Secondhand First Week is organised by fashion reuse charity TRAID, to celebrate all things secondhand while committing to using more of our existing resources, rather than buying new. It involves a week of events, workshops and initiatives between 17th – 23rd November. TRAID is also asking for people to take the #secondhandfirst pledge to encourage people to commit to sourcing a percentage of their wardrobe secondhand.
Here at Ethical Fashion Bloggers, we will be celebrating the #secondhandfirst week with a little challenge of our own. It is pretty simple really.
All you need to do is put together a fantastic outfit featuring some or all secondhand clothes, take a picture about it, post it on your blog and then send me the link to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on 16th November (UK time).
It would also be great if you could mention Secondhand First Week in your post and link back to us here at Ethical Fashion Bloggers. I will post a round up of all of the #secondhandfirst outfits on 17th November.
You could also get even more involved by wearing something secondhand every day for the week and share by submitting your photos and styling tips to email@example.com, tweet @traid using the hashtag #secondhandfirst, or post on Facebook page /TRAIDcharity.

I look forward to seeing your #secondhandfirst outfits!
