High-street fashion trends might be fun at the moment, but they can also be incredibly damaging to the environment. This is why many are now looking for more sustainable fashion brands and preloved clothing for ways that can incorporate sustainability into their everyday routines.

Thrifting, charity shopping and rummaging through vintage clothing stores are all ways you can shop more sustainably, plus you’ll find one-of-a-kind pieces that are even better than what you’d typically find in a high street store. 

While rummaging through these stores is fun in person, there are also online buying and selling clothing sites that do the hard work for you, picking out the best designer and one-off pieces and selling them at more affordable prices. Want to know where to head? Here are the best buying and selling clothing sites in the UK. After all, one person’s rubbish is another person’s treasure…

Vinted

Chances are, you’ll have seen Vinted pop up all over your Insta and YouTube ads, but it really is worth checking out if you’re on the search for trendy pieces or you fancy decluttering your wardrobe by selling your own stuff. 

If you’re looking to sell and wondering how it works, it’s incredibly simple. All you have to do is download the app, list your items with photos, and descriptions and set your price. Then once someone is interested, you’ll need to package up your parcel and then it’s finally payday! What’s great about Vinted is that they don’t have any selling fees, meaning you’ll get your pennies as soon as the buyer confirms they’ve received the items in fine condition. 

Grabbing bargain items works in a similar way, except you scroll through the items, pick out the one you want and then wait until the postman posts the parcel through your letterbox.
