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.
