Babylon Mall Celebrates Earth Day

With over 16 million tons of used clothing going to American landfills every year, Babylon Mall is proud to be doing their part by helping to recycle vintage clothing worldwide.

Ottawa, Canada, April 22, 2006 --( By donating your used clothing instead of throwing it in the garbage, you can help prevent millions of tons of waste from entering landfills each year.

But did you realize that by purchasing used or vintage clothing you are also helping local cottage industry? Or maybe you purchase vintage clothing to help America reduce the need for cheap foreign labor employed in sweatshops in developing countries. In addition to supporting independent business, vintage clothing is usually very well-made. The seams and finish of a vintage garment are usually far superior to modern mass-produced garments. Vintage clothing often uses natural organic fibers, makes you look and feel great, and costs less than cheaply-made mass-produced goods. It also helps you create your own unique style.

The next time you’re looking for a new outfit, consider buying vintage. You will be amazed at the variety of colors and styles available at such places as Babylon Mall. Finish your look with a piece of vintage jewelry, a vintage scarf, and some vintage footwear.

Fashion can be good for the earth, the economy, and you too!
