Paragon Textiles Finds Hot Used Clothing Markets

Clothing manufacturers are cranking out new merchandise fast, with consumers buying, then discarding it fast too—then purchasing whatever fashions are next in line, leaving landfills and thrift shops who receive the discards to figure out how to manage them. As this take, make, dispose trajectory continues, new business models evolve to try and take on the onslaught of unwanted garments. These models range from rentals to brokerage companies that buy secondhand clothes and sell them where they can find hot markets.
