If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the climate crisis, and unsure how to make a real impact, we have some good news. Yesterday, Emma Watson announced a new partnership with thredUP, an online consignment and thrift store that is officially doing more than reselling clothes: It now has a tool that calculates just how much your fashion habits impact the environment, based on what’s in your wardrobe. 

Watson shared the news in an Instagram post, saying, “Our closets impact the planet and climate more than you might realise, which is why I am proud to partner with @thredUP to launch their new Fashion Footprint Calculator (link in bio!) They created an easy to use tool, and I’m so excited to help people discover the carbon impact of their wardrobes, and steps you can take to lighten your fashion footprint.”
