After Fast Fashion, It's Now Time to Fight Fast Homeware: The Case For Sustainable Homeware.

Updated: May 23, 2023

A recent study conducted in 2022 by Hammonds Furniture suggests that Britons throw away £2.2 billion worth of homeware each year (source: https://lnkd.in/eHwxdRKS).

That's millions of items thrown away, and a lot of money in the trash can! 🪑🛋️🗑️


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: https://lnkd.in/er4bqHPs)


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 🚮, is my treasure 🪙, and value gets preserved and amplified within a closed system ♻️💰


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 🗺️📍, to be the dedicated platform for circular, second-hand, and sustainable shops to stand out and reach their audience.
