Second Hand Fashion is In and We’re Loving It!
We can all admit that some of us are actually members of clothing buy and sell groups on Facebook, if not, maybe Carousell app? It’s now quite common to actually purchase clothes from each other, thanks to the internet and social apps for connecting all of us. The question is, does this solve at least a bit of zero waste movement? From celebrities to influencers, they got actual Instagram pages that are dedicated to their secondhand clothing, and people ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. Hey, most of the stuff they sell are in pristine condition and you get to buy them for half of their original price.
The great part about this secondhand buying culture is that, it’s pretty much a purchase loop. There’s your original buyer who buys it for its full price, then gets sick of it, sells it for half its price or discounted. Then there’s you, who can’t resist good deals online. Nobody will know anyway, and you get to save money from paying full price. Thrift shops are making a comeback too! With influencers covering ukay-ukays in their vlogs, people get more curious about it.
