In August 2021, Ethical Consumer received a questionnaire response from Oxfam which stated that “sales of second-hand books in 2019/20 were £19m, making Oxfam the largest chain of second-hand booksellers in Europe”. Whilst it does sell new books, Oxfam focused largely on the sale of second hand books and thus it received half a mark under Product Sustainability.
