Buying second hand has become very trendy these days. It is economical, but also better for the preservation of nature.

Second-hand refers to products that have already been used by another person before being put back on the market. Whether it's clothes, luxury bags, watches... it's quite common to find good deals. Here are 4 reasons why you should buy second hand.


It's economical

Why afford a trendy dress or a luxury watch for 1000 euros when you can have the same model second-hand for less than 300 euros? With prices falling by more than 60%, this allows you to have fun without breaking the bank.

If your income is not large enough, it is possible to dress chic with a small budget. Many online platforms facilitate the search to allow you to find the rare pearl. Imagine the savings you will make after renewing part of your wardrobe.


It's good for the environment

The fashion and leather goods sector generates more than one billion tonnes of greenhouse gases. This represents about 2% of the planet's emissions. And the overconsumption of fashion continues at the same rate, we expect 25% of the planet's emissions by 2050.

One of the solutions would therefore be recycling to limit the impact on the degradation of our planet. So tell yourself that buying a second hand is your way of also helping to reduce greenhouse gases.


Fall on rare models

It is not always easy to shell out thousands of euros for a rare fashion piece. However, you can find them in second-hand stores or sites dedicated to luxury at low prices. This usually relates to vintage items from the 80s and 90s or fashion house designs that are coming back into fashion.

By opting for second-hand products, you even have the possibility of changing your look while staying on a fairly tight budget.


The second hand is of better quality

An item that has been used for several months or years is a guarantee of quality because it has not deteriorated over time. Whether for electronics or fashion, buying new is no longer a sign of durability. In question, the planned obsolescence which reduces the life of the products.

If you are therefore afraid of throwing your money out the window on a new item, opt instead for a brand model with an opinion on the street. Some items in leather goods look so new that they look like they have never been worn. So why rack your brains when you can find cheaper second-hand?

Remember to check the second-hand item carefully before buying it. Mentions are often made online (like new, good condition, fair condition). For an online product, read its description carefully and check if the return is authorized.
