We believe in doing well,
by doing good.

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.

For the Planet

We don't want to be just another business — we’re in it for the earth. 

Second-hand Books

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.

Plastic-free Packaging

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.

For the People

We believe that a sustainable ecosystem can only be created with socially resilient communities.

Sustainability Pledge

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.

Books for Charity

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.

Partners for Change

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.
