Five reasons why buying second hand helps the environment and your pocket.
1) Saves you money
         Majority of the time second hand items are donated because the donor no longer needs the item,           no longer fits them, Items that your mom, or grandma used while making that special meal can               be found in a second hand stores. 
2) Environmental supportive 
        It takes around 1,800 gallons of water to grow enough cotton to produce just one pair of regular              blue jeans. It takes about 712 gallons of water to grow enough cotton to produce 1 T-shirt. If we              recycle our usable items, it will reduce the amount of build up in our land fields. Clothes that are            reused instead of placed in land fields takes the strain off for a longer period. Someone that                    bought those items at a second hand store can be used for many years over and over. We start              with using recycled bags, taking straws out of cycle. Recycling used items helps in many ways.
3) Second hand clothes does not make you look poor. It actually helps you save lots of money, and the         clothes are usually just clothes that are not being used, same with small appliances. If you look at         the amount of money it costs to buy brand new, and then look at the cost to buy second hand it is           a win situation for you the consumer and the environment.
4) Second hand stores are usually support a Non-profit organization. Through your purchases you help         fund the non-profit. Every dollar spent helps keep the doors open.
5) Buying second hand makes you feel better. It gives you a sense of purpose knowing you have done         a lot of good for your community and environment.
