Don’t buy new this Black Friday

Shoppers in Buckinghamshire are being urged to not buy new this Black Friday (25 November), by grabbing a bargain at their local reuse shop.

FCC Environment, one of the UK’s leading recycling and waste management companies, and South Bucks Hospice are encouraging consumers to buy pre-loved items this Black Friday in a bid to raise money for the work that South Bucks Hospice does, and to move items up the waste hierarchy.

From kids’ toys to furniture, and from kayaks to vintage homewares, the two reuse shops in Buckinghamshire are stocked full of good-quality second hand items waiting to be snapped up.

FCC Environment’s Reuse Development Manager, Gemma Green commented: “With the current cost of living crisis, and ever-squeezed household budgets people are looking for more and more ways to save money and find a bargain. For those looking to grab a bargain this Black Friday I’d urge you to come and visit either the High Wycombe or Aston Clinton reuse shop to see the full range of items we have for sale.”

“Buying a good-quality second hand item isn’t just good for your bank account, but it’s good for the environment too as more items are given a new lease of life, diverting them away from landfill and creating a more circular economy. Why not do your bit for South Bucks Hospice and the planet and grab a bargain from one of Buckinghamshire’s two reuse shops.”

The proceeds from items sold at the reuse shops go to South Bucks Hospice, which supports people living with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses through the provision of specialist palliative care.

Both the Aston Clinton and High Wycombe reuse shops are open daily from 9am – 4pm at College Road North, Buckinghamshire, HP22 5EZ and Clay Lane, Booker, Buckinghamshire, SL7 3DJ.
