Buying second hand for the planet and our wellbeing, with Jo Spolton
Liz and Jo share staggering statistics on the impact of waste on our planet, the wellbeing benefits of buying second hand, and how we can all consume more sustainably.
Did you know that 22 million items of furniture end up in landfill in the UK every year? And fashion represents 10% of global carbon emissions?
On this episode of The Liz Earle Wellbeing Show, Liz is joined by Jo Spolton, the co-founder of Rumage, a platform designed to make second hand shopping easier.
