Some parts of modern life are, at this point, widely known to cause environmental harm – flying overseas, using disposable plastic items, and even driving to and from work, for example. But when it comes to our clothes, the impacts are less obvious.

As consumers worldwide buy more clothes, the growing market for cheap items and new styles is taking a toll on the environment. On average, people bought 60% more garments in 2014 than they did in 2000. Fashion production makes up 10% of humanity’s carbon emissions, is the second-largest consumer of the world’s water supply, and pollutes the oceans with microplastics.

What’s more, 85% of all textiles go to the dump each year. And washing some types of clothes sends thousands of bits of plastic into the ocean.


Buying from and selling with Flashback will avoid up to 82% of CO2 emissions and the water footprint associated with the production of clothing that requires large amounts of raw materials.

Our packaging is sustainable and we send everything in 1 box to reduce fuel emissions emitted with multiple packages.

We also can help you recycle items that are not sellable anymore.
