Thrifting and buying second-hand are great ways to save money while reducing the carbon footprint of your wardrobe. With the pandemic making in-person shopping a little risky, though, many thrifters — and thrift stores — have been moving their efforts online in order to enjoy thrifting while also avoiding the coronavirus.
