My brand new jacket from second hand source.
People think that buying second hand means used and scruffy. This is not true.
Because of the overconsumption lots of people try to resell items that they never used. And I am happy to buy them.
Buying second hand is a bit a of paradox sometimes, I feel. We buy second hand to reduce demand of new products. But if there is an outlet (eg: charity shop) for people to sell/give away their unwanted stuff to buy more new stuff, then we are just facilitating their buying new stuff, no?
Anyway, by not purchasing new clothing items I am not only reducing demand but also raising awareness of reusing object that we already have, and maybe make wearing second hand clothes more acceptable.
