Let’s recycle, repurpose and reuse: shop at a thrift shop!
The resale market is booming thanks to cost-conscious consumers and the popular Macklemore song. Here’s a parody of the song!
According to The Association of Resale Professionals, the industry has experienced a growth approximately 7% a year for the past two years. There are currently more than 25,000 resale, consignment and Not For Profit resale shops in the United States. According to America’s Research Group, a consumer research firm, about 16 – 18% of Americans will shop at a thrift store during a given year.
As The Association of Resale Professionals says: “Resale is the ultimate in recycling!”
