Upcycling or repurposing clothing or furniture a greener alternative.
We have been doing this for decades. I told hubby 5 years ago we are actually in fashion and think we were actually a head of the trend.That never happens. I refashioned kids clothing, but not adult clothing. I have introduced my friends and family to second-hand shopping. They became hooked. I usually buy second-hand clothing that had price tags still on them. No one had ever even worn them. I would make small repairs. We were waiting in line for a second-hand shop to open. All joking aside.
I am not happy with the clothing manufacturers choices of dyes, working conditions, wages.. This is my way of protesting and recycling and trying to change my consumerism.
