Second Hand September from Oxfam

Oxfam have launched a campaign to encourage individuals to extend the lifespan of clothes and reduce the throwaway culture that has developed in the UK and beyond. The devastating impact of this to the environment has been well document and Oxfam are encouraging us to resist purchasing new clothes for 30 days and instead buy second hand clothes online or in your local Oxfam shop.

For these 30 days, and beyond, Oxfam are encouraging society to:

  • REDUCE OUR WASTE.
  • REUSE OUR PRE-LOVED ITEMS
  • RECYCLE OUR UNWANTED CLOTHES
  • REINVEST IN COMMUNITIES

For more information, click here. You can find your local Oxfam shop here.
