There's a couple of other great alternatives to selling clothes online that we have also included towards the bottom.
Why we use eBay, Depop and Vinted
At Green Heart Collective, we sell our second hand fashion across a range of online platforms. This of course includes our website, but we also use second hand selling sites such as eBay, Depop and Vinted.
You can find lots of preloved high-street fashion on our Vinted. This is where we sell brands such as H&M, Primark, FnF, TU.
And we use eBay for items that don't quite fit in with our Depop, Vinted or on our website! You can also find lots of quality yoga gear, as well as various collectibles.

We also like this app called Untagged, where you can turn your clothes into tokens. You can then use these tokens to update your wardrobe. Again, you might not be selling your clothes but you can still trade something in that doesn't fit or you no longer love for something that piques your fancy.
