The First Ever “Second Hand” Shop has Opened in the Maldives

“Resale Wave”, the first ever shop in the Maldives selling second hand products has been opened.

According to an interview of the owner, Sizee Ahmed on Dhiyares local media, the main aim of opening the shop is to promote awareness for less waste and environmentally friendly lifestyle while most products can be used for a second time or can be recycled. The owner further stated that the inspiration came from the increased demand for second hand products in the Maldives and experiences of vintage stores encountered during travelling abroad.
