Buying second-hand goods is environmentally friendly
When you buy a pre-loved item, you can prevent the manufacture and sale of a similar item. It’s a great way to recycle and prevent usable products from ending up in a landfill. From electronics to books and magazines, there are plenty of options for you to buy. As a green shopper, you can be more eco-conscious by purchasing a working coffee machine from the application shop. Vinyl turntables are back in vogue thanks to the new DJs. In the books and magazines section, you may be able to grab yourself a rarity. Older editions of certain books that command greater value are considered to be collectables.
Pre-owned clothes from the GoEthical ethical marketplace
The perception of buying used clothes is fast changing. Eco-conscious shoppers have started embracing this trend to promote recycling. Many are aware that the fashion industry is one that generates a massive amount of waste. Infact, the fashion industry is considered to be the second most polluting industry in the world. Retro fashion is back in style. Actress Emma Watson and Princess Kate (Middleton) are well-known for their efforts in recycling clothing. You can be a flag bearer for environmentally sustainable clothing as well. Browse the baby, vintage and recycled clothing section on the GoEthical mobile app to select your favourites.
Sustainable and ethical fashion means recycling
When clothes are used up to their complete lifespan, they may reach a landfill only 10 years from now. Prevention of waste is only one of the factors that prompt people to buy pre-owned clothing. The garments industry is one of the largest consumers of water on the planet. Believe it or not, 1,800 gallons of water can go into making a pair of jeans! The shortage of water on the planet is predicted to be the next environmental disaster. By recycling garments, you can contribute towards the conservation of the planet’s most valuable resource. There are plenty of second-hand apparel choices on the GoEthical shop UK. For ethical online shopping, check out the recycled fashion brands on the marketplace app.
