UFF, the Finnish second hand

07/10/2019

What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.

 

 

 

Every time we travel we discover -for us- new parts of the world, we become more conscious and pay more attention to the environment. If you are people like me, when you are abroad you willing to find out as much as you can of the authentic way of life. At the same time I never forget one of my biggest passion, the second hand fashion!

When last summer I traveled to Finland, I was very curious to learn more about their fashion habits. I didn’t have to look for so long, UFF shops are very frequent in Helsinki, they are throughout the city and I visited many of them (there are 19 second hand shops in the largest cities in Finland).

From jackets to accessories, underwear and shoes, the choice is very wide and you can make good deals!

UFF it’s not only a second hand but they also have vintage clothes at your disposal! With a wide range of prices and with enough time to go through all of clothes it’s always worth it.

UFF collects used clothes in containers in Finland, re-usable and clean, shoes and home textiles. Then the collected clothes are sorted and because of the most of them are winter clothes these are mainly sold wholesale to other European countries and the profit is used to finance UFF’s development cooperation projects.

The aim of this project is to raise money for development aid projects in Africa and in India.

 

If you want to support UFF and every other projects and at the same time you want to be sustainable, we suggest tou to buy less and above all second hands. Enjoy your shopping!
