Thrift Flip’s mission is to convert outdated fashion and clothing into something that makes it feel like a brand new piece. We aim to stay sustainable, and prevent more clothing from being sent to the landfill. Browse our Tutorials page for step by step lessons on how to turn basic pieces into something that adds pizazz in your wardrobe. Scroll through our “Meet the Team” page to see the amazing faces behind this revolutionary idea.

Our Mission

According to Newsweek, 84 percent of all unwanted clothes end up in landfills, and the volume of clothing Americans throw away each year has doubled in the last 20 years, from 7 million to 14 million tons. We are constantly being mindful about making less of an environmental impact. We are looking at everything we can do to see if we can be using more sustainable materials, reduce waste and work more efficiently. We want to help each individual play their part in fashion, from advocating for thrifting to transforming their previous clothing into new styles.
