06-08-2021 07:00

Depop is a shopping app. It is very popular among young people. They buy and sell clothes on Depop. Young people care about the planet. They buy used clothes and accessories. Used things are not new. Somebody wears them before.

Moira Campos is 20 years old. She sells clothes on Depop. It is her job.

Moira is an influencer. 40,000 people follow her. Moira´s brother helps her with her business.

Some people say that Depop can make problems for big clothing companies. Another problem is that people can make a lot of money on Depop. They buy very cheap clothes. Then they sell them for a lot more.

Difficult words: popular (something that many people like), accessory (things like jewelry, hats, gloves, or handbags), influencer (a person who influences other people; influence is when other people do or use the same things as the influencer), cheap (not very much money or not very well made).
