Thrifting: Should I get into it?
Thrifting what is it?
Thrifting is an enjoyable experience for all people. It is a way of giving old clothes that no longer fit or no longer like to places like charity shops or thrift stores. This then gives other people the chance to buy your old clothes. Thrifting is a sustainable and easy way of helping the environment. Not only does it help the environment but many of these thrift stores go to charity shops where anything bought there the money would go towards that specific charity. Out of this you will be helping the environment and many charities too!
What does thrifting look like?
Why should I get into thrifting?
Stores can have many discontinued items meaning you can find a lot of goods.
Also fashion takes up around 10% of humanity's carbon emissions and dries up water sources whilst polluting our waters. If we recycle our clothes like thrifting we reduce the pollution of clothing.
Reasons to thrift
1) Helping Charities- Many charities profit off of thrift stores meaning that when you buy from their shops 100% of the money made goes towards that charities
2) To save money- Thrift stores are cheap due to the clothes and items being second hand however many people also bring in items that haven't been used and are at a discounted price!
3) Re sell items for profit- Many entrepreneurs start here by purchasing goods from thrift stores and selling them a little higher than the price they originally bought.
The average American throws away 81 pounds of clothing PER YEAR!
Giving used clothing a second chance is reducing the 26 million pounds going into landfills by keeping the clothing in circulation
Overall you should give thrifting a shot. You never know what treasures you may find along the way. As well as helping the environment. Think about your own old clothes give them to a local thrift store or charity shop.
