Why Buy from the Lifeline $2 Clothing Sale?
1. Slow Fashion is eco-friendly
Buying secondhand is GREAT for the environment. A lot of water and chemicals go into manufacturing our garments with approximately 1,800 gallons of water required to make one pair of blue jeans! If the clothes are recycled, it means we are being living a more sustainable life.
2. It’s like a treasure hunt.
You never know what you will find at a Second Hand store, or at the $2 Lifeline Clothing Sale in the Eco Expo! When you stumble across that perfect piece, it’s like striking gold (and getting a ridiculously low price!
3. You find brand names for ridiculously low prices.
The clothing your purchase secondhand is NOT junk! Often you will find designer brands, where people have paid big money but then give them to thrift shops. It’s all part of the treasure hunt.. and you always win on the buying end of that deal!
4. Reduces Textile waste
Buying second hand is one of the best ways to deal with textile waste! Second hand clothes get used by a new person for a few more years, and this extends the lifespan of the garment. When many clothes get discarded by most people, it generates an enormous amount of waste.
5. Recycling Community
Recycling garments aids those in need and helps the environment as well. On a socio-economic level, it’s allows people to create a new identity out of branded used clothing that offers them better shot in the social world. On a society level, it develops a culture of recycling.
6. It frees up money for other things
Clothing isn’t always place where you may care to spend a lot of money. Come along to the Lifeline $2 Clothing Sale can fill 75% of your family’s clothing needs — and still look great!
7. It helps charity
Lifeline answers 170,000 calls from people in crisis every year. Most of these calls are answered by highly trained volunteers. Shop at the $2 Clothing sale to help Lifeline fund the recruitment and training of more Lifeline Crisis Supporters, so there is someone to answer every call.
