Being green can have everything to do with saving money, which is why I love shopping at second-hand shops. There are charity shops, dress agencies and also the school second-hand shop for used school uniform. The internet is also a great place to pick up second-hand goodies, good places to start including Freecycle and Ebay.
If your impression of second-hand things is dull and dowdy, take a look at these vintage finds from Etsy.
