“The goal is to serve the exponentially growing demand of French consumers for second-hand clothing. This market is expected to double by 2027,” said Lenia Karallus, Chief Commercial Officer Fashion at momox. “Entering the French market is part of our long-term strategy to promote the circular economy in Europe; at a time when the textile industry emits 1.2 billion tons of greenhouse gases per year, which is about 10 percent of global emissions. Sustainable and responsible solutions for consumers are a key factor in limiting the impact of fashion on the environment.” Lenia Karallus further explains, “Our recent analyses have shown that buying used clothing at momox generates up to 59 percent less CO2 than buying new.”
“The enthusiasm for second-hand fashion is not a new phenomenon, but Covid-19 and the economic crisis have changed the demands of consumers and greatly accelerated the digitalization of the market. This is especially true for the younger generation, who see second-hand fashion as a solution to the problem of waste and fast fashion, without compromising on quality and practicality,” explains Heiner Kroke, CEO of momox.
