With doing good at the core of all that we do, we are more than just a business. We strive to support others in making sustainable and positive changes in the world, but it is our customers who make it all possible.
We don't want to be just another business — we’re in it for the earth.
All our books are second-hand, from users who have traded in their books with us and from partners that we work with. By choosing Thryft, you choose to reduce paper waste and to give used books a new life. After all, stories don’t grow old.
With more than 265 million kilograms of plastic packaging disposed of locally in 2018 alone, we commit to reducing packaging waste however we can. Our packaging is plastic-free: all books are individually wrapped with care using repurposed paper.
For books that we receive but do not meet our minimum selling conditions, we recycle them responsibly. So far, we have recycled 188kg of books, saving 128 gallons of oil, 4982 litres of water, and 3 trees.
We believe that a sustainable ecosystem can only be created with socially resilient communities.
Partnering with different non-profit organisations on a quarterly basis, Thryft donates 10% of profits from every purchase to support efforts in tackling urgent environmental or social issues.
Consisting of books that are donated by like-minded organisations or individuals, 50% of profits from the sales of our “Books for Charity” collection goes toward a social organisation.
As a “Partner for Change”, non-profit organisations list their books on the Thryft platform at no cost, with 100% of the profits from these books going directly back to them.
Together, we hope to be a sustainable ecosystem, by the people, for the people.
