Over the last 50 years, the fashion industry has become one of the world’s most polluting industries. Fast fashion is a particular problem with 235 million items of clothing sent to UK landfill last year.
Bucking that trend is One Cherry, an online platform aiming to make sustainable, second-hand shopping easy and convenient for everyone. The company launched in Edinburgh in the summer of 2018 and plans to expand over the UK, taking more shops online.
