  5. Towers of landfill waste and the impacts of pollution are very real issues. As more and more people make the shift to intentionally make green lifestyle choices, there is also a move to embrace eco-friendly wardrobe choices. This may mean using built in wardrobes and wardrobe solutions to best utilize and view what you already own, or periodically donating clothing that you no longer wear and buying new to you choices from thrift or consignment stores.
