I just read an article about clothing rental. The point was that people buy clothes, wear them once or twice and leave them hanging in a closet 99% of the time. If instead of buying new clothes, especially for big occasions, we rented them then less clothes need to be produced and sit around do nothing.
Since the environment cost of producing clothing is actually really high, this sounds like a good idea in the environmental sense. There are other points of view that say it doesn't really work that way due to more frequent heavy cleaning and delivery and pick up of rentals, etc.
My question is how do you feel about the idea of renting clothing when you need it, instead of buying and owning it?
