The reasons behind our Pre-Owned Rack initiative.
When you understand the grave impact the fashion industry has in the world, you become a second hand clothes lover.
In 2019 we inaugurated the Swaprack, now called Pre-Owned Rack, a space for friends and clients to sell second hand clothes that can find a new loving owner.
This idea grew from our mission to be a store that provides amazing sustainable options to customers around the world.
But why would one even buy used clothes you ask?
We have 3 incredible reasons! We’re sure they’ll have you scrolling through our Pre-Owned page, to grab the best thrifted finds out there.
BUYING SECOND HAND PROMOTES SUSTAINABLE FASHION
Sustainable fashion means saying GOODBYE to fast fashion.
It references clothing and accessories that are produced or obtained in an eco-friendly and socially responsible way.
Responsibly obtained clothes are those from: vintage stores and pre-owned retailers.
REDUCE FAST FASHION WASTE & DEMAND
When you purchase second hand clothes, you help reduce the demand for fast fashion.
Nowadays people buy fast fashion and discard it easily.
These clothes end up in landfill, contaminating the planet, while more clothes are produced. And so the cycle continues…
If we reduce the fast fashion demand, we reduce waste and incite responsible purchases.
EXTEND A GARMENT’S LIFE CYCLE
Another man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
All those gowns, jackets and jeans you no longer like or no longer fit can find a new owner.
If you dedicate time and money to purchase high quality and timeless clothes, you shouldn’t throw them away once they’re not your style… You should re-sell them!
