About Us

Launched officially in September 2014, the West Island Clothing Initiative, a division of Biocchi Enterprises, is a for-profit company created by owner Marcello Biocchi, a life-long Pierrefonds and West Island resident. Biocchi has been in business since 2004 and has built a very successful used clothing recycling company operating on several levels. Along the way he discovered that the majority of clothing being donated by West Island residents was not, in any way, benefiting their own community. He found this to be very concerning and set out to develop a concept to change things. After over 5 years of intense research and planning, the West Island Clothing Initiative was born. A fully transparent, West Island based, clothing recycling and fund-raising company.


Because of our for-profit status, we are able to pay a proceed for every bag we receive to either West Island Community Shares or to one of our West Island based non-profit organization partners involved in a fund-raising program with us.

Now, for the first time, West Island residents will know who their clothing donations are helping support and be assured that it will be West Island based causes that will be benefiting from their generosity and environmental responsibility.
