Sustainability gets talked so much these days. There are numerous blogs, newsfeeds, social media accounts, company initiatives that talk about sustainability. It may be overwhelming to understand if they are all talking about the same thing or if there are different approaches to sustainability. Let me take a stab at explaining this.
Sustainability is a broad umbrella. Wikipedia defines ‘Sustainable Living‘ as,
“a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or society’s use of the Earth’s natural resources and personal resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet”.
There are many different lifestyle changes that one can make to live a more sustainable life. You can make changes in the way you consume food, or shop for clothes, or reuse your existing stuff, or create DIY solutions for home and personal use, and many more. Similarly, there are companies offering sustainability solutions on either some or all of these fronts.
Through GoodsAgain we are focusing on one niche area – reducing the waste from earth i.e. an attempt to reduce the large amount of trash that gets created every day, piling landfills and clogging oceans. If technology can help to create brand new products out of existing stuff, why not try use that existing stuff than spending resources to create raw materials from the scratch.
We started GoodsAgain to focus on products that are made out of recycled or reclaimed materials. In order to keep it relevant and close to our mission, we always attempt to select products that have a large proportion of raw materials coming from recycled or reclaimed materials.
We are excited to offer a large selection of modern apparel, shoes, yoga gear, and many other items which one can use with both style and pride!
