We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our Duriana readers a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri! Maaf Zahir & Batin. As we enjoy the long weekend, stuffing our faces with delicious traditional Malay Cuisine (lots of rendang, lemang and cookies!!) we’ve listed the following 7 reasons you should consider shopping second-hand on Duriana; it can make a greater difference than you may realize.
1. Much more Affordable
Whether you shop at thrift stores, weekend bazaars or as we encourage you daily, with your mobile, on Duriana, your money stretches much farther. On average, used products are generally 50% cheaper, allowing you to save money for other important expenditures. Smart shopping, anyone?
2. You Get to Experience the Thrill of the Hunt
On Duriana, you deal in the unknown. Scouring categories and options until you have found that have-to-have item at an unbeatable price can be exhilarating. In this way, second-hand shopping is much more rewarding in a way retail shopping could never be.
3 . It’s Easier to Spot Quality
Since most of the merchandise you come across has already been broken in, you can see what has quality and what does not. (If you rather see the item in person, you have the option of chatting with the user on Duriana) Practical and affordable.
4. It’s Green!
Buying used goods cuts down on manufacturing demands and keeps more items out of the landfill! Because a large amount of man-made goods are routinely thrown away, re-using gives a longer life to common household items another family could use, saving the Earth in effect.
5. Inspire to Recycle
The flow of second-hand giving goes both ways. Items or clothes you no longer use, you can sell on the Duriana platform and offer up goods another may be searching for. The act of recycling not only enables us to feel good about our actions but, again, keeps money in the local economy and supports the green living movement.
6. Brand Names
If you’re an individual who worships the tag, you’re likely to find many recycled, brand-name clothes available. It’s a great way to suit your stylish needs while saving a bundle and helping the environment.
7. Updated Merchandise Daily
Duriana receives updates daily with tons of lisitings, so the hunt for that unique item is always new and fresh. If they don’t have what you’re looking for, chances are in a couple of days it might be present.
Because shopping is such an essential part of our consumer-driven economy, indulging in second-hand or rather pre-loved items and opportunities is a way to beneficially promote the economy, save the environment, and still satisfy your craving for unique clothes and items. Wait no more.
Till our next post, keep discovering.
