Has thrifting become a version of fast fashion?

View descriptionShare

America has a ton of clothing waste. It’s part of the reason many eco-conscious shoppers prefer thrifting. There’s one problem: even when thrifting, many still buy a ton of clothes and toss barely used garments. Social media is fueling this via massive thrift hauls, a.k.a showing off your shopping sprees. Thrifting and environmental experts help us to explore whether or not shopping secondhand has lost its environmental focus. We’re also looking at how are low-income communities — who’ve historically relied on thrifting for its affordable prices — are affected.
