Fashion

Minimising your impact on the environment through circular fashion has never been more stylish thanks to Modsie – Australia’s luxury second-hand online store for fashion savvy enthusiasts.

As we make our way into spring/summer (or autumn/winter for our northern hemisphere readers), you might be looking through your closet wondering how to create space to make way for your new look.

You might also be thinking that you don’t want to just throw away a whole bunch of your loved items as there’s nothing wrong with them and they we expensive. It would be such a waste.

At Modsie, you can sell your pre-loved bags, shoes & accessories. It’s free to list on their platform after they have been verified by Modsie’s expert quality control team for authenticity.

Join the reuse community in style and never pay full price again for luxury items. Supporting the circular fashion community, Modsie is a destination for buying high-end designer products and rare vintage bags like the Chanel Timeless bag or the Vuitton Speedy 30 at low prices.

Why initiatives like Modsie are so important

The traditional economy works in a linear fashion: make – use – dispose  

The problem with this traditional system is that significant resources go into producing a product only to end up in landfill. This is a major missed opportunity for resource productivity.

A circular economy on the other hand, is one where the maximum value is created by reusing, repairing and recycling.

The circular economy is on the rise as more advanced technology options enter the market to process the items we longer use and turn them into usable products. Econyl® is a great example of a company that’s closing the loop. They take nylon from discarded materials and products from landfills and oceans around the world and create a regenerated nylon product given new life to what would otherwise have been lost forever.

Econyl® is now being used by some of the worlds most iconic fashion brands including Prada, H&M and countless boutiques around the world.

Creating a circular economy is important to reduce waste and the environmental impact of sending waste to landfill and improve the productivity of our planet’s resources.
