Fashion generates 4% of the world’s waste each year, accounting for 92 million tonnes of landfill. Xupes promotes fashion re-cycling not only through its collection of pre-owned and vintage designer handbags for sale, but also through its consignment, exchange and 'sell an item' schemes. This culture of recycling helps to minimise the effects on the environment with fewer items contributing to the enormous amounts of waste each year. Emma has curated an edit of thirty pre-owned handbags, including unique, rare and one-off pieces which will be available to buy on Xupes.com from the 16th of October until the 13th of December. Xupes will donate a proportion from the sale of each bag from the collection to the UAL centre for sustainable fashion.

The collection of handbags will be displayed at a one-off ticketed event 'Xupes: In Talks With Emma Hill' at the environmentally conscious hotel, One Aldwych, on the 23rd October 2019. Joining Emma at the event will be Grace Richmond from Eco-age, author and fashion journalist Katherine Ormerod and Reece Morgan, Xupes’ Head of Handbags and Accessories, who will be discussing and exploring the environmental benefits of buying pre-owned items.

"A well looked after designer handbag can easily last a lifetime. Some of our handbags are over 40 years old and are still in beautiful condition. Not only do these items offer our customers the opportunity to own something unique and a piece of fashion history, they also promote sustainable shopping and encourage people to consider buying something which may have long ago contributed to landfill."

"I’ve become increasingly aware of the impact my shopping habits have on the environment, especially as an influencer. Buying vintage from pre-owned sites such as Xupes is a much more sustainable way of shopping and means that I can still buy the designer bags that I love without feeling bad about it. I also see it as investing in a piece of history, vintage has more character and often a little story behind it which I now value more than a quick trip to a department store"

The sustainable panel talk with Emma is just one of several moments on Xupes’ journey to a more sustainable future. The business is endeavouring to change all of its packaging to sustainable materials in 2020 with ambitions for an overall move to being ‘paper free’ by 2025. These come alongside exciting plans for UK retail launch, where Xupes are also looking to incorporate recycled materials in the interior fit out wherever possible, with sustainability at the forefront of all future business growth plans.
