Thrifting and MHS!

A cheap and sustainable way of purchasing stylish clothes is making a comeback. Many people, particularly those without much to spare, resort to secondhand clothing.

Along with a more affordable price, thrifters help reverse the damage to our planet. If there is a small and not costly way of keeping it as healthy as possible, we should so together, we can keep tons of clothes out of our landfills and oceans. We only have one Earth. 

If you do not thrift with the idea of helping the greater good of the world, it also improves one’s status. Buying second-hand is cheaper and easier to access. This a small step towards reversing the damage done to our planet.

Melissa Burger encourages her students to make better choices for the environment.

“Not only is it convenient, it lowers one’s carbon footprint,” said Burger. 

Thifting doesn’t require an excessive trip, either. Second-hand stores are all around Mooresville and are easy to find. Most students who are into thrifting find themselves at local places such as Goodwill.

Junior Halle Brown, a thrift enthusiast, has over half of her wardrobe second-hand.

“Thrifting makes it easier to find vintage clothes while I save money and help the planet,” said Brown.

For those who do not live close to a thrift store or simply cannot find time, online thrift shopping is a resourceful alternative. Websites such as https://www.thredup.com/ are gaining popularity with those who are seeking global change. Here, the thrifter can select their desired styles, sizes, and brands of clothing and purchase them for a discounted price.
