Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. We’ve all heard those words a thousand times if we’ve heard them once, and yet applying that principle to the contents of our closets can sometimes come with a stigma none of us prefers. In addition to other ideas cited by this environmentally-friendly article, there are two that stand out as coordinating well with your shopping experience at the Penny Pincher Boutique: Shop Local and Buy Used Clothing.
Why Shopping Local Makes a Difference
As a locally owned and operated small business, Penny Pincher Boutique has been contributing to the local economy here in Westchester County, New York for over thirty years!
By shopping local, you ensure that the majority of your fashion dollars stays right here where you live, contributing to the local economy and paying employees and consignors. But don’t worry: you won’t be finding anything but exquisite designer items in our store: Each item we have on our racks has been cared for and contributed by local consignors and carefully inspected for authenticity and condition by our well-trained staff.
Why Shopping Resale Matters
While many green fashion bloggers are comparing and contrasting fabrics from sustainable sources that impact the environment less than others and companies that make responsible choices, any time you purchase new clothing you’re still relying on some sort of manufacturing which impacts the environment in a negative way.
Instead, when you purchase previously owned clothing, you’re extending the life of that already produced piece. If there is no market for used clothing — just like for reusing or repurposing items of any kind — those items with plenty of life left in them will end up in landfills. And we all know how anti-green landfills are. Not only is an environmentally friendly lifestyle in vogue right now, but it’s also just plain responsible — and we’re guessing that you like the idea of being both!
