Riding Towards Sustainability: How Consigning Your Equestrian Gear Can Make a Global Impact

Apr 19, 2024

The secondhand/consignment industry has emerged as a significant player in promoting sustainability and reducing environmental impact both in the United States and globally. According to ThredUP's 2021 Resale Report, the resale market is expected to reach $64 billion by 2024 in the U.S. alone, and is projected to reach $350 billion globally by 2028. Online resale platforms are expected to lead the charge. This industry not only extends the lifecycle of products but also significantly reduces carbon emissions, water usage, and waste generation associated with traditional manufacturing processes.

As consumers increasingly prioritize sustainability and ethical consumption (buying an estimated 1.4 billion items secondhand that they would've otherwise bought new in 2022), the secondhand industry serves as a key driver in fostering a circular economy and mitigating the environmental footprint of the clothing and retail sectors. You're invited to join us in our efforts to minimize our carbon footprint and make the equestrian industry more sustainable!
