Isenhour featured on 1010 WINS In Depth episode about thrifting

Cindy Isenhour, assistant professor of anthropology and climate change at the University of Maine, was featured on the 1010 WINS In Depth podcast discussing whether thrifting is contributing to fashion’s culture of excess. Isenhour discussed the resource loops of thrifting, particularly with respect to the growing resale market. “Some people that are looking at this from a lifecycle perspective and particularly thinking about issues like shipping, I think people are concerned that we might see rebound effects in the resale market. If you’re moving a lot of things through these resale platforms very quickly … there could be some rebound effects where maybe the benefits aren’t as strong as if people for example were keeping things in their wardrobe longer,” Isenhour said.
