Save Money and the Environment by Becoming A Savvy Secondhand Shopper
Think it’s impossible to keep up with the latest styles and save money? Think again! With a little second-hand-shopping know-how, you can freshen up the entire family’s fall wardrobe with unique items without breaking the bank.
Viewers will also learn how keeping clothes out of landfills by putting quality, reusable merchandise back into circulation can help reduce fashion’s impact on the earth. More than 12 million tons of textiles end up in landfills each year in the U.S. If everyone dedicated just 10% of their purchases to secondhand clothing, it would have the same impact as taking 1 million cars off the road for a year, in terms of emissions reductions.
On the first day of fall, Rich Lesperance, Swap dot com “Chief Thrift Officer”, showcases fashionable fall styles shopped completely from the site’s more than two-million item inventory. As a father of three, and an active buyer and seller on Swap dot com, Rich provides a personal perspective on how shopping secondhand can help families stay on top of seasonal trends and save up to 90% off retail prices.
About: Rich Lesperance joined Swap dot com in 2016.
