- 75 lbs of CO2e to produce the average pair of jeans.
- 700 gallons of water to make one new T-shirt.
- 1 in 2 people are throwing their unwanted clothes straight in the trash. The result? 64% of the 32B garments produced each year end up in landfill.
But if everyone bought one item “pre-loved” instead of new this year, it would save:
- 5.7B lbs of CO2e
- = 66M trees planted
- 25B gallons of water
- = 1.25B showers
- 449M lbs of waste
- = 18,700 garbage trucks full
And this is why our team at Closet Cupid believes:
“SHOPPING PRE-LOVED IS THE FUTURE OF FASHION.” ❤︎
