Yes. According to the CDC, COVID-19 is unlikely to be transmitted through manufactured goods or packages: “In general, because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures.”
Even still, the shipping and handling process likely encompasses the exchange between multiple delivery carriers, so we recommend maintaining diligence through safe practices such as hand washing.
With the situation changing day to day, we are actively managing and monitoring the effects of COVID-19 on shipping and other business fulfillment services. Currently, shipping services are continuing as usual, with slight delays on a case-by-case basis.
Thrift Collective works to ship your orders the day you place them, ensuring your items are delivered quickly and handled with care. However, as this is a difficult time for everyone, please hang with us as unforeseen circumstances potentially disrupt our everyday operations.
The best way to donate your clothing right now remains at donation centers and thrift stores. Lines have been long and some places are requiring appointments but it is still important to make sure you are not throwing away clothing directly.
Many brands are refusing to pay up for orders that have already been manufactured overseas, meaning billions of dollars have been withheld from garment workers. It is important to do your research before buying to make sure that your favorite brands are taking care of everyone involved in their business.
