In Conversation: Thrifting/Vintage clothing and Sustainable Fashion

It goes without saying that modern-day ways of living have become wasteful to their core.

On average, the fashion industry creates 92 million tons of textile waste annually and in 2014, the milestone of 100 billion garments made yearly was hit (SOURCE) That's enough to provide every person on the planet with 14 garments annually. These numbers are only expected to rise in the coming years.

Thrifting dates back to as early as the 1950s and has since become a more popular method of finding vintage couture items. (SOURCE).

Today, you can find thrift stores filled with tees and other threads that have been stored in closets and forgotten until a very thorough spring cleaning.

We spoke to two thrift gurus from the buyer and seller perspective to see why they decided to start buying and selling vintage grails (a term used for iconic vintage styles).

We hope that by having this conversation, we can shed some light on why thrifting is a large part of fighting waste and providing perfectly good clothing at reasonable prices.

Consider supporting your local thrift store this holiday season, you may never know what great things are tucked away in them.

Be sure to look through your closets and consider donating.
