The beginning of September usually signals the itch to re-stock our entire wardrobes with new season staples.
With autumn just around the corner, can you turn your back on temptation and commit to saying no toÂ new clothesÂ for 30 entire days?
Thatâ€™s what Oxfam is asking of us.
Alongside supermodel, Stella Tennant, itâ€™s launching the new initiativeÂ Second Hand September.

The initiative isnâ€™t about abstaining from shopping entirely. Instead, itâ€™s about investing in pre-loved clothing. ThisÂ sustainableÂ step wonâ€™t just help the environment, itâ€™ll likely save us money, too.
Oxfam is making it easy for us by sharing news and fashion tips from the industry.Â You can take the pledge here.
September seems like the perfect time for an initiative like this. The eyes will be on the fashion industry this September, as major labels from around the world showcase spring/summer 2020 at fashion weeks in cities from New York to London.
For those of us pledging to take part in Second Hand September, we arenâ€™t short of inspiration.

Itâ€™s easier than ever to educate ourselves on the importance of eco-friendly fashion. TheÂ Good On You appÂ is a a solid starting point to focus on the four Râ€™s of fashion: reduce, reuse, repair, resale.
Thereâ€™s also a host of â€˜grammers who are leading the way in sustainable fashion onÂ Instagram.
The resale market hasÂ grown by 9.2% in two years, with luxury retailers adding re-sale to their collections as well as high-street stores bolstering the collective conscious.
Challenge accepted, Oxfam.
