3 Ways To Support Secondhand September
The Secondhand September campaign is now in its third year, with almost 150,000 people sharing the #SecondHandSeptember hashtag so far this month (that's a whopping 3x last year!).
Its a month of buying with intention and choosing renewal over waste. It’s an important statement and one that’s great fun to get stuck into. Here's how you can get involved:
1. Choose used over new for a month: Wardrobes around the UK are getting updated as we enter Autumn. This year, are you up for trying something new and refreshing your trends only with preloved gear?
2. Clear-out your wardrobe & re-sell the clothes you no longer wear: By reselling a full bag of clothes and displacing the need to manufacture new fast fashion you help save up to 3.5kg of landfill waste, 200kg of CO2e (the same as taking 40 cars off the road for a day) and 15,000 gallons of water (enough to fill 300 bathtubs).
3. Use your social platform to share the secondhand love: The preloved movement has won over millions of new fans in recent years. But many people just need an extra nudge - can you be the one to convince a first time secondhand shopper by sharing some of your favourite preloved gems? Tag us @rethreaduk and we'll reshare the love on our feed! We kicked off September with the fabulous @laura.lea.kbh (pictured) who shared with us her favourite preloved linen dress that's perfectly matched with sunny Copenhagen! ⭐️⭐️⭐
