In an age when cheap clothes and fast fashion have led to a throwaway mentality, when things go out of style before you even knew they were in, secondhand shopping is a shining beacon of light.
It’s time we take responsibility for our actions. Shop with purpose. Thrifting is gentler on the environment by reducing pollution and waste.
