Rachel is a mum of three (soon to be four!) and lives in south west London. Her long-held love for charity shop bargains was reignited when her eldest, Lucas, was born in her attempts to address our consumerist society and reduce our waste. Here, Rachel gives us her top tips on buying second-hand and why we should all be doing it.
I have a confession to make. I didn't use cloth nappies with my son! To be honest, I didn't know much about them when he was born. I still associated cloth nappies with the old terry towelling ones held with safety pins! But they are so much better now, and there are lots of reasons we should use them. So if you're starting out, have a read of our handy guide, and don't forget, lots of our clothes are cut to fit over cloth bums!
