Did you know by purchasing up-cycled clothing you're keeping them out of the landfill, which ultimately has a positive impact on the environment!
Now that you know that you're basically mother nature here are some facts to get you into to up-cycle trend:
1. You can find some GENUINE vintage items for a fraction of the price! I keep my eyes open for any red tags of big e's (you fellow vintage hunters know what I'm talking about). When I do find genuine vintage items I try to ask the public through Instagram and Facebook story polls of what YOU would like to see on the item!
2. Environmental impacts;
-Up-cycled clothes are less likely to end up in landfills. American’s send an average of 10.5 million tons of clothing to landfills every year.
-Transportation-related pollution also decreases when clothing is re-used, as new clothes are much more likely to travel long distances before being sold than are their second-hand counterparts.
