OUR MISSION To rehome preloved items to reduce waste and help children around the world, in partnership with Gulf for Good. REDUCING WASTE When it comes to reducing waste, we exist to turn the clothing industry on its head. Currently, an estimated 150 billion clothes are produced each year, more than ever before. The resources of water, land, dyes, chemicals, plastic etc that go into each piece means an incredible strain on our environment. The clothing industry is the 3rd biggest carbon emitting industry just behind gas and food. What is more, the human side is often a sad story in clothing production, with low wages in poor conditions and often child labour too. What makes it even worse is that 3/5th of these new clothes make their way into the landfill by the end of one year, either by the brand or individuals themselves. These often make their way into developing countries and are creating large negative socio-economical and environmental impacts. Every piece of textile can be rehomed, upcycled, or recycled and that is what we aim to do. We are zero waste and process everything that comes through our doors. We want to change the way Dubai interacts with fashion, to not only have access to preloved clothing, but to choose second hand first! HELPING CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD We donate 100% of our profits to the children’s charity projects of Gulf for Good under Islamic Affairs Fundraising Approval. We work with Gulf for Good to fund projects that sustainable change children’s lives around the world in the areas of poverty alleviation, health and education. Once we fully fund a project, we start in on the next. Please see more information on our current and historical projects to date here. We do everything we can to keep our expenses low to contribute more to the kids. This is why we rely on volunteers and sponsors to achieve our mission. We aim to donate 50% of our monthly revenues. OUR VISION A sustainable world where everyone has what they need to thrive. OUR VALUES Zero Waste We are committed to zero waste: we rehome everything (including repairing/recycling items in partnership with Kiswa), we offset our carbon emissions through TreeNation, and we use sustainable biodegradable packaging. When we need to purchase something, we buy it second hand. Community We want to encourage and grow the preloved market and can only do this by working together. What is more, Thrift for Good is powered by a large group of volunteer supporters. It’s only thanks to you that we can succeed – please clear out your used items, shop sustainable fashion, and volunteer to help us sort and sell. Joy What better feeling is there than finding that perfect cheap thrift find? Perhaps a peace-inspiring decluttered house? Or, better yet, knowing you’ve made a difference in the lives of others? This value of joy is more than a customer satisfaction guarantee; we want to touch lives – yours and the lives of the children we will support.
