The Greatest Shops For Shopping for And Promoting Pre-Beloved Designer Items

Sustainability has become a huge trend over the last few years, and we owe none other than Gen Zs for pioneering a whole movement into the highly wasteful fashion industry. As some fashion brands have taken accountability and tried to introduce a more sustainable approach into their business models, some have also tried to greenwash their consumers. As consumers, it is vital to be more mindful and not contribute to the superfluous industry by re-selling our old or unused items rather than throwing them away. We should be more responsible with our shopping choices and what is more responsible than purchasing pre-loved items and supporting small businesses? Nothing, which is why we have rounded up the best small and renowned businesses for buying and selling second-hand luxury items so you don’t have.
