If you’re anything like me, lately, you’ve been thinking about more ways you can reduce your impact on the environment.
It can be a little intimidating of a task, but I am a big believer that small steps can make a big difference. There are so many places you can start, over the past few years I have tried to tackle shopping mostly second hand to reduce my footprint.
Second-hand shopping has so many positive impacts on the environment, including reducing waste created making new items and keeping things out of landfills. While I do love spending an afternoon digging through the thrift shop Macklemore style, I also like when people make my life a little easier. Columbus has seen a huge uptick of local second-hand curators who are thrift savvy and are sharing their spoils on social media for you to shop.
I’ve rounded up seven I think you should be following from clothing to home goods, each of these locals has their own unique style and flare.
