How you can take part in #SecondHandSeptember

Today I've pledged to take part in #SecondHandSeptember which is a campaign run by the charity Oxfam to raise awareness of the impact of fast fashion. They’re looking for people to take a 30 day pledge to SAY NO to buying new clothes. You can join in too by signing up here.

Why is the campaign important?

Every week 11 million items of clothing end up in landfill. Throwaway fashion is putting increasing pressure on our planet and its people - it’s unsustainable. Fast fashion is doing more harm than you may think. We are all aware about needing to cut down on plastic but most of us don't realise the impact and shocking statistics surrounding fast fashion and buying new.

After reading about the campaign on the  thrifty mum's blog I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. So the next 30 days will see me only buying second hand. On top of that I have also chosen to take part in thrifty mums  prompts over the next 30 days to help raise awareness about the real cost of fast fashion.
