    Alice Sérane, "Prefer the Old and Used to the New"

    Welcome to our second interview! Prefer the old and used to the new. And where is that possible? For example, at the Red Cross Shop in the city center of Karlstad. There you can easily buy second-hand stuff like clothes, books, household goods or electronic devices. In the second episode we have the pleasure of introducing the head of the Red Cross Shop Alice Sérane. There we were talking about the foundation of the shop, their business model and environmental goals but also about Alice’ personal attitudes towards sustainability.
