***The RealReal developed its sustainability calculator in order to quantify the environmental savings (greenhouse gasses, energy & water) gained since January 1st, 2012 from the sale and purchase of previously owned men's and women’s suiting, pants, dresses, tops, knitwear, jackets and outerwear across the consignment platform as compared to the environmental costs of manufacturing those same or similar products for the first time. The RealReal does not own the production supply chain for items sold on consignment, nor does it have access to actual fabrics, dyes, weaves and production techniques used in the production and manufacture of those products. Furthermore, the breadth and diversity of items — spanning type, brand, fabric and size — required the application of averages and assumptions as to greenhouse gasses, energy and water usage in the manufacture of the items it compared and analyzed. The RealReal applied the industry-accepted displacement rate of 30% as outlined in wrap’s Benefits of Reuse Case Study, reflecting the assumption that for every item purchased on The RealReal, 1/3 of that was not newly manufactured and so lessened the environmental cost of the item by 1/3 as opposed to buying it new. Displayed product-level calculations reflect estimates made for the respective item group and do not represent precise estimates for that specific product. Over time, The RealReal will apply industry learnings and refine methodology and calculations to achieve maximum accuracy, which may result in changes in stated item impacts. The methodology to estimate the environmental impact of The RealReal’s products was reviewed by an esteemed group of sustainability experts. Their feedback was integrated into the final tool and methodology. The RealReal would like to provide a special thank you to these experts for providing their time and expertise:
-- Camille Gillet, Make Fashion Circular, Ellen MacArthur Foundation
-- Michael Sadowski, Sustainability Consultant
-- Eliot Metzger, Senior Associate at World Resources Institute (WRI)
The RealReal retained Shift Advantage, Inc., a sustainability consultancy, to develop its environmental impact calculator.
