Why thrifting? Why choose second-hand clothing? Well, it’s no secret that fast fashion has shifted our minds to think that tossing clothes when they are out of style is a must. But today we are seeing a strong turn towards second-hand shopping. People now want to acquire the many eccentric pieces left behind to be given a new life and lose that toss-away mentality. Here are three reasons why you should consider thrifting:
1. Thrifting is better for your environment and community.
Thrifting is better for the environment by reducing waste and pollution. On average, a person throws away over 80 pounds of clothes per year which results in over billions of clothes going straight into landfills. By choosing to love second-hand clothing we are choosing to decrease environmental waste. Since the fashion industry is one of the largest polluters in the world, we can decrease our carbon footprint by choosing to purchase used clothing. It’s that simple. We are also benefiting our community through shopping locally and replenishing our economy.
2. Thrifting is better for your wallet.
Shopping second-hand can be way more affordable than shopping at mass retailers. Everyone wants to save money. Why not save money while shopping for clothes? There is no greater feeling than finding a second-hand clothing jewel for a fraction of the original cost. Often you will spend considerably less while shopping second-hand and contributing more to your wardrobe. It’s better for your overall budget and you’re adding pieces that can last in your closet for years to come.
3. Thrifting is better for your wardrobe.
