Why We Support Shopping Second-hand

Okay, so it’s not just the love for bargain shopping that makes the Co Gear team a big fan of op shops – it’s about how it reduces the impact on our environment as well. Opting to purchase second-hand saves additional pollutants such as dyes and bleach being released into the environment, as opposed to when new garments are made.
