Save the environment & some money at Family Tree Consignment in Wingham (03/18/21)

Welcome to Roland’s Good News File… brought to you by Royal LePage Don Hamilton Real Estate… I’m Roland Archer.

The environment is something we are hearing more and more about in our daily lives. Global warming, environmental instability, volatile weather patterns.. these are all things that are related to the state of the world and the planet as we know it.

The other thing we hear about quite a bit is our environmental footprint. This is the toll each of us takes out on the world in which we live in. The ideal goal is to leave the world in a better place after we are done with it than before we were here.

This isn’t the case with our average demand for clothing. We survive in a world where fast fashion has us inundated by designers with new styles of garments quicker than they actually wear out.

Clothing is made in more colours, styles, fabrics and seasons than we would actually need outside of the corporate demand for profits. Manufacturers make garments in such numbers than it’s more financially beneficial to destroy clothing lines that don’t pick up with customers then actually reduce their price.

This is where Family Tree Quality Family Consignment Store in Wingham comes in. They offer the opportunity for clothing consumers to offer up garments they no longer want yet they still have a lot of great wear left in them to new consumers.

The transaction not only makes the seller a bit of money they would not see by just keeping the unwanted garment but also saves the clothing waste from ending up in landfill to not go anywhere for hundreds of years.

The store has nearly 1500 consignors from all over Southwestern Ontario. This ensures new items are coming in daily and there’s lots of styles and types to choose from.

So the next time you are in need of a refresh in your wardrobe give the Family Tree Quality Family Consignment Store a try.

They are located at 239 Josephine Street in Wingham. You can find them online at
