So what does it mean to shop sustainably? Buying something pre-loved? New, but good quality? I think it depends on the type of product you are looking for, your financial situation and whether the pre-loved items available meet your requirements. Sometimes what you are looking for just isn’t available second-hand so buying it new is the only option. But if you are buying new, there are things to look out for so that your purchase ideally never ends up in landfill.
