In my opinion, a vegan lifestyle partly involves reducing waste. I have never enjoyed shopping and I typically prefer going to thrift shops before going to a mall. There is so much waste and consumption that goes into producing new clothing. Also, let’s not forget that factory workers spend 8+ hours a day in poor conditions producing clothes. I believe that it is super important to go to thrift stores, second hand stores, or even just swapping clothes with friends.

This trip to Goodwill, I bought a patterned blouse, a pair of cropped jeans, and some dishes. I also like to get dishes at thrift shops because it makes my Instagram look more unique. I always check to make sure what I am getting is in decent condition. We need to break the stigma surrounding used items. People discard perfectly good items. You should not feel ashamed for saving money and reducing waste.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Love second-hand stores! Always find such cool things – and like you, I like to recycle! However, I have to add that some of the true ghost stories I post might advise caution 🙂 We’ve had haunted jewelry, haunted furniture, etc. 🙂 Personally, I’ve never had any strangeness issues with purchases (just with some stuff handed down from the family!). Great post!
