How can we be more aware and use fewer clothes?
Get to know the solutions that can help you
A thorough wardrobe clear-out? Or maybe the regular replacement of all your clothing? If you’re wondering how you can limit the purchase of new clothes, both to take care of the environment and of the condition of your wallet, a quick review of the clothes-selling applications below is all you need.
Right next to the tab for special sales on Zalando you can find a tab hiding a real mine of second-hand clothing that…at first sight does not differ much from the clothes presented in other sections. This is because Zalando takes responsibility for selling second-hand clothing – it takes care of the sale, delivery and even taking the photograph. A logged in user may prepare “an exchange box” consisting of clothes already bought on the website – after choosing which articles qualify for exchange, you are informed about the price offered for each item by Zalando – for the sake of experiment I checked how much my used bag is worth – 20% of the standard price, shoes – 5%, leggings – 30%. While creating your box, you can add articles offered by Zalando – you just have to take a picture of an item (preferably with a light background) and price the product. Before starting a review of your wardrobe, it is worth getting acquainted with the exchange terms and conditions that clearly state which products can be exchanged. Precisely – to be exchanged, not sold. The sum obtained from the exchange of clothing goes to a gift card you can use on the Zalando website. If you don’t want to buy anything, you can support one of the charity organisations or donate clothes to the clothing bank.
If you haven’t heard of this new Zalando function yet, then no wonder – Zalando decided not to additionally promote the Pre-Owned section – instead they just placed it next to the Sales % section highlighted in red.
Interestingly enough, Zalando has also a special application that enables direct sales between users. However, Zalando Wardrobe works only in Germany, just like the first stationary second-hand shop of the Zircle brand, located in Berlin. The city pop-up is supported by the website zircle.de – equivalent to the Polish site Pre-Owned https://www.zalando.pl/kobiety-home/
