Going on about a ‘green world’ and throwing away less clothes is this ideal. Because there is one problem about clothes: They do not grow along with you. What amount of time you have your clothes does not matter, only the fact what you will do with them when they are to small, but still have a good ‘state’. In our generation we are lucky: Now there are developed a lot of methodes for ‘recycling’ your clothes and sometimes you even make profit!
Handing in your clothes in a shop is one way: Normally when you give a bag full of (old) clothes you will receive a discount voucher for that shop for around 15% discount for your next purchase. This method has good parts and bad ones:
– Your clothes will be recycled and not get thrown away without a new purpose.
– Only when you have the discount vouchers you are ‘forced’ to use it, so you ‘have to buy’ new clothes. What is handy when you really need something, but if you ‘have everything’ it stimulates you to buy more clothes then you needed.
Selling your clothes on United Wardrobe is the other way: You try to sell your clothes by making photos and putting them on your account. People can visit your account and order your product(s). Then you will make profit and someone else will be happy with a second hand product, what is much better for the environment then buying new items.
I have United Wardrobe too: It’s great, because it stimulates you to sort out your clothes and sell them when you don’t want/need or fit them any more. The app is really trustful and is handy to use. Every time I’ve sold something it feels good, so I really recommend the app :-)!
