Planet Vintage is not only dedicated to helping you find second-hand pieces that you love to wear, but to saving our planet, too. That's why we donate 10% of profits to WWF-New Zealand (World Wide Fund for Nature), whose overarching mission is to “conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth”, focusing their work efforts around six areas: food, climate, freshwater, wildlife, forests, and oceans.
But it’s not just us who are helping do our part for the planet. When you choose to shop vintage, you’re shrinking your carbon footprint by limiting the number of natural resources it takes to manufacture brand new clothing. When you choose to shop vintage over the new and mass-produced, you’re saying no to supporting corporations who exploit the human rights of vulnerable workers with low wages and poor working conditions. When you choose to shop vintage, you’re choosing a more sustainable, circular economy, and our planet thanks you for it.
