What’s Up, Thrift Kings, Queens, & Themperors?!

Get ready to embark on a sustainable style safari at iconoCLAD, Salt Lake City’s treasure trove of thrifted wonders and secondhand gems! We’re not just any consignment store; we’re your eco-chic headquarters, where every purchase is a high-five to Mother Earth. We all know the buzz that finding a unique thrift find can bring and that’s just the beginning of all the benefits. Let’s dive into why scooping up some thrifted goodies from us is like hitting the jackpot for both your wardrobe and the planet.

The Lowdown on Fast Fashion: The Planet’s Party Pooper: Ever thought about where all those once-trendy clothes end up? Spoiler alert: a whole lot of them are partying it up in landfills every year, and trust us, it’s not the fun kind of party. Each year 92,000,000 tons of clothing are ending up in landfills. That’s 15,300,000 African Elephants worth (or 767,000,000,000 bananas for scale because the internet likes that). Also, the carbon emissions from creating and shipping new fashion pieces are like uninvited guests trashing our beautiful planet. The fashion industry contributes significantly to global carbon dioxide emissions. According to research by McKinsey, the sector was responsible for approximately 2.1 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2018, which is about 4% of the global total. Yikes!
