RENTING IS THE NEW BLACK: 3 PLACES TO RENT DESIGNER DRESSES & CLOTHING ONLINE👗
American consumers alone generate nearly 2️⃣5️⃣4️⃣ million tons of waste per year—and much of this waste is due to the fashion industry and millions of pieces of discarded textiles🆘. One of the ways to decrease the generation of waist is renting the clothes👍. It is not completely environmentally friendly, as it involves a lot of dry cleaning and shipping—but it certainly beats buying pieces for just one or two wears😊.
