Second hand goods
...previously used or owned: secondhand clothes.
...dealing in previously used goods: a secondhand bookseller.
...after another user or owner: He bought it secondhand.
Second-hand goods can benefit the purchaser as the price paid is lower than the same items bought new.
Selling unwanted goods second-hand instead of discarding them obviously benefits the seller.
Recycling goods through the second-hand market both reduces use of resources in manufacturing new goods, and diminishes waste which must be disposed of, both significant environmental benefits. However, manufacturers who profit from sales of new goods lose corresponding sales. Scientific research shows that buying used goods reduces carbon footprint and CO2 emissions significantly compared to the complete product life cycle, because of less production, raw material sourcing and logistics. Often the relative carbon footprint of production, raw material sourcing and the supply chain is unknown. A scientific methodology has been made to analyze how much CO2 emissions are reduced when buying used goods like second hand hardware versus new hardware.
