Recycling and the hidden cost of cheap clothing — 2 Comments

  1. I liked that you said that one thing to consider when buying clothing is to purchase quality material in order to save money and be able to wear it for a long time. I have been thinking about buying second-hand clothing to cut down the cost upfront. I will be sure to consider buying quality clothing instead of in order to save money in the long run.

  2. Thanks, Ashley,
    Buying second-hand clothes makes great environmental sense in addition to saving you money. If a thrift store, such as Good Will, participates in fabric recycling, the cheapest quality donations never make it to the sales floor. In any case, you can make sure that you buy good quality at a thrift store almost as easily as you can choose good quality at retail.
