By taking part in the Down & Dirty Obstacle Race, Eco Thrift employees proudly support Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit organization that supports active duty military members, veterans, first responders, and wounded warriors and their caregivers. Operation Gratitude annually sends 250,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene products, handmade items, plus personal letters of appreciation. After the mud run event, Eco Thrift employees took part in a shoe donation drive through Shoes For A Cause, a charity that collects and distributes shoes to people without them. This daily necessity protects the dignity, health, and safety of the people who receive a pair.
Recycling has been one of the biggest parts of EcoThrift's business, and has been since the company was founded in 1982! Check out this chart that shows how much recycling we did last year: We've recycled over 5 million clothing items, almost 500,000 shoes, and almost 5 million other items!
Bona fide "thrift store junkie" Phoebe has a knack for finding amazing fashion deals at local thrift stores! Phoebe posts photos and writes about her amazing thrift store discoveries on her blog, The Dress Fiend. And EcoThrift is one of her regular bargain stomping grounds! Phoebe was featured on Good Day Sacramento where she displayed some of the trendy new outfits she was able to put together from her latest thrift store runs — and she even gives a shout-out to EcoThrift at the end! As she says in the video, plaid is all the rage this season, and Phoebe “wants a girl to have a plaid outfit for every occasion!”
Check out the full video at Good Day Sacramento! Hopefully she’ll inspire you to start a thrift store fashion adventure of your own at your nearest EcoThrift store. Thrift store fashion helps you look good, save money, and help the environment and charity organizations at the same time!
