Farfetch tackles sustainability with resale initiatives

Jose neves farfetchos

Luxury fashion retail platform Farfetch has launched two new initiatives to tackle sustainability in the fashion industry.

As part of its sustainability strategy, Positively Farfetch, the online platform will pilot Second Life – a handbag resale service – which allows customers to resell their unwanted designer handbags through its sister site secondlife.farfetch.com.

Users of the site are able to submit information and photographs of the bags they are selling, which will then be reviewed by Farfetch’s partner, who will suggest a price within two working days.

If the price is agreed on and after the bag has been picked up by a free courier and verified by the Farfetch team, customers will receive credits worth the value of the offer to spend on Farfetch.com.
