purchases.
