Shop less or secondhand
Before buying, think about whether you really need it. If you do, look for options that have a smaller footprint, said Casey Taylor, a partner in Bain and Co.’s retail practice. Invest in used products or in reusable, high-quality or easy-to-repair items. Check thrift shops, garage sales and community groups like the Freecycle Network. Another sustainable solution? Rent clothes through services like Le Tote and Rent the Runway.
