Ah, National Secondhand Wardrobe Week – that special time of year when thrifty fashionistas everywhere celebrate the joys of upcycling, sustainability, and renewing one’s wardrobe with pre-loved, gently-used and vintage finds.
The premise of National Secondhand Wardrobe Week is simple – to encourage people to shop secondhand and to create awareness around the many benefits of thrifting (not just to your wallet, but to the environment, too!).
There are many ways to participate in National Secondhand Wardrobe Week. From organizing a clothes swap with friends and family, to donating clothing to charity, to shopping for gently-worn items at your local thrift store, or finding unique vintage gems online, there are endless ways to spruce up your wardrobe in an eco-friendly way.
It’s no secret that the fashion industry is one of the biggest polluters in the world. From the toxic chemicals used in fabric production, to the resources used for shipping and packaging, and to the large amount of wasteful fabric scraps, the environmental impact of fashion is huge.
But by shopping secondhand, you can reduce the negative environmental effects of fashion by extending the life of existing garments. After all, the best way to reduce our carbon footprint is to produce less waste and to reuse what we already have.
Plus, when you choose to buy pre-loved items, you’re helping to support charity organizations and giving discarded clothes a new lease on life. Many charities, such as The Salvation Army, Goodwill and St. Vincent de Paul, accept donations of lightly-used clothing items, which they then resell in their thrift stores. Proceeds from the resale of the donated garments are used to fund their charitable causes.
Shopping at thrift stores also presents an opportunity to find unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that you won’t find anywhere else. From retro accessories to vintage denim, secondhand stores are bursting with unique finds that are sure to give your wardrobe a unique edge.
If you’re feeling creative, you can even upcycle secondhand garments to create something entirely new. Whether you’re sewing a patchwork quilt from old t-shirts, or embellishing a pair of jeans with appliqués, upcycling is an easy and effective way to give new life to your existing wardrobe.
I’ve got to admit my style is ‘bought it 20 years ago and still wearing it’ with a dash of ‘oversized t-shirt gym chic’. If you are more fashion aware, and let’s admit it, a carrot is more fashion aware than me, then, you have decades of older fashion to choose from to create whole new pieces that no one else will have.
It’s the perfect opportunity to give your wardrobe an eco-friendly makeover. So why not take the plunge and try something new this year? Whether you choose to donate, swap, shop, share, or upcycle, getting involved in National Secondhand Wardrobe Week is a fun and environmentally-friendly way to refresh your wardrobe and make a positive difference in the world.
