thredUP, an online resale platform, has launched the thredUP x Zero Waste Daniel Full Circle Collection, an upcycled holiday collection made entirely of secondhand clothes. The company partnered with “The Nanny” star and style icon, Fran Drescher, to bring the trash-to-treasure collection to life for the ultimate fashion throwback.
thredUP tasked sustainable fashion designer, Zero Waste Daniel, with creating a limited collection with affordable, eco-friendly and one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by Fran Drescher's signature style. The collection offers giftable items from pet beds and bowls, to scarves, bucket hats and scrunchies. Among the giftable categories, thredUP is selling an exclusive selection of “Nanny”-inspired looks.
“I love the ethos of this collection and working with thredUP and Zero Waste Daniel to create Fran Fine-approved custom looks was a dream,” says Drescher. “This holiday season, it’s so important to consider buying gifts that are planet friendly and give back. This upcycled collection is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. It’s especially close to my heart because thredUP is donating a portion of proceeds to my organization, Cancer Schmancer.”
Zero Waste Daniel created all 1,000 pieces in New York City, using approximately 2,000 lbs. of textiles that could not otherwise be resold.

"Nowadays, it feels like sustainable is a word people slap on something to make it more expensive,” says Zero Waste Daniel. “My core belief is that everyone deserves to look and feel their best, and we all deserve a healthy planet too. I am so inspired by thredUP's mission and was eager to tackle and challenge industry norms, by making the sustainable option affordable. That's why it means so much to me that The Full Circle Collection can help you choose used for holiday gifting on a realistic budget. It's always a challenge to get price point and ethics to align, but with the magic of the holiday season and the endless inspiration that is Fran, we managed to upcycle literally thousands of garments, make everything here in New York City, pay our workers fairly and still have giftable items coming in as low as $10."
