Three Tips To Try Trends More Sustainably
These days really try to shop with the longevity of the items I buy in mind (Will it last? Will I get a lot of use out of it?) as well as how sustainably it was produced.
That said, sometimes it's fun to try a trend! So here are three ways to try a trend while minimizing your environmental impact.
Buy second hand-I love this one! There are so many great "preloved" pieces on the market and you can find a gently used gem that's both eco and economical!
Try a rental service-Companies like Rent the Runway allow you to try a trend temporarily then send if back when you're done. Ideally, this extends the life of an item by giving it more use.
Borrow from a friend-I miss the days of living in a sorority house and having access to all my "sisters" clothes but you can recreate that by having a clothing swap with your friends. Sure, it's a little more work now that you don't all live in the same building. But for free, green fashion it's worth it!
