Stops Supporting Fast Fashion

Fast fashion is appealing to everyone and is the only thing that some people can afford. No matter you're price range for purchasing clothes, we all have bought from fast fashion companies before. However, the less we buy from them the better off our planet will be. Workers who make clothes are underpaid and underworked. Their work environments are poor quality as well. If you happen to see something that might be found second hand, look into those options!

Finding Unique Pieces

All thrift stores have unique pieces! My favorite place to go is DEPOP! There are thousands of shops to scroll through and they have some awesome clothing pieces! Whatever you are looking for, I'm sure you can find it on DEPOP whether it's vintage or trendy! Plus, you don't even have to leave your house to buy second hand!

More Affordable
