With sustainability on everyone’s mind, second-hand goods and clothing have become more on-trend. If you run a second-hand shop and need more space for stock, our storage unit Earlsfield will help.
Buying items second-hand is extremely popular right now. With climate change at the forefront of many people’s minds, more and more people are looking for ways that they can be more sustainable.
People who once bought lots of clothes, wore them a few times and then threw them away are now looking to charity shops and apps like Depop to purchase and give away or sell their clothing.
Between 2016 and 2022, the clothes resale market grew by 149% and it is forecast to rise by another 67.5% by 2026. This rise in clothing resale has run alongside a decline in sales for fast fashion brands such as Shein. Shein was once the most googled fashion retailer but at the beginning of 2023, it had seen a steady decline over a consecutive six months.
Why buying secondhand is good for us all
Firstly, buying items second-hand will decrease the negative impact you and your purchases have on the environment. This is particularly true when it comes to your clothes. The fashion industry is the second largest polluter of the environment with 85% of textiles ending up in landfills. It is also the second largest consumer of water with 700 gallons of water being needed to produce a single cotton t-shirt.
Along with the sustainability element, second-hand shopping is also a lot of fun. You can often find some fantastic, unique items for a fraction of the price that you would pay in a high street or designer store.
If you run a second-hand store you will already know all of this. The rise in popularity of second-hand shopping will have allowed your business to grow and thrive. But, you may have also seen an increase in stock as more people are choosing to either sell or give the items that they no longer want to second-hand shops.
Our storage unit Earlsfield will help you find the space for all your stock.
