Macklemore? Can we go thrift shopping? (Link 9)

 

Did you know that a single pair of jeans uses almost a thousand gallons of water? A “washed out” look to the jeans is even more environmentally harmful.

    Thrift shopping was not a popular form of purchasing goods until the whole “retro-hipster” phase began but, thrift shopping is such a great improvement for your wallet AND the environment. 

  Going to stores such as Forever 21, you have to think sometimes: who would wear this? I mean obnoxious florescent green cheetah print jeans? Really? It’s great that stores like that are helping the economy but, they’re also damaging the environment. 

 

Next time you’re out for a purchase, rethink your choice.
