For most of my life my parents and I bought my clothes from shops in the mall in and around Toronto. We never thought of how the clothes were made and what would happen to them after I grew out of the clothes. Now that I know how wasteful my clothes are, I have been trying to find ways to buy more sustainable clothing, but I haven't had much luck finding something that I can afford or that is truly sustainable. There was always another option: thrifting. It's something that I never did before because I was being superficial. I didn't want to buy second-hand clothes as I thought I was better than that, I guess. I got over my ego this past weekend and went to a local thrift store and I can gladly say I was successful. I am going to tell you how it all went and why I think I stood in my own way to not do something.
