While consigning your "mistakes" won't make you rich, it will provide a welcome rebate on purchases that turned out to be not so perfect for you. And, of course, that money can be joyfully re-spent in the shop on something that is just the thing!
We all know this. But consider:
Cotton crops pollute. It is estimated that in the Third World, half of all pesticides used are used on cotton fields. When you consign—and thus recycle—a single gently-used T-shirt and one pair of jeans, you help save a full pound of chemical fertilizer and pesticide from being released into the soil, water, and atmosphere.
And consider this: "One doesn't usually see cotton as a "dirty" product like plastics, but in fact cultivation involves high concentrations of fertilizer, herbicide and pesticide. Cotton accounts for only 2.5% of all agricultural land use, but for 22.5% of all insecticides applied in agriculture. During the processing, many more chemicals are used in the bleaching and dyeing. Finally, every stage of cotton agriculture and processing is water-intensive – often in areas of the globe where water is not in plentiful supply. If the T-shirt is going to end up in a landfill after a couple of outings, it represents a spectacular waste of environmental resources of soil and water."
Now, the key in pricing is reasonable. No professional shopkeeper, and no reasonable consignor, will insist that something in a consignment shop be priced too high. The consignor risks having his items remain unsold, and the shopkeeper risks not making the rent! So when you're looking for a shop to best represent you, look for one whose prices and selling policies will draw buying customers.
