Don't buy any new clothing for 30 days and discover the wonders of the thrift shop.
British charity Oxfam has issued a challenge called Second-Hand September. They want their customers not to buy brand-new clothing for 30 days to cut down on the environmental impact of clothing production and, perhaps most importantly, to discover how easy, fun, and cost-effective this practice can be.
Oxfam has partnered with model Stella Tennant to promote the challenge. She and her daughter Iris pose in a range of photos, made to look like a conventional fashion shoot while wearing second-hand shop finds.
