Did you know that the average American throws away 85% of their clothes each year? Yup! I used to be one of those people and that was isn’t helping the environment at all. The good news is that you can start recycling your clothes at the largest online thrift and consignment shop, Swap.com, and earn MONEY! Or you can buy from them and get the best fashion staples and brands at incredible prices! Earth day is this coming Saturday, April 22nd and I’m participating in Swap.com’s Earth day campaign where Swap.com gives users the chance to shop in honor of Earth day.
How to save money:
I just recently shopped on Swap.com and got Evie all set for her 12 month size clothes (I swear I just got her set with 9 month clothes, kids grow so dang fast). I bought 14 clothing items for less than $60. Guys, less than $60!! And I got name brands like Lucky Jeans, Old Navy, and Carter’s. I was 100% impressed with every single item that I received. Even though they were second hand, they were in quality condition, the proper sizes, and nothing was worn down or dingy.
Evie’s whole adorable outfit came from Swap.com! Could you die at the cuteness?
My purchases even came packaged and labeled like shown above, I was so impressed!
Each and every item that you see on Swap.com is a picture of the actual item so you can tell if it’s something that you would like or not and in the quality that you are happy with just by looking at the picture. They have kids/baby clothes and accessories, kids/baby toys, women’s clothes and accessories, men’s clothes and accessories, and even maternity clothes and accessories. You can shop for the whole family at any stage of life!
Most of the items that I got are shown above, there are a few not shown because, well… Evie and I were wearing them! #guilty
How to make money:
Another place that I like to recycle my clothes is at H&M. If you take in 4-5 articles of clothing in a bag they will recycle it for you and give you a 15%-20% off coupon! You can take in up to 3 bags per person per day and get one coupon per bag. I never ever ever buy anything full price at H&M. If I know I’m going to H&M I will grab a few articles of old clothing, throw them in a bag and bring them to with me so I can use my coupon at checkout! H&M uses the clothes you recycle to make more clothes! How cool is that?
I definitely prefer to recycle my clothes at Swap.com because I can get actual money and feel like I’m passing my clothes on to people who might really need them, but if you like shopping at H&M that can be a great option too!
What are you itching to buy on Swap.com? I just love their selection! Happy Earth Day!
