Do Good

Join thredUP in our mission to slow down harmful textile waste by extending the life of every garment.

Did you know that 26 billion pounds of clothing are sent to the landfill each year, and that selling donating a used garment extends its life on average by 2.2 years, reducing its carbon, waste, and water footprint by 73%.

Americans now buy 5 times as much clothing as they did in 1980 and between 1999 and 2009, the volume of textile trash rose by 40%.
