Challenge yourself to only buy pre-loved clothes for one year. Sites like eBay, Vinted, Vestiaire and Depop have amazing designer, high street and vintage clothes at a fraction of the price of new or check out your local charity shops, markets and car boot sales - you are guaranteed to get a more original look and you won't be contributing to the problem.
