Environmental Impacts of Thrift Shopping

It is easy to calculate the monetary value of shopping secondhand, but there are benefits beyond what we get to keep in our bank accounts. Shopping at your local thrift stores actually has a large environmental impact. When you shop at a thrift store here are just a few things you do to help the world around you!

-Cut on carbon emissions needed to bring merchandise from factories to retail stores

-Keep items out of landfills because you’re reusing them!

-Boost local economy by giving business to local stores

-Lower demand from businesses that sell products made in unethical sweatshops

-Create an all around positive attitude to reusing and upcycling!

These are just a few perks of shopping at thrift stores. Thank you for supporting your local thrift stores, and being a positive impact in the world around you!
