20 People Who Made a Perfect Match With Their Thrifted Clothes and Stunned Us With Their Luck
Buying second-hand clothes can benefit your wallet and the environment. Just by increasing the lifespan of one piece of clothing to 4.5 years, it could save up to 60 million cubic meters of water and prevent the emission of 160,000 metric tons of CO2. And some people are lucky enough to find beautiful hidden gems while helping to save the planet. Prom gowns, wedding dresses, and designer jackets are some of the things they bought at a bargain price.
