Climate Change Is Not Real | ThredUP Project RE:Made
This post is in partnership with ThredUP. All thoughts and opinions are mine. Thank you for supporting me and the brands that I truly love!
You all know how much I love a good thrift find, ThredUP being my favorite secondhand shop. I've raved about them before and it's not only because of their care in choosing products for their shop, amazing customer service, or user friendly site and app. I also love what they stand for.In celebration of Earth Day, ThredUP asked 12 inspiring and talented artists to create their take on the statement "Climate Change Is Not Real" through art. In hopes to spark conversation about the earth and climate change, ThredUP printed their designs on 1,000 secondhand t-shirts that are available for purchase.
Fashion is one of the most polluting industries in the world. By printing designs on secondhand t-shirts instead of producing new, ThredUP has made it possible for shoppers to reduce their carbon, waste and water use by 73% per shirt. That's an amazing number.
“Giving garments a second life is at the heart of what we do at thredUP and Project re:made embodies just that. By using secondhand tees as a canvas for artists to express their beliefs, we hope to inspire environmental change and turn art into action”.
- Jenna Bray [ThredUP's Head of Brand]
Making A Difference
100% of the t-shirt sale proceeds go directly to Cool Effect. They are a non-profit environmental organization that funds carbon projects across the globe with the promise "carbon done correctly."I'm aware that it can be challenging to go green sometimes. I'm not perfect either, but if we all choose to make a small change, it can make a huge impact. Think about it. Here's a roundup of some great eco-friendly bloggers that have chosen to leave their green footprints.Shop Climate Change T-shirts Here! #secondhandfirstLearn more about project re:made and why we should ponder the environment through this ThrEDIT blog post!
