For the Community

Our Initiatives

Through our three social initiatives, we aim to bridge the gaps between consumption and doing good. This way, whether you are donating your books, trading-in for other titles, or simply making a purchase, every step of your journey with Thryft makes a difference.

Sustainability Pledge

We make all your purchases go further. Partnering with different non-profit organisations on a quarterly basis, Thryft donates 10% of our profits to support efforts in tackling urgent environmental or social issues.

Books for Charity

We often receive books that are donated by like-minded individuals who share our vision of social sustainability. Thryft gives 50% of profits from the sales of all donated to a social organisation.

Partners for Change

Non-profit organisations get to list their books on the Thryft platform at no cost, with 100% of all profits from these books going directly back to them. Making a difference takes time, and this is our way of building meaningful long-term partnerships.
