Young people buy clothes online – level 2

06-08-2021 07:00

Depop is a shopping app which young people and influencers use to buy and sell used clothes.

More than 30 million people from 150 countries use the app, and some experts believe that Depop will have a big impact on global companies which sell clothes.

One of the people who sells clothes on Depop is 20-year-old Moira Campos. She has about 40,000 followers and selling clothes online is her job. Moira and her brother buy used clothes, take photos of them, and then sell them. They make about 5,000 dollars a month by selling clothes online.

Young people like sustainable shopping because it is better for the planet. Yet some people argue that money could become more important than the environment.

Difficult words: influencer (a person who makes his followers on social media do, buy, or use the same things which he does), used (something that people use again or more than once), sustainable (something that people can use without harming the environment).
