The tool helps customers learn about the impact behind their shopping and clothing care habits. It also educates consumers on the actions they can take to lower their carbon footprint and have more sustainable habits. After a year of conducting research and analyzing data on clothing chain supply cycles, Green Story built this tool with ThredUp to deliver an interactive and fun way for consumers to learn about their fashion footprint.

Green Story is being recognized as the research firm that supported the creation of this tool. The Fashion Footprint Calculator earned media attention from established publications like CNN Business (external link) , Fast Company (external link) , Bustle (external link) , and more. Actress Emma Watson even shared the tool in an Instagram post (external link) !
