Green Tips (Jul 2021) - Choose Second-hand

Benefits of buying second-hand

1. Saving money

You may easily find your favourite brands and designer items second-hand at a lower price.

 

2. Extending an item’s lifecycle

Let others get good use out of the things that are in great condition but you don’t use them for whatever reason.

 

3. Reducing environmental impact

It helps preserve energy and natural resources. It also means less waste, emissions, unfair wages and animal cruelty.

 

4. Slowing down consumption

We can use resources more effectively and reduce the demand for new products.
