Owning pre-loved clothing is another way of significantly helping the environment. Rather than simply discarding our remaining merchandise we’ll be holding a clearance sale that will allow customers the opportunity to buy their favourites and rent the rest!

Here are some of the reasons why you should buy pre-loved clothing:

Buying pre-loved clothing reduces pollution

It’s hardly a secret that the fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries on the planet. Did you know that it takes 2,700 litres of water to make one shirt? To put it into another perspective, that’s enough for one person to drink for two and a half years! By owning pre-loved clothing, you can reduce the need to manufacture new items. It reduces the need to use new natural resources and it saves the amount of pollution that gets released into the air and water.

Never compromise on quality

Instead of giving in to the impulse buys and trendy statement items, go for items that you know will last forever. This will again, reduce the demand for harmful and unnecessary manufacturing and ultimately, reduce the amount of fashion waste that goes to landfill! Instead, you’ll have a more thoughtful wardrobe made up of your staples, pre-owned or rented products that are high-value while extending the product’s lifecycle.

Slow down the harmful fast-fashion consumption culture

Since the birth of the ‘fast-fashion’ linear business model, we’re quick to discard our items without understanding the negative impacts it has on the people who make the clothes and our environment. Did you know that non-biodegradable fabrics can sit in landfills for up to 200 years? We don’t stop to realise that our ancestors held onto clothing items that had sentimental value which in time would go on to be classified as ‘vintage treasures’. Buying pre-loved clothing means we’re not giving into the demand for new products, thus slowing down the supply.

GlamCorner exists because we care about the environment and we aim to revolutionise the fashion industry and make it more sustainable. Renting is a way in which you can recycle clothes and cut down on waste and pollution. Purchasing a pre-loved item extends our products’ lifecycle and closes the harmful loop of the fashion cycle.

It’s a win-win situation! Enjoy our massive clearance sale and purchase guilt-free that dress you rented once and absolutely loved or the one which will become your new favourite.
