Did you know?

The average person discards over 100 pounds of clothing per year, with 85 percent of that clothing ending up in the trash.

Not So Fun Fact

A single cotton t-shirt requires over 700 gallons of water, which is enough to supply an individual with drinking water for more than two years. The truth is that our current fashion system endangers both our planet and our people. A simple switch to buying secondhand will help to mitigate the impact of fashion.

A word from our founder

While there is still a lot of work to be done, there has been a shift in the perception of used clothing. In 2020 we saw a 27% increase in the sale of used clothing, coupled with a decrease in fast fashion manufacturing. Americans are trending toward more sustainable clothing and the planet will be grateful.
