It may not always be glamorous but secondhand and thrift shopping is a wonderful option for creating less waste. Today I’m talking about the WHY and the HOW of thrift shopping. We’ll talk about the marketing of buying (you’re being marketed to whether you like it or not), why secondhand shopping is important for the waste stream, and I’ll answer all your questions. Everything from bed bugs and sanitizing to buying secondhand animal products as a vegan. I’m even spilling the beans on where I shop and how to get in there and find what you like.
Mentioned on the Show:
➜Sustainably Sourced Underwear: I like the Everlane underwear as they ship plastic free, are almost all cotton, and can be sourced to the factory they were made in. Hara the Label also offers great options people rave over.
➜Pinterest: All thrifting trips start with this Pinterest board for me. If you’re inspired and know what you’re looking for you’ll have much better luck finding what you want in the store.
➜How to Thrift Like a Pro: This post outlines all the basics you need to go in and kill it at the thrift store.
