    Here are a few ideas to get you started:
    1. Upcycling - get creative by personalizing old clothes and accessories. You can add patches, embroidery, or fabric paint to make your old clothes better fit your personality and values.
    2. Rent or swap clothes - instead of buying new clothes, you can rent them for special occasions and swap them with others.
    3. Mix and match - you can mix and match your clothes to find unique ways to express your personality while getting creative.
