Swap, Don't Shop

Swap, Don't Shop

Chances are you have 1 to 30 garments in your closet that you don’t wear. These lifeless clothes are taking up space and messing with your feng shui. With fall around the corner, now is a great time to consider doing a purge.

Today is National Second Hand Wardrobe Day and here are a few simple steps you can take to be environmentally and financially smart about decluttering:

  • Host your own clothing swap; click here for tips from Real Simple
  • Check out one of our fave IG accounts @selltradeslowfashion to list and sell your high quality ethical pieces. 
  • Make a donation to Goodwill, Dress for Success, the Salvation Army or the Vietnam Veterans of America; don’t forget to get a receipt for a tax write off.
  • Take photos of all your garments, create a Google photo gallery and share the link with family and friends on social or via email; as items are claimed delete the pics, ask folks to pay for shipping via Venmo or PayPal or even better, arrange a happy hour to drop off the item in person.
  • Sell your clothes online with thredUP or Poshmark
