Lily Allen must really believe the saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure" because that's exactly what she's doing at her vintage shop Lucy In Disguise.
The formerly hard pAArtying sometimes singer told Elle UK that she'll be selling some of her unwanted shiz as a way to promote "a less throw-away shopping culture".
She explained: "It’s not ethical to do that, so I’m quite happy to turn it into a business and see other people having enjoyment out of it."
Sure it's a great idea, but who would want to wear anything that she's worn!? There's no telling where they've been!

Now here's a good idea.
Come this September, New York City residents will be able to dump off old clothes that will be recycled.
The new recycling program includes placing 50 clothing bins in high traffic areas in hopes to eliminate the 190,000+ tons of textiles that ends up in New York landfills each year.
And if all goes well in the Big Apple, the program could go nationwide.
Not a bad idea. We just hope people won't get lazy and end up tossing it like they usually do.
