Sustainability has long been a topic in fashions circles, asking those interested in getting dressed to investigate their practices of shopping. And while there are certainly brands who operate sustainably, one primary practice remains supreme in terms of reducing one’s carbon footprint and getting the most use out of the garments that are already circulating: thrifting.
Throughout the pandemic, numerous new avenues for buying recycled clothing have emerged, opening up new possibilities outside of just going to your local Goodwill. Thrift2Death is an NYC-based thrift pop up market and meet up community, started last year by Treysaun McGeachy and cofounder Christain Neils. We spoke to Treysaun ahead of the first summer Thrift2Death event of the year, which will be taking place this Saturday, May 14th outside of Slope Vintage at 71 5th Ave in Brooklyn.
