San Marcos Thrifting Combats Textile Waste

When thinking about thrifting and the environment, some struggle to see how they are related. Many see thrifting as a shopping choice, or a way to follow vintage and reoccurring trends, but a closer look at the cyclical nature of thrifting will reveal that thrifting is in fact an a way to engage in sustainable shopping.

I interviewed Associate Professor of Sociology, Dr. Michelle Lynn Edwards and fellow Bobcat Lauren Hurting to talk about what defines textile waste, why thrifting is more sustainable and what the future may hold.

More to come soon.
