Like many things in life, sustainability, often defined as an “avoidance of the depletion of natural resources,” is not as complicated as you might think. One simple way to lessen your personal impact on the environment is by purchasing and wearing vintage clothing.
Experts estimate that the average American disposes of about 80 pounds of clothing per year, creating more than 26 billion pounds of textile waste annually. This trend of disposable clothing represents almost 6 percent of all municipal waste.
Beggar’s Banquet Vintage is committed to “The Three R’s of the Environment: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.” We are dedicated to finding quality vintage fashion while reducing the amount of clothing being discarded in landfills. Discovering quality vintage garments and home goods is truly our passion.
We bring you an alternative to the big chain stores that feature low-quality products that are disposible. Each vintage item we secure is ready to be reused with a new owner! Upgrade your closet today with our environmentally friendly classic vintage finds! The planet and your wallet will thank you!
Remember that classic vintage clothing never really goes out of style. Vintage items are more than just “used clothing”. They make a strong statement and were made with a craftsmanship that is hard to find today. Most vintage items were hand-made in America and are difficult to reproduce in today’s economy.
Enhance your unique style with one-of-a-kind pieces. You’ll look and feel great while expressing your personality.
When you wear vintage, mixing it up with quality current pieces (French Connection is a good choice) will keep you from looking costume-ish.
Respect our planet by conserving natural resources and reducing waste. The future generations will thank you.
