Growing up in Ghana, Joshua Akom relied on second-hand clothing. Now, living in Canada, the entrepreneur says thrift shopping doesn’t just make economic sense, but it can also help the planet survive. In 2016, he met Oghosa Ogiemwonyi, who always loved the thrifted clothing Akom now chose to wear as an adult. When the pandemic shut down thrift stores, the two saw an opportunity, one that would feed their love of fashion and help stem the clothing industry’s environmental impact. They co-founded Thrift some, an online thrift store that allows Canadians to make more sustainable fashion choices.
