Fighting Fast Fashion

By: Elise Kuiper

What’s the best part about thrift shopping? I love going to the thrift store and finding a nearly-new pair of jeans for $10 or less! Or I might find a perfect worn-in cardigan for a cold winter day. Thrift stores have some of the most unique clothes with no duplicates, making our fashion choices one-of-a-kind! Even better, when we shop at Many Hands Thrift Market, we know that our money supports those living and working in Haiti–what’s better than that? But did you know that choosing to shop at the thrift store rather than buying new clothes has a global impact that extends beyond Haiti? That’s right! Thrift shopping is an easy and fun way to support good companies and actively fight against bad clothing industry practices.
