The Second Hand Issue
We at the Ethical Writers Coalition are challenging you to buy second hand first this season. All September, we will be discussing the value of thrift, how-tos, where to donate your own goods, and more! You game?
Our goals include:
- Promote second hand first.
- Simplify wardrobes and find the proper outlet for discards.
- Value the work of designers and factory workers by giving new life to discarded things.
