Why Shop Second Hand goods?
Why shop second-hand goods? You may have heard that we recently opened our online consignment store. To say we are excited is an understatement. The Blue Nest Home consignment store is carefully curated to bring you the best goods for your home.
Not sure what consignment means? Our clients bring in items and Blue Nest Home sells them. Most of the items in our store are second hand mixed in with a few brand-new items.
If you are new to buying used, let us tell you some benefits of buying consigned goods at Blue Nest Home.
SHOPPING SECOND-HAND GOODS HELPS THE ENVIRONMENT.
Buying used creates less waste. Most times, household items are contributors to landfills. By purchasing second-hand goods, you are doing your part to reduce waste by eliminating those goods from becoming trash and extending the life of the item. Who doesn’t love to save the planet?
THERE IS LESS OR NO PACKAGING.
New products come with loads of packaging (box, plastic, foam, etc.). Not all of the materials that come with new items are recyclable. The products do not typically come with additional packaging/waste when you buy used, which means reduced waste.
SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES AND ENCOURAGE COMMUNITY BUILDING.
Supporting local businesses stimulates local economies by cycling money back into the community. Forbes.com states, “The tax revenue made through sale taxes from local businesses supports the local government. This is then used to reinvest in the community. However, big box retailers often receive tax breaks from local governments that don’t give local businesses such a luxury. By choosing to invest money into a large big box chain elsewhere, local communities won’t reap any of the benefits.”
