Second Hand September

About Second Hand September

This is Second Hand September’s fifth year in Ireland, and it promises to be more fabulous than ever! Taking part in Second Hand September is a powerful way of recycling and buying stylish outfits that don’t cost the earth. By shopping second hand and more sustainably, you’re giving clothes a longer life, slowing down fast fashion, and helping to protect our planet. Learn more about the Second Hand September campaign from Oxfam Ireland’s website here.

Buy second hand at charity shops across Ireland

Join the #SecondhandSeptember mission and commit to only buying secondhand throughout the month. Will you accept the challenge? Embark on your secondhand shopping journey by discovering your nearest charity shop on Charity Retail Ireland’s website here. Let’s make this September a month of sustainable choices and conscious consumption!
