The Second - Hand Initiative: Spoyl's War on Pollution

“Evil are those who look away,” someone said. We at Spoyl agree!

The Problem

By the age of ten, all of us were aware of what pollution is and how to tackle it. Then how come nobody has done anything to control and contain it?

The ever-rising global warming crisis, the unacceptable pollution levels in Delhi and its consequences and the insensible arguments of skeptics are just examples which show that the world is heading towards free-fall.

Spoyl's War on Pollution - Polluted Delhi

After watching all this, the founders of Spoyl had, had enough. They decided to take the battle to one of the root causes of pollution – Fashion. But instead of fighting it from outside, they decided to make changes from within.

Calling fashion, a root cause of pollution would have surprised a few. Unfortunately, it is true! Did you know that the fashion industry is one of the top 5 contributors to pollution? Spoyl aims to change that! We want to help build a more sustainable world for future generations.

The process of manufacturing clothes involves over-use of renewable energy, which increases emission levels drastically. This includes effluents that are released into water bodies, chemical waste that is dumped in landfills and excessive emission of pollutants into the atmosphere.

The Solution

By bringing second-hand fashion into the equation, we are trying to reduce emission levels. When people start using second-hand clothes, the production of brand new products gradually decreases. Another huge positive of second-hand fashion is that clothes that usually end up in dump yards find a new lease of life.

Spoyl's War on Pollution - RRR

We at Spoyl are staunch believers in the three Rs – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. While reduce and reuse are completely in the hands of the people, we are here to help you with the last R. We help sellers find people who are in search of second-hand products and we help buyers identify quality clothes.

While we are still at the nascent stage of what we hope to become, we are making sustainable progress with every sale we make. Come be a part of this revolution. Start shopping on the Spoyl app and help us make a difference.
