If you’re like me, you are always wanting new clothes. That being said, I often find myself in a place where I’m trying to justify the need for more clothes when there are already so many in my closet. However, I found that when I buy clothes from sustainable brands, I feel so much better about it. (That’s why I love Goodwill so much, but we will save that for another post).
