We all have to participate sometimes in one-time events such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, etc. why not rent a dress (in excellent condition, of course) and give it back afterward. It does not only save you a lot of money but also saves our lovely planet.

9. Secondhand can also be the first choice

Good quality clothes, even second-hand ones, can be valuable. Your friends will not notice the difference, but your wallet and the earth surely will.

10. Always do the proper laundry

It may sound funny, but many folks don’t do the laundry properly.
