In the last 2 years, we’ve seen Instagram businesses grow like never before. Jewelry pages, candle stores and even thrift stores. As previously mentioned in our blog sustainable fashion, shopping consciously is the need of the hour. We need to start being environmentally conscious and reduce our carbon footprint. Reduce - reuse - recycle is a mantra we’ve been taught since we were little kids, but over the years seem to have forgotten it. So let’s go back to our roots and find a way to consciously shop.
To help you shop sustainably. Here are our favourite Instagram thrift stores in India!1. @thekifaayatco

Thrift stores have always been a part of western cultures, and are slowly creeping into ours. They’re necessary for the economy, the environment and of course our pockets! Thrifting may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but fast fashion brands should not always be the answer. Look out for brands that make sustainability a priority that cannot be compromised. As customers, the factors we prioritize while spending money is what shapes global business so it’s a responsibility that must be taken seriously.
Live sustainably and live aastey!
