MEDIA ALERT | NEW DAY PROCLAMATION | NATIONAL SECONDHAND SUNDAY | SUNDAY AFTER THANKSGIVING

National Day Calendar announces the founding of National Secondhand Sunday to be celebrated the Sunday after Thanksgiving. This new National Day was submitted and approved in 2022 on behalf of @poshmark, the leading social marketplace for resale and secondhand items.

With the holiday shopping season in full swing, National Secondhand Sunday offers consumers a chance to embrace and reshape the perception of secondhand gifting. Today, we want to encourage everyone to consider a secondhand gift for everyone on their list.

With the holiday shopping season in full swing, National Secondhand Sunday offers consumers a chance to embrace and reshape the perception of secondhand gifting. Today, we want to encourage everyone to consider a secondhand gift for everyone on their list.

Why Shop Secondhand? 

Now, more than ever, there is both a need and a willingness to embrace the power of secondhand gifting. In a recent 2022 survey conducted by Morning Consult, more than 90 percent of U.S. adults are open to receiving a secondhand or resale gift this holiday season. In addition, more than half of those say they are very open to receiving something secondhand.

The environmental benefits of shopping secondhand are also undeniable. Replacing just one new gift with a secondhand item has an impact on the environment. For example, gifting a vintage leather tote bag instead of purchasing a new one could save as much as 17,000 liters of water. That amount is what a single person would drink over 23 years!

Join the national movement to make secondhand shopping a regular practice. In doing so, you will make choices that support individual economic empowerment, social connection, and environmental sustainability. Read more…
