Good to know: Use of resources in the production of new items

When buying new things, we often don't think about how or under what conditions they are manufactured. So we want to give a little insight into it. Don't worry, we don't want you to feel guilty. If we all ask ourselves every now and then whether we actually need a new pair jeans or the most up to date phone, we can achieve a lot. Could something used work in its place?

Almost 3,000 litres of water are used to produce a single pair of jeans.

The production of a T-shirt requires 2.1 kg of Co2. Jackets take even more at 17.2 kg.

To produce 1,000 books, at least 7 trees have to be cut down. "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" was published by Carlsen in 2000 with a launch run of 1 million copies. That alone equates to at least 7,000 felled trees.

Thanks to our business model and with the help of our customers, we have already achieved a great deal by buying and selling used books, media items and clothing & accessories.
