Happy Spring, Friends!
The time has finally arrived to shed your scarves and ear muffs and dawn your sassy sundresses (my favorite). Spring has also, for some unknown reason, been recognized as the best time to clean house. And that is what I did! Using, thredUP‘s Clean Out Kit, I rid my closet and drawers of all the clothing that I had been neglecting for the past year. Since I’m not wearing it anymore, might as well sell it and/or give it to charity. So don’t just throw your old clothes away!
With the thredUp Clean Out Kit, thredUP sends you a huge bag that you can fill with stuff you don’t wear anymore, for consignment, and send it back for free! Anything that cannot be consigned is given to one of thredUP‘s third-party textile company partners to be upcycled. You can also choose to have your clothes donated to thredUP‘s charity partners.
Along with your thredUp Clean Out Kit, you are also sent a pamphlet to guide you through the cleanout process. It states that thredUP will accept clean, freshly washed clothing that is in good condition. The items must have no missing labels or sizes, missing or broken parts, tears/rips/holes, stains or odors. There’s also a handy stain removal guide. I guess thredUP aims to provide their customers with the best quality thrifts!
Did You Know…
The average American throws away 82 pounds of textile waste each year, which adds up to 11 million tons of textile waste from the US alone, and most of it is non-biodegradable which means it sits in landfills for 200 years or more and emits toxins into the air. – The True Cost Documentary on Netflix
I’m just trying to live…
Fashion happens to be the second most polluting industry after the oil industry due to fast fashion. On the other hand, last year, thredUP, along with its partners, saved 10 billion gallons of water and 128 million pounds of CO2. This is why I choose to consign my unwanted clothing items and/or give them to charity; the earth is too beautiful for such waste. I also get most of my clothes from thrift shops, specifically thredUP.
Want to know a secret? I haven’t shopped at an actual mall in over a year!
