Susana really likes the idea of shopping secondhand. To her, it means contributing to a more sustainable economy and it made her happy to purchase her kids’ schoolbooks through Vibbo.
“I was surprised to see students and parents selling their books and posting so many details. It was a fun experience and I got to meet very interesting people.”
To contribute to recycling new books that otherwise would not have been used again makes her proud. And she believes that living by: ”I’m lazy, I prefer to just buy it new” just doesn’t work anymore.
Susana also has some good advice for shopping secondhand: don’t rush, spend time looking for what you want and meet with people.
“Second hand shopping is fun and you’re contributing to a social cause.”
