Shakespeare wrote, ‘fashion wears out more apparel than the man,’ and that phrase is even truer today. North Americans buy more clothing than they need, and thrift shops and charities are swamped with our leftovers.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
Rodeo Drive Resale (http://www.shoprdr.com), premier reseller of 100% authentic guaranteed handbags and other designer pieces such as discount St. John Knits, Gucci heels and Fendi handbags, examines the world of eco-friendly fashion and how purchasing from consignment stores can be a great way to save cash while remaining environmentally responsible.
While blog sites such as eco-chick.com and organicfashionblog.com promote popular organic trends and fashions, upscale clothing and accessory lovers who buy pre-owned items help are also part of the green movement, as their purchases routinely help keep used clothing out of the nation’s already overflowing landfills.
As environmentalists and other social groups urge Americans to consider the effects their carbon footprint will have on future generations, giving a second life to a previously worn item is, for many, a fun and fashionable way to help Mother Earth. Those looking grab great deals on pre-owned items from the most popular labels in designer fashion may want to consider consignment stores such as ShopRDR.com, an online reseller with over 10 years of experience buying and selling designer fashion over the web.
“Shakespeare wrote, ‘fashion wears out more apparel than the man,’ and that phrase is even truer today,” Jo Paoletti, an American Studies professor at the University of Maryland said in a 2009 interview with CBS News on fashion’s push toward environmental responsibility. “North Americans buy more clothing than they need, and thrift shops and charities are swamped with our leftovers.”
Like thrift shops and charities, consignment stores are packed with pre-owned clothing; but since consignment stores are typically stricter on the quality and type of clothing they are willing to accept, shoppers are more likely to walk away with a winning piece that is 100% authentic and still in like-new condition.
For those new to consignment shopping, ShopRDR.com co-founder Raya Jaffer suggests setting aside enough time to dig for a winning piece: “Go with plenty of time to look. Unlike a regular retail store that may have a handful of styles in multiple sizes, a consignment store is going to have multiple styles but not a limited number of sizes. You will need time to browse hundreds, or sometimes thousands, of individual items. Shopping consignment online is a bit easier especially with a site like ours, which has the capability to narrow items down according to size, style, color and price range.”
While purchasing pre-owned items from consignment stores such as ShopRDR.com may not save the world, ensuring items such as pants, tops and handbags and accessories remain in the fashion loop and out of landfills is a great way to help show the planet you care.
