Does buying secondhand clothes encourage waste?

I’ve just completed round two of my wardrobe cull. Ten bags later I’m feeling pretty proud of myself  that I was so ruthlessness. But I’m not proud of being wasteful. Why on earth did I have so much to throw out? While once upon a time my clothes filled a wardrobe 3 metres long, these days I’m a pretty conservative shopper. So where did it all come from?


After analysing what I’d donated to charity I realised that most of what I was throwing out was originally purchased second hand. It’s all to easy to buy second hand because it’s cheap but I now know that just because something is low or even no cost doesn’t mean I need to have it.
