The average lifespan for an item of clothing is 3.3 years. A whopping 336,000 tonnes of used clothing are sent to landfill every year in the UK.Second Hand September
Last year Oxfam launched Second Hand September as a way of helping us move towards more sustainable consumption. This year one of the ways in which we can help to Build Back Better is to buy only second hand clothes for the month of September. In fact, to buy second hand for many things. Or perhaps to declutter some of those overfilled wardrobes and donate some of your surplus to charity!
