Miley Cyrus has promoted the sustainability benefits of shopping second hand to her 100 million Instagram followers.

The vegan musician took to the social media platform to show off some of the top fashion picks she discovering on a recent thrifting trip to a high-end store.

Sustainable fashion

Among them was a black, wide-brimmed Tom Ford hat (which retails new for $790).

Cyrus captioned the image: “Tom Ford but make it thrifty ( previously loved/owned clothes = most sustainable fashion source).”

Second hand

Thrifting, buying vintage, or secondhand clothing is becoming increasingly popular, according to the 2019 Resale Report from online thrift store thredUp.

The report says: “Resale is on the move, people! From big retailers to small retailers, seed stage investors to large buyout firms, and from the New York Times to Netflix, everyone seems to be talking about the future of resale.

“The last few years of growth in the resale market have been driven by the early adopters (the same ones who first adopted Airbnb or Lyft or DoorDash), but now the skeptics are starting to come around. At thredUP, we’re seeing first-time thrifters coming to platforms like ours in droves. Not surprisingly, the younger generations are leading this charge, with millennials and Gen Z adopting secondhand 2.5x faster than other age groups.”
