Pakistan spends its precious foreign exchange on import of used clothes and other items to meet the increasing demand of low and middle income buyers in the local market. The flea markets across the country are sprawling and filled in with these second hand items.
Over the years, Pakistan has become the top importer of reusable goods. As of 2018, it spent 284.5 million dollars on the import of used clothes alone. Same is the case of plastic and metals, which are procured for local consumption through petroleum imports or costly excavation process.
The collection system of reusable items within the country is mostly informal and works on traditional lines without value addition. This costs the nation precious revenue, foreign exchange and livelihood opportunities. Besides that, a lot of reusable resources go to the landfills, which is against the principles of circular economy being practiced and promoted in modern world.
