In collaboration with thredUP and Conscious Commerce

Olivia Wilde has teamed up with thredUP for a sustainable capsule collection of apparel just in time for Earth Day. Along with Conscious Commerce, which the actress co-founded with Babs Burchfield, Wilde has collaborated on designs, printed across broken-in vintage tees and a denim jacket, boasting phrases that celebrate secondhand shopping.

Wilde shared in a press release, "I love secondhand and the work thredUP is doing to keep clothing in use longer. Our 'Choose Used' collaboration is all about celebrating and de-stigmatizing used clothing to cut the waste and create a more sustainable fashion future."

If you haven't warmed up to the idea of shopping secondhand yet, this collection is a cute opportunity to do so. There's plenty of silhouettes and all of the retro graphics feature slogans you'd find lining the tables of your favorite stores. Just, these ones are way more friendly to the environment, and keep from adding the used tees to the 26 billion pounds of textiles that are sent to the landfill each year.

"If everyone in the US bought just one used item instead of new in 2019, it would save nearly 6B pounds of carbon emissions—the equivalent of taking half a million cars off the road for one year," the press release shares, which means that snagging just one of these tees could have a big impact. As well, a portion of proceeds from the collection also go to The Circular Fashion Foundation, which supports international sustainability efforts in fashion.

Check out a few of our favorite items from the collection below. Shop the entire "Choose Used" collab and learn more about the textile waste crisis over at thredUP.

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
