A world with zero waste where everyone has what they need to thrive.
To rehome preloved items to reduce waste and empower global communities, in partnership with Gulf for Good.
Our profits will be donated to charitable causes, namely www.gulf4good.org, who help children around the world through health, education and housing. Our initiative is approved by the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department, license number 3223.
Since we are in the start up phase, we currently ensure that at least 50% of the funds raised go to charity, which is in line with thrift store models internationally. We are endeavouring to make this as high as possible, however, and are going to great lengths to keep our expenses as low as possible. Want to help us with this? Please consider becoming a sponsor and contact us for more information.
We are committed to zero waste: we rehome everything (including repairing/recycling items), we offset our carbon emissions through TreeNation, and we use sustainable packaging. When we need to purchase something, we buy it second hand.
We want to encourage and grow the second hand market and can only do this by working together. When possible, we sell in bulk and through our partners. When needed, we donate items.
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 donate your used items (once we have fundraising approval), shop sustainable fashion, and volunteer to help us sort and sell.
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.
