Every Action has an Equal and Opposite Reaction - Newton

Sir Isaac Newton
I love to hear how people have taken and refashioned used or vintage garments or textiles. When we reuse, we reduce waste and that's a good thing, right?
But what happens to the jobs of those who sell new fabrics or those who weave or create new textiles? And the farmers or growers? And the seamstresses and designers, and on and on...

I'm not saying conservation isn't good. But there are consequences.
