Second-hand clothing, or 'vintage' is a good and green alternative if you're a fashion-addict or just like fashion. You nearly always find something special, something unique. Besides, you don't stimulate fashion-producers to produce more and more clothing. Did you know most fashion-producers use poisonous dyes to colour your clothes? When we wash our clothes, the poison gets into our drinking water. When I discovered this, I decided to stop buying new clothes. That's why I entered a challenge called 'Fashion against toxics', set up by a few female Greenpeace activists. This challenge involves you are not allowed to buy new clothes for three months. And that's a lot easier than I thought! Now, nearly all my clothes are second-handed. And I feel more relaxed than ever! You don't need to stress about being fashionable, because the clothes you wear are unique.
