National Thrift Shop Day
Brace yourself for a back-to-school thrift-splosion!
National Thrift Shop Day is August 17
Thrifters unite! National Thrift Shop Day is August 17 and to celebrate, Savers is challenging people to show they give a sh!rt by coming together to save 700 million gallons of water through one simple act: replacing one new T-shirt purchase with a thrifted one. If Savers gets 1 million people to choose a thrifted T-shirt in place of a new one, it’ll be the equivalent of saving over 1,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools full of water, before the first bell rings!
