The Closet is Australia’s largest online fashion thrift store. We resell second hand clothes, shoes, and fashion accessories on behalf of Australian girls and women at our online thrift shop. During our first 18 months of operating our online thrift store, we have listed more than 4,000 second hand fashion items on our online thrift store and processed more than 15,000 kg of used fashion items.
It is our mission to help reduce the devastating impact of non-sustainable fashion consumption by:
Every day, billions of us buy clothes, shoes, and handbags with not a single thought about where they came from or where they will go to once we have used them a few times or very often, not worn them at all. The statistics relating to the consumption of fashion are staggering.
We are killing our world. Quoting legendary campaigner, Sir David Attenborough, at a recent UN summit on climate change, ““Right now we are facing a manmade disaster of global scale, our greatest threat in thousands of years: climate change,” he said. “If we don’t take action, the collapse of our civilisations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon.”
More people buying and wearing second hand means less waste. If many people make small changes, the combined effect will be positive. We simply need to produce less, buy less, and throw away less.
Do your bit. Take cate of your garments and shoes. Wear them longer and recycle.
Buying second hand fashion in Australia has never been this easy.
