THE BEST THING WE CAN DO IS BUY FEWER, BETTER THINGS
With new trends and styles advertised daily, we've been convinced that buying more at a cheaper price to keep up is the better deal. But with more research, evidence and growing waste, it's evident that this is not the truth that we should be following when we shop.
Fashion Revolution makes a big argument (and I agree) that if we take time to buy fewer, higher quality, well made and loved purchases, we'd be more satisfied with our wardrobes and our money would be better spent in the long run.
LOVED CLOTHES LAST
The more we love the clothes we own and those we purchase, the better off our wardrobes will be in the long run. This is why second hand shopping, clothing swaps, repairing our clothes, and taking better care of each item can make a difference to avoid more clothing going to landfill. Because textile waste is an epidemic.
When we take the time to love the clothes we purchase and keep them in circulation, they will last. Feel confident in your clothes and purchases so we can make changes in the industry by our own personal consumer patterns - little by little.
HOW IT WORKS
Little Minimalist will buy your gently used clothing and issue you a store credit to be used at Little Minimalist. The payment structure will vary, but we will pay an estimated 20% of the original price of the item (condition of clothing plays a large factor). Though your clothing does not need to be purchases through Little Minimalist for us to buy it back, the brands and quality of the clothing must be on par with what we sell in the shop. We will not resell Zara, Gap, OldNavy as their clothing manufacturing and textile use does not fall inline with our values at Little Minimalist.
