If your idea of relaxation is unwinding with your favourite book, but you frown on spending a bomb on your next title, look no further! At Thryft, you can pick from a selection of over 100 affordable pre-loved titles to bring home while saving the Earth!
Thryft is Singapore’s first sustainable bookstore, selling pre-loved publications at up to 70% off their original retail prices. These books, donated by book lovers, undergo stringent quality checks by staff before being made available for purchase.
Thryft’s recycling and reselling model helps extend the shelf life of second-hand books, allowing them to be bought and used again, reducing book wastage. This model also means that the books are incredibly affordable, so you get to take home a new read from just $3 while contributing to Thryft’s mission for more sustainable reading culture in Singapore!
Books that do not clear Thryft’s quality checks are donated to non-profit organisations via Thryft’s Books for Charity and Partners for Change programmes. Thryft also donates 10% of its profits to organisations committed to tackling environmental issues.
So whether you’re a hardcore bookworm looking for a good deal or just someone rethinking their consumption habits, Thryft is the place to be!
Thryft fans can look forward to Thryft’s Book Fair, happening from 6 to 7 March 2021 at City Sprouts and featuring over 2000 titles across all genres.
