Updated: May 23

A recent study conducted in 2022 by Hammonds Furniture suggests that Britons throw away ยฃ2.2 billion worth of homeware each year (source:

That's millions of items thrown away, and a lot of money in the trash can! ๐Ÿช‘๐Ÿ›‹๏ธ๐Ÿ—‘๏ธ

While most of the homeware items thrown away are smaller, lower-cost items (candles, linen, blankets etc.), a large amount of the furniture we produce finds its way straight to landfill around the world. In fact, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that 9 million tons of furniture ends in landfill every single year! (source:

That's a shame, especially when such pieces of furniture can be reused, donated or sold (to friends, family, neighbour's, charities, etc).

The circular economy is all about efficiency. Your waste ๐Ÿšฎ, is my treasure ๐Ÿช™, and value gets preserved and amplified within a closed system โ™ป๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฐ

We understand that finding places for circular consumption in your local area is not always an easy task. There is a lot of information available, making it hard for such venues to stand out and for us, as consumers, to find them. That is exactly why we've created Ganddee Maps ๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ๐Ÿ“, to be the dedicated platform for circular, second-hand, and sustainable shops to stand out and reach their audience.

Are you looking for sustainable homeware and furniture in London? Wise decision! Second-hand furniture shopping allows you to find unique and beautiful pieces for a fraction of the cost. So, if you're on the lookout for a new sofa, a second-hand table and chairs, or some pre-loved homeware items, then search no more! Visit, select the "Furniture" filter, and get the list of shops selling donated or second-hand furniture in the big city!

Finding furniture charity shops and second-hand furniture shops in London has never been so easy with Ganddee.

The more purchasing power we direct towards circular places, the faster we can transition to a more sustainable world! Let's put our money where it matters.
