WHY BUY NOTHING NEW?

Simply put. We’re using too much stuff.

“We’re living beyond our means – we’re consuming 50% more natural resources than our Earth’s ecosystems can replenish.” – WWF One Planet Living

Looking into the ethics and supply chain of everything can seem overwhelming, so a simple starting place for us, was to buy less and buy second hand.

Extending the life of existing goods (buying second, up-cycling, re-cycling, sharing, swapping etc) maximises the energy and finite resources that goes into our stuff while keeping it from landfill.

If you’re keen to drill down and learn more, there’s a super range of resources out there to help.
