RECYCLING IS GOOD FOR YOU, YOUR FAMILY, AND YOUR WALLET
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!
RECYCLING IS GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.
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.
"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.
THERE ARE TWO GOOD REASONS TO CONSIGN.
IT'S GOOD FOR YOU, AND IT'S GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.
