Recycled Clothing

Although many might not think of clothing in thrift stores or consignment shops as being eco-friendly they in fact are. By shopping at thrift stores you are buying recycled clothing and the great part is most of the clothing you find there are vintage! Some may think of these types of shops filled with your grandmothers clothing but the truth is that although some are there are many that are not.Thrift stores have become the new chic thing. My favorite consignment shop has to be Second Time Around and it was voted the Best Consignment Shop in Boston so check it out! There are also many opening up in malls such as Providence Place Mall and down town boutiques.

  1. Hi Emily, I came across your blog on Twitter and just thought I'd drop you a quick note. I'm excited by the young design talent emerging with a strong ethical and environmental awareness - it is (with luck) the future of the industry.

    Good luck with your studies!
