7 Of The Best Depop Stores You Should Get To Know Before Everyone Else Does
Depop is well on its way to taking over eBay — especially for the younger generation. So if you've been sleeping on this social shopping revolution, here's a quick rundown. Depop is an app that looks a little like Instagram, but serves the same purpose as eBay. Users sell both new and pre-worn items for super affordable prices, allowing you to start a new eco-friendly shopping strategy. Some sellers have even gained "fame" for their high-quality items. With that in mind, here are the best Depop stores to know about right now.
Every single one of us knows that constantly buying new clothes is only harming the environment. But Depop is an ethical way to satisfy your fashion habit. According to the Evening Standard, 13 million people currently use the app. Many buy vintage pieces, contributing to the circular fashion economy that encourages reuse and rewear. But even buying something relatively new is still opting into the secondhand movement.
The company, thanks to its sellers, prides itself on staying ahead of the curve when it comes to trends and sustainability, reports the Evening Standard. It helps top sellers find biodegradable packaging and is hoping to collaborate with brands by giving excess fabric to Depop sellers that create their own wares.
So if you're looking for your next festival ensemble or a truly individual piece, step this way.
