Sustainability

At Thrift Collective, our vision is a world where we use what already exists before demanding that more be made. The fashion industry is riddled with systemic problems, but we are working to make a positive impact by making it easy for  secondhand stores to bring their inventory online.

The fashion industry needs to change its current approach
