Oxfam's Second-Hand September
What can you do to get involved?
REUSE: Shop at Oxfam for something on trend and pre-loved. There are thousands of gems to suit every style on the Oxfam Online Shop and in your local Oxfam shop.
REDUCE: By choosing second hand you can save great clothes from needlessly ending up in landfill.
RECYCLE: When clothes have finished their life in your wardrobe – give them a new lease of life via an Oxfam shop. Every garment sold raises money to fight poverty around the world. One dress could raise enough money to buy drought-resistant seeds for a family to keep growing food despite a changing climate.
REINVEST: By shopping with Oxfam you’re reinvesting in helping people to build sustainable livelihoods around the world.
REACT: One action you can take to send is to sign the Trade Craft Exchange – calling on UK brands that are cancelling orders and breaking contracts to honour the people who made the clothes by paying them for their labour.
