The resale industry is booming now more than ever, as many people are aware of the severely debilitating effects of “fast fashion.” Clothing and garments sold cheaply and worn disposably can seriously and negatively impact the environment. These discarded clothes fill up landfills, waste previous resources, increase greenhouse gases, and thus further climate change. The best way to combat this from happening is to become a part of a reduction, reuse, and recycling program, in which second-hand clothing retailers such as Winmark are now a more necessary solution than ever.
With statistics showing as much as 713 gallons of water are needed to make a single t-shirt, it is no surprise clothing resale businesses have responded with immense growth. Overuse of water, harmful dyes, fossil fuels, and growing landfills are all more than enough reason to take serious action. Recycling used to seem like an expensive of time-consuming matter, though it no longer is regarded as such.
As climate change continues to loom over us as a very real threat, helping the environment in any way you can is more important than ever. This is why many earth-conscious and environmentally friendly consumers proudly shop from resale stores as part of reducing their carbon footprint. Not only do consumers love the idea of helping out the environment, they are able to organize and clear out their closets while earning some extra cash on the side.
