I spent the morning with the manager of Clover Flat Landfill doing a fashion photo shoot highlighting used clothing to illustrate that there could be beauty in used clothing and to inspire others to consider alternatives to buying new clothes that would eventually end up in the dump.
As we enter the holiday season, as consumers, we can become more aware and aware of where our clothes come from and who makes the clothes we wear every day.
If you’re interested in shopping at stores that focus on eco-friendly clothing, here are some ideas to consider: When shopping locally, Lolo’s and Sportago on St. Petersburg Helena and Community Projects, Inc. and Goodwill in Napa.
If you want to shop online, check out Everlane, Lucy and Yak, ThredUp, Verloop, Tradesy, Vestiaire Collective, and The RealReal.
