There are now so many more options to shop nowadays for both sustainable and recycled style, than ever before. These types of businesses are creating great environments and resources that either give back, or help in facilitating more sustainable ways to shop, which in turn take a small step in cutting down waste.

Swapping is beautiful
Being a budget conscious shopper, a few years ago I discovered Give + Take swap boutique in Santa Monica. This is one of the only brick & mortar swap shops in the U.S.A. You pay a low monthly membership of $35.00 + tax, to gain access to their amazing collection of gently used, and new clothes. It’s like a giant, fashionable library for women’s clothes. You can wear something to an event and bring it back for someone else to take. The concept is so great. I don’t have any desire to buy new clothes anymore after I discovered this hidden gem.
