The Laurel area is home to a variety of second-hand, thrift, and consignment shops where shoppers can find clothing, home goods, books, music, appliances, and much more. Buying secondhand gives you not only more bang for your buck, but also has enormous environmental benefits:
It extends the life of an individual item
Keeps items out of the landfill, particularly those made from synthetic materials that take longer to decompose
By shopping locally and buying reused you are reducing your carbon footprint
Reducing water consumption - manufacturing textiles consumes a lot of water!
Many second-hand stores have a charitable component with direct support going right to the community
