At thredUP,

we believe in a sustainable fashion future. Thrifting is about more than just finding amazing deals on your favorite brands. It’s about shopping with intention, rejecting throwaway fashion culture, and standing for sustainability. The clothes we wear have the power to create change. Thrifting Can Help Solve the Fashion Waste Crisis Our love for constant newness has come at too high a price for our planet. Shopping secondhand reduces the cost of fashion by giving new life to used clothes. Resale moves us one step closer to a circular fashion future.  New clothing production is hurting the planet. One new garment takes 77 gallons of water and creates 17 lbs of CO2e. Over 100B garments are produced each year, which is 2X more than 15 years ago. 

Perfectly good clothing is being discarded. 1 in 2 people throw their clothes straight in the trash. 73% of apparel is sent to landfill or incinerated, 95% of which could be reused or recycled.

Extending the life of clothes fights fashion waste. Shopping secondhand displaces the need for new clothing production and diverts items from landfills. Buying one used item reduces its carbon, waste, and water footprints by 82%.
