The environment and the importance of secondhand trade
In 2105 users at Schibsted’s five major marketplaces for secondhand shopping potentially saved 12.5 million tons of carbon dioxide. That is the equivalent of flying 1,100 times around the globe with an Airbus 380. Secondhand trade is great for the environment, now we know just how great says Lena K Samuelsson, EVP Communication and CSR at Schibsted Media Group.
