How Thrifting Helps the Environment




Thrifting is recycling. By purchasing a gently used item, you’re helping to keep things in circulation that would have gone into a landfill. 


👕 Keeps Clothes Out of Landfills 

When clothes are thrown away, they sit in landfills for hundreds of years. When people donate clothes and shop secondhand, they’re playing a great role in keeping clothes out of landfills. 


👕 Contributes to Charities 

When you shop secondhand, you’re supporting a business that strives to help others. When we’re helping others, we’re helping the environment in some way as well.  


👕 Lowers Your Carbon Footprint 

The fashion industry is moving faster than ever, creating millions of clothing items every day to fill up the stores every week. When you buy secondhand, you’re preventing that massive waste of energy and resources on the production of new clothes. 


👕 Helps Preserve Water 

Water consumption is extremely high in every single stage of clothing production. A cotton t-shirt when made unsustainably, even simply growing one kilogram of cotton requires at least 10,000 liters of water. 


👕 Reduces Chemical Pollution 

Textile-manufacturing processes involve the use of harmful dyes and crude oil by-products. Shopping secondhand begins to eliminate the constant chemical pollution that results from clothing production.
