An idea worth spreading: Not buying new clothes was presented as a TED Talk by designer Jessi Arrington. Here’s why Jessi shops at thrift stores and flea markets:
- To reduce her impact on our environment and her wallet.
- To meet all kinds of great people.
- To support a good cause.
- To dress in a unique way.
Jessi says “shopping at thrift stores is like a personal treasure hunt.”
So true! You never know what you’ll find.
Another great reason to buy used clothes… You don’t have to worry or wonder about how something will ‘wash up,’ because it’s already been through the ringer (or at least a washer). Check out Jessi’s TED talk:
