With Leo’s Oscar win (#finally), he used his speech to warn us all about the seriousness of climate change. A shocking fact is that the fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world, following only the oil industry. That is absolutely insane. So, how does one greenify their closet? Consign!
Consigning is a great option because less demand = less production, meaning you’ve just helped the world be a slightly less shitty place. (And I’ll save the horrors of fast fashion for another post.) Also, buying anything you need to “break in” like shoes or stiff jeans is an added bonus of buying used! Thanks for the tip, Chrissie 🙂
If you live in the Atlanta area, Alexis Suitcase is an amazing option for consigning with an ambiance that makes you feel like you’re shopping at a boutique! It’s an upscale consignment store with three locations: Buckhead, John’s Creek, and Sandy Springs. I went to their Spring Fashion Presentation at the Sandy Springs location a few weeks ago and loved what I saw! The staff is so sweet and they carry some really great brands. In their jeans alone I saw J Brand, Joe’s Jeans, Theory, and more. I actually bought a great pair of Madewell blue & white jeans that will be absolutely perfect for this summer!
Be chic and environmentally conscious next time you go shopping (online, too) and head over to Alexis Suitcase!
