SheIn Taps Into Second-Hand Market, Greenwash?
Shein launches a resale platform with the goal of speeding up delivery to the US. Another green wash attempt or an honest step towards sustainability?
- The app will enable customers to buy and sell used Shein clothing.
- From their press release:
“At Shein, we believe that it is our responsibility to build a future of fashion that is equitable for all, while also accelerating solutions to reduce textile waste,” said Shein global head of ESG, Adam Whinston, of the initiative.
- No amount of reselling can erase the fact that SheIn clothing contains lead, or that their workers have to make a minimum of 500 garments a day in order to get $500 a month or that they upload 1000 articles of clothing a week to their website.
