World Environment Day Tile Option 1 (I).jpg

It’s World Environment Day, thrifters! And we’ve got lots going on to celebrate. But first, we want to thank you for choosing used and helping to make the world a cleaner, greener place for us all to enjoy. Fashion is one of the most polluting industries in the world (right up there with oil), and one of the best things we can do is consume less and reuse more.

Here’s the facts:
-Fashion will drain a quarter of the world’s carbon budget by 2050.
-26 billion pounds of textiles are dumped into global landfill each year.
-A single T-shirt takes 700 gallons of water to produce.

Here’s what we can do:
-Consume less.
-Reuse more.
-Choose used.

In honor of World Environment Day, thredUP is donating 100% of today’s net proceeds from the Choose Used collection to the thredUP Circular Fashion Fund, dedicated to supporting sustainable fashion efforts worldwide. And we just released a reprint of the most popular styles from the collection, so get yours TODAY!

PLUS, we made a video! For every public share or post on #chooseused, @thredUP will donate $1 to the thredUP Circular Fashion Fund. Now through 7/1.
