Where fashion meets sustainability
Saving money and the planet
By shopping and donating at The Salvation Army Thrift Store, you are doing more than looking fabulous – you are making a direct impact on our environment through reuse and recycling.
Together, we made a tangible impact last fiscal year. Here’s how:
Over 79.8 million lbs diverted from local landfills
The average weight of an adult Canadian is 171 lbs, which means that the weight of clothing and household items we diverted is equal to 466,879 adult Canadians. That’s more than the population of London, Surrey, or Halifax!1
This diversion resulted in:
of water saved
of carbon emissions displaced
Which is equivalent to:
removed from the road
Explore our Impact Report to see how we are contributing to the circular economy, caring for our neighbors, and thrifting our way to a sustainable future for all, together.
