I know that it's really tempting to go out and buy all of these really cheap and trend pieces of clothing. But I really try to resist it. Plus, I think that it's important to not waste any clothing if you don't have to. People don't really think of it but that is just another way to be really wasteful. If a shirt is cheap, there's no use in reusing it as a way to help the environment.

My daughter loves to go and buy clothes like that, but I like to try and teach her that it's important to not do that because she couldn't create any more waste than she can help. I looked online to see if I could at least find some environmentally friendly clothing that she would love. When I was looking through that stuff, I ran across some info on internet providers in my zip code and after I looked through it a little bit I decided to change over our home service to one of them.

I actually found some really great organic cotton clothes that my daughter loved and I talked her into buying some of them. At least that's a good start!
