LIKE-NEW IS BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

by | Inspiration, The Lills

Check out some of the fun recycled items we’ve found along the way at The Lills Style!

Rather than supporting the addition of more new products on the globe, we’ve made a vow to invest in like-new clothing and items, all which have character and can’t be found in this season’s catalog or at the store next door. We feel so silly having spent hundreds of dollars on things that cost almost nothing to produce, but we’re happy we woke up and made the change.

We eventually learned that half of the world lives on fifty cents to a dollar day, which has so much to do with cheap labor for imported goods. Big brands spend big dollars on advertising and very few dollars on the production of the actual products. The perception of the product often seems more important than the quality of the product. It’s a money game, which keeps the rich wealthy and the poor without the necessities. The two of us are choosing to no longer support it.

We’ve had so many more exciting experiences treasure hunting at fun vintage, retro and thrift stores. Each one has items we’ve never ever seen before and we always save money, make new memories, learn things and walk away with feelings and funky finds that a mall, department store, outlet, name brand or designer brand store just don’t offer. If everyone saw the value in what is already here and steered clear from shopping retail, the planet could possibly get a break from all the discarded goods, turning perfectly good land into more landfills.
