Is It Sustainable If It’s Unobtainable?
This Redditor is so flipping frustrated with people who raid thrift stores for upcycling projects and those who revamp sad-looking houses to boost their bank accounts that they have written an itemized list detailing everything wrong with the side hustle. They don’t hate the player; they just hate the game.
Upcycling is a creative way of repurposing our worn out stuff so it don’t take a trip to the dump, adding waste to overflowing landfills, but u/vertgirl127 argues it drives the price of second-hand items higher, making it more difficult to get a good deal, and trendy décor styles are bound to expire. Who will regret this fad in the future? Likely not the people who are making money from it.
