It’s popular to shop online on resell sites for used or vintage clothing these days. Not only is it a great way to save money, but it’s also very ecological, too. Turns out buying used duds results in a 95% efficiency rate in terms of energy used to make clothing. When you compare the energy to ship used clothing vs. the amount needed to make new clothes, it’s significantly more energy-efficient to buy used. And used clothing has gone upscale, too, with resell sites dealing in luxury brands at a fraction of the cost.
