I'm talking about the second-hand pledge. This could revolutionise your life!
I PLEDGE TO SHOP SECOND-HAND!
I resolve to purchase items that are thrifted, swapped or handed down. My aim is to limit my consumption, and in so doing, I intend to shop from second-hand sources first. I pledge to support business that commits to sustainable and smart design. I look first for recycled, vintage and pre-loved goods. I barter and swap when possible, and shop at consignment, thrifts and flea markets when probable.
I PLEDGE TO SHOP SECOND-HAND BECAUSE I PUT THE PLANET FIRST!
Now many of my blogging buddies already only/mostly shop second-hand, like I do, so it may be more of an affirmation than a revolution.
But if not, think about the good things YOU can do for the planet, for charities, AND for your wallet! Makes sense, doesn't it?
I invite anyone and everyone to join in! If you have your own blog, please feel free to post about this pledge.
Now before you go thinking I'm being terribly creative and original, I'm not, I got this from young Reva, whose enthusiasm for all things fashion is absolutely infectious. Go check her out!
