SecondHand September

Event Date: 01/09/21 - 30/09/21

Get involved in Oxfam’s Second Hand September.

Join Second Hand September and pledge to shop only second hand for 30 days or more. You’ll give clothes a longer life by keeping them from landfill. And by shopping with Oxfam, you’ll be reinvesting your money into helping the poorest people on the planet earn a fair living and beat poverty. For 30 days or more only buy second hand clothes online or in your local Oxfam shop. And donate your pre-loved items! Share your one-of-a-kind finds using #SecondHandSeptember and tag @OxfamGB.

Why take part in second hand September this year?

Climate change is impossible to ignore – it’s affecting us all, and it’s pushing people deeper into poverty. People facing poverty often don’t have access to the support needed to survive and recover from extreme weather, such as clean water on tap during a drought, or house insurance to help rebuild after homes are destroyed by floods. So it’s more important than ever to act now, to prevent this global crisis from becoming a global catastrophe.

What can you do?

  • REDUCE: Reduce your waste – save great clothes from ending up in landfill.
  • REUSE: Choose to shop second hand. Reuse 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.
  • RECYCLE: When clothes have finished their life in your wardrobe – give them a new lease of life via an Oxfam shop. Or Oxfam’s postal donation service. Every garment sold raises money to fight poverty around the world.
  • REINVEST: By shopping with Oxfam you’re supporting communities to stand up and speak out for their right to a fairer and greener future.
