Green living is a wise way of life. Basically, you can save money and save the planet with changes in your lifestyle. One of those changes includes use of second-hand clothes. In the history, parent gave their old clothes to children and older children gave it to their younger brothers and sisters. This is still the tradition is some countries. Now, many families are trying to buy clothes and sneakers for their children that are the latest and the most popular. But your children grow fast, so he/she can wear those sneakers only a few times. Then, you will have to throw them in the trash. Many of old toys and clothes are thrown away each month.
The University of California found that 350 trash bags will with clothes are thrown away into the Siskiyou Country landfill each month. Many of that clothes waits there. This isn’t some big deal, but it is a problem for the environment and for the country. Instead of throwing your old clothes, you can donate it. There are many ways to do this. Also, there are many people and children who will appreciate the free clothes. Besides donating, you can use second-hand clothes as well.
This will reduce the need for buying new clothes each month. If you have some important job, of course that you will wear new clothes, but when you are working at home, wear old clothes. When you buy less, factories produce less. Because every factory makes a pollution, if you can make them work less, this will be a great news for our planet.
