Fashion Is More Than Just The Clothes We Wear – It’s The World That We Live In 

It’s true that nothing speaks to fashion more than luxury, designer brands that make our eyes water with every glance. It’s true that the feel and look of authentic designer handbags instantly beats out the low-end costume brands. And it’s true that style isn’t just about the clothes we wear, the accessories we love, or the trends that we follow – it’s about an attitude, a mindset, and the world that we live in. 

Fast Fashion Is Killing The Planet 

Did you know that fast fashion is actually killing the planet faster than the carbon emissions that come from our cars and vehicles? It’s true! That’s because the fashion industry has never been larger, more expansive, and more productive than ever before. Today, fashion manufacturers are constantly pumping out brand new products, ultimately increasing their carbon footprint and dwindling our resources at an astonishing pace. 

  • The clothing and shoe industry account for more than 8% of the global climate impact. 
  • This number is more than all international flights and sea-based shipping logistics combined. 
  • 1.2 billion metric tons of greenhouse gasses are released into the atmosphere each year. 

Sustainability Meets The World of Luxury Fashion 

Here at LuxeDuJour, we’re firm believers that we can play a role in protecting the world around us. We can do more than simply sell handbags, deliver our promise on authenticity and provide an exceptional shopping experience for every last customer – for us, it’s more than that.

We sell pre-owned handbags without sacrificing the quality or the integrity of the product itself. 

We ship our items in reused boxes so yes, it may not be the prettiest brand new packaging on the outside but it’s what’s on the inside that counts doesn’t it? Plus! Our clients have loved our recycled boxes because they say it definitely prevents theft and they can hide it from their spouse haha!

We’re constantly looking for new ways to give back to our world and to preserve the health of the environment!

Each of our authentic designer handbags has been born again and our planet can live a little longer…

For us, nothing is more important than doing everything we can to protect the integrity of our designer handbags, which means that going the extra mile to recycle, to reduce our carbon footprint, and to reuse wherever possible has become integral to our business practices. 

Bringing Value Back To Something Old 

When our consignors approach us with a pre-loved handbag a spark lights up in our eyes – not simply because of the beauty of these products, but because we’ve just been given the chance to re-purpose these items, reuse them, and re-home them to someone who wants to save money on pre-owned items and saving the planet while we’re at it! 

We do this, knowing that every step of the way, we’re not contributing to the detriment of the environment. And while you might not realize it, fashion for us goes beyond buying and selling luxury handbags – it begins with the world that we know and love, and it ends there too. 

So join our Luxedujour community today to stay fashionable while reducing our carbon footprint!
