Intersecting Sustainability and Accessible Shopping
Date & Time
Thursday, July 28, 2022, 3:20 PM - 3:40 PM
Shilla Kim-Parker Colin Daniels

New apparel production is a leading contributor to global warming and pollution, requiring as much as a thousand gallons of water to make a single item. Buying second-hand reduces the environmental impact of clothing by 75 percent. Enter Thrilling, a platform launched in November 2018 for second-hand and vintage boutiques with the goal of making shopping more exciting, modern and above all, accessible.

In this session, Thrilling’s CEO and Co-founder, Shilla Kim-Parker will explore why it is important at the industry level to promote eco-friendly clothing, to understand e-commerce versus wholesale, and why shopping vintage should become a more familiar part of anyone’s shopping experience.
