Buying pre-owned clothing can have a positive impact on the environment and your community, in addition to saving you money.
- Reduces Pollution: From transportation to the manufacturing process, the use of water, dyes, petroleum, and toxic chemical byproducts threaten the land, air, and waterways, especially in developing countries where clothing is often produced. Choosing to limit your demand for new clothing or fast fashion, will reduce your contribution to consumption. You will also save clothing from being dumped in landfills, where it may take years to decompose. Fashion is one the largest polluters in the world!
- Promotes Recycling: When you share your hip clothing consignment finds with your friends and family, or on social media, you encourage others to do the same. More people will be inspired to buy pre-owned apparel and extend the fabric’s life span.
- Helps the Community: Consignment stores allow customers to buy name brand children’s clothing at affordable prices. When you have multiple kids, saving money isn’t always easy, so every bit helps. You also have the opportunity to partner with consignment shops and sell your old clothing. When it sells, you will receive a percentage of the sale price.
