A recent YouGov survey has revealed that 63 per cent of British people have purchased second hand clothes, the Beacon surveyed its readers on social media to find out whether Monmothians fit the norm.
From a survey through the Beacon’s Twitter account (@MonBeacon) it was revealed that 50 per cent of readers polled said they have bought a lot of clothes from Monmouth’s charity shops, with 33 per cent saying they have purchased a few items - 83 per cent in total.
Only 17 per cent of respondents said that they have not purchased any.
Nationwide, the most common reason shoppers say they choose second hand is down to saving money (67 per cent), then to support charities (40 per cent) with environmental reasons coming in third. However, people with more second hand clothes tend to put more importance on the environmental reasons.
