Our shopping habits have changed. Instead of going to the local shopping mall, many of us are turning to the internet to make our purchases. We are able to get anything that we need, from food to furniture, clothing to cars. As a result this part of our economy has grown exponentially, as can be seen in companies such as Amazon.
One of the unfortunate consequences of this change in the way that we shop has been the closure of many of our well known and well-loved chain stores and also smaller local stores in malls and on the high street across the country.
We are never 100% sure that the product we have bought will live up to expectations.
This is especially true with regard to clothing which is the most likely item to be returned. There is no consistency with regards to sizing across the brands and coupled with the fact that most online stores offer free deliveries and free returns on their purchases, people end up buying an item in different sizes or colourways, as the ones that are not suitable can easily be returned.
Most of us manage our everyday waste disposal responsibly, by recycling and reusing where we can. We are aware of the need to minimize the trash we send to our landfills, and how important it is to curb our carbon footprint. We use professional waste and junk removal companies such as Little Green Junk when we need household or yard waste removed, as we know they dispose of this waste in a responsible manner thus preserving our environment.
We, therefore, need to be aware that our online shopping habits can undo any of the positive actions that we carry out in our daily lives.
There are many different solutions that are being worked on because our shopping habits are not going to change, so the quantity of returns will only increase. We have to find ways to lessen the impact of these returns
We expect famous brands and large manufacturers to be responsible in the way they deal with their online returns. But it is not only up to them as every online shopper needs to play their part too. We need to be aware of what is likely to happen to our returns when we shop online, find that our purchase isn’t what we expected, and then send it back.
