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%.

In 2009, our co-founder & CEO James Reinhart realized he had a closet full of clothes he didn’t wear. He wasn’t alone. He knew there was value in those clothes, and “looking back at that moment, I certainly didn’t appreciate how that insight could eventually upend how we look at innovation in retail, the apparel industry, and our environment.” We’re an online consignment & thrift store, where you can constantly refresh your style while creating less waste.

At ThredUP, we created a smarter way to shop and sell. We deliver a modern resale experience on one of the largest online platforms for women’s and kids’ secondhand apparel, providing a fun and convenient place to shop and clean out your closet. The circular closet, powered by proprietary technology. We’re able to process and recirculate clothing at an extraordinary speed and scale, all in support of sustainable fashion, freer closets, and a better world. thredUP does good for people and the planet. We give new life to millions of used clothes, offsetting the environmental and financial cost of fashion.

We’ve made it our job to educate consumers and bring awareness to the global fashion waste crisis. We created a first-of-its-kind carbon calculator to help consumers understand how their fashion habits contribute to climate change. Our industry report highlights the rapidly emerging resale economy, which is estimated to grow to $36 billion by 2024, and includes a fashion waste analysis that shines a light on the global issues of overproduction, disposable fashion culture, and single-use fashion. We teamed up with designer Zero Waste Daniel to create an upcycled collection made entirely from secondhand garments and fabric scraps.

thredUP’s customers get to shop the closets of their favorite celebrities and influencers, and thrift gets a celeb-endorsed popularity boost. We believe our impact can be amplified when we join forces with the broader fashion industry. thredUP is powering resale for some of the world’s leading fashion retailers and brands, like Walmart, Madewell, and Reformation.
