There are so many benefits with buying used clothing.
For 1 new clothing nowadays is part of fast fashion. fast fashion sucks because they’re most likely made in sweatshops and the clothes are made of such poor quality that they’re designed to be thrown away in a limited amount of time.
Another reason why new clothing kind of sucks is that they are made with microplastics.
These microplastics go into our water system when you wash your new clothes in the washer machine.
And of course plastic will take like about a million freaking years to break down.
On the other side of the spectrum is used clothing. When you buy a new piece of clothing, you are letting a used piece of clothing stay in a thrift stop.
These clothes will eventually make their way to landfills.
Now I’m not saying don’t ever buy new clothing again because there are sustainable, green, zero-waste companies that make clothes.
However for the rest of this challenge I will be buying no more clothes that are new!
