Hi Lucy, A well written and thought-provoking read. I like the idea of a no new clothes year for 2021 but what is your advice to the running obsessed like me? Advice is to change running shoes roughly every 800km and I run around 200km every month. This means I should be buying a new and expensive pair of shoes every 4 months. In reality I wait longer but I would like to be kinder to the planet and to my wallet.

It would be amazing if the big running shoe companies took recycling/trade in seriously.

Maybe this is an idea for my next article.

Thanks again for the inspiration!
