Secondhand September

It goes without saying that Manifesto Woman supports #secondhandseptember … a wonderful initiative of Oxfam’s launched this month. To take part is simple (in theory) – you pledge to buy nothing new for the whole month. Tens of thousands have already done so.

We could say that ‘secondhand shouldn’t just be for September’ etc, but something is better than nothing and it only takes a month to change a habit, so…

You can read more and take the pledge on the Oxfam site here.

Full marks for the campaign with Stella Tennant and her daughter Iris – it’s so important to elevate secondhand from the realms of slightly stinky charity shops and show how glamorous and aspirational it can be.

Bravo all round.
