Happy Sustainability Day

Sustainability is a word we hear increasingly on a mainstream level, but perhaps overuse and greenwashing have slightly tarnished its original meaning.

So, what is sustainability really about?

Nowadays, we tend to reduce it to environmentally friendly products and behaviour. Yet, a sustainable world can only be achieved by combining three things: a healthy planet, a thriving economy, and people’s well-being. More than ever, we need to understand what sustainability involves. Knowledge is the first step, right before action.

charity shops are an essential part of the circular economy, promoting sustainability by extending the life of clothing, reducing waste, fostering conscious consumption, supporting charitable causes, and educating communities about sustainable practices.
