Thrift is now a habit for people who want to fulfill their fashion with minimal economy. According to Bordie's theory, this is a habitus.
Pierre Bordie argues that habitus is a set of schemes (orders) that allow agents to produce their alignments with practices that have been adapted or adapted to changing situations that continue to occur. The agents that have been described are included in the category of teenagers who have become a habit in a cheap shopping lifestyle but still look contemporary.
It is undeniable that there is a thrifting trend as well as being able to save the earth from the accumulation of textile waste. Reporting from Swift Wellness, Thrift is a good friend to the earth because of its environmental benefits. Unused clothes can easily pile up in the trash, or in other landfills. In short, this outfit ended up where it didn't belong. In this way, the good steps taken by the Thrifting trend activity have a positive impact, namely minimizing significant waste, because fewer clothes need to be produced, less textile and fabric waste will end up in landfills. In addition, this thrifting activity will protect the sea and air pollution. This is because garbage and textile waste will not decompose in water. Textiles and fabrics will remain intact, damaging, and even killing marine animals. Even in the production aspect, it takes several gallons of water to produce one shirt. So, through producing less clothes, the quality of the sea and the use of our water can be preserved. Textile factories all over the world produce clothes at a rapid rate, so the increase in air pollution and carbon emissions will be enormous. Thus, choosing to shop with the thrifting method is one of the efforts to reduce environmental abuse because it helps reduce the production of clothes.
