How to reduce waste and discover new treasures with Desibay Exchange

It’s no secret that there’s just too much stuff in the world. As landfills overflow and the world’s oceans fill up with discarded plastics and trash, it’s more important than ever for people to think hard about the ways in which they consume. So before you toss out that old, unused object, why not see if you can exchange it instead?

By trading and exchanging unwanted – but still functional – items, we can do our part towards reducing waste. Not only does this cut down on landfill, it also helps to slow the process of constantly producing new items to fulfil consumers’ needs.

So you’ve decided that you want to exchange something you don’t want for something that you do? Great – but where do you start? With Desibay’s new feature Exchange you can easily list items for sale or swap, allowing other users to reach out to you with an offer. Or, you can browse items already available on an exchange basis, to see if anything grabs your fancy.

A completely new way of shopping, Exchange isn’t just about reducing waste – it’s also a great way to welcome unexpected new treasures into your life. Who knows, you might wave goodbye to an unwanted lengha and welcome a new sari into your life. Or swap a comfy armchair for a cosy dining table for two. So go ahead and let Desibay surprise you.

How much money is collecting dust in your wardrobe?

Who doesn’t want to make some extra cash? I’m sure we all have plenty of unwanted items in our wardrobe that can make you enough money to buy a new pair of shoes, a new outfit for that special occasion or even pay for your next holiday!

And the benefits are even greater than that. I don’t want to say that ‘one person’s junk is another person’s treasure’ as that just sounds a bit cheesy, but the cliché is still very true! You could be helping someone in need of that particular item, they could be getting a bargain on their next outfit because (a) they don’t want to or (b) can’t afford to spend a small fortune on.

Don’t let the items pile up and collect dust in your wardrobe. The second-hand retail industry is booming. It’s good for everyone in so many different ways. It’s not only helping you make money but it’s reducing wastage and ultimately helping the environment.

Unfortunately, you won’t always get what you want for your item. Pricing too high is always a danger and puts people off. Your items are only worth what people are willing to pay for them and that isn’t always what seems like a fair price and one you’re happy with. Even if it is brand new!

I know your items were probably bought for more than you can sell them for but holding on to them because you feel guilty selling them at a lower price isn’t the answer. They’ll just take up space you haven’t got in the wardrobe. It’s best to make something from them as anything you do make will be a bonus!
