The fashion industry unfortunately takes a lot of blame when it comes to climate change; however, this doesn’t mean that you can’t find clothes you like while also being sustainable.

Hope’s Closet

At 651 Commerce Center Drive, Hope’s Closet is for those who prefer the upscale, boutique thrifting experience. This is one of two Jacksonville locations, and each store carries used clothing, accessories, and decor, as well as some new items sprinkled in as well. Something to keep in mind is that Hope’s Closet is religiously affiliated, and run by the Church of Eleven22, so there are many Christian themes in the store.
