Great gems from sustainable sources at playful prices
Thriftify connects charity shops with consumers who care, helping to bring about a sustainable fashion movement while growing funding for great causes.
We are an online double-sided marketplace that helps charities realise the true value of unsold donated stock, including books, CDs, console games and fashion. We have taken all of the complexities and challenges of selling online and combined them to create the charity retail platform, which is available to charity retailers and other ethical enterprises who want to sell online. The software makes it simple for volunteers working in charity shops to decide whether the item could get a better value on the thriftify platform and to upload it.
Every year in the UK and Ireland, 150 billion items are donated to 15,000 charity shops with the list including books, clothes, furniture, electronics, jewellery, games, DVD s and a whole lot more besides.
CRNI supports its members and works to mainstream reuse thanks to core funding provided by the EPA under the Circular Economy Programme.

CRNI’s Green + Social Virtual Trade Fair is funded by Ireland’s Regional Waste Management Plan Offices.
