Where fashion meets sustainability

Saving money and the planet

By shopping and donating at The Salvation Army Thrift Store, you are doing more than looking fabulous – you are making a direct impact on our environment through reuse and recycling.


Together, we made a tangible impact last fiscal year. Here’s how:

Over 79.8 million lbs diverted from local landfills

The average weight of an adult Canadian is 171 lbs, which means that the weight of clothing and household items we diverted is equal to 466,879 adult Canadians. That’s more than the population of London, Surrey, or Halifax!1

This diversion resulted in:

133,989 Kilolitres

of water saved

809,365 Tonnes

of carbon emissions displaced 

Which is equivalent to:

37,173,898 trees


175,949 cars

removed from the road

Explore our Impact Report to see how we are contributing to the circular economy, caring for our neighbors, and thrifting our way to a sustainable future for all, together.
