RESPONSIBLY CLEANSING YOUR WARDROBE

Its that time of year again when i need to sort out the wardrobes and ive been pondering on how can i be a little bit more responsible with the way i dispose of clothes and shoes that are no longer wanted.

Here are a few tips as im trying not to just fill a rubbish bag full and leave it on the side of the road to be taken off to fill a landfill !

1. BUY LESS CLOTHES.

I can't stress this enough. It's such a simple concept, but makes such a difference. Buying less frequently and choosing well-made pieces is the absolute best way to be responsible with your closet. 

 

2. GIVE OR SELL YOUR USED CLOTHES TO FRIENDS.

This method seems to be gaining more and more popularity. I love seeing someone I know giving new life to an item that no longer suits me. There's a few different ways to go about this:

  • Organize a clothing swap with your friends. Ask everyone to bring some items they're getting rid of.
  • Host a "pop up boutique" at your house. I did this a couple years ago and loved it! I set out all of my used items had some refreshments available while friends perused the selection. 
  • Surprise a friend with a piece of yours that they love. This has brought me so much joy recently! Instead of only giving away items that are totally tattered, consider giving a piece that you like to someone who will love it. 

 

3. SELL YOUR CLOTHES ONLINE. 

I've had a lot of success with this recently. It's especially worthwhile for items that are in great condition and from popular brands.Epsecailly items like Ball dresses that have only been worn once! Make sure you take great photos , ith good lighting. This makes a huge difference.

 

4. DONATE TO YOUR LOCAL SHELTER.

 It just takes a quick Google search to find homeless shelters, foster homes, etc. in your own city!I love the feeling of giving back .

 

It may take a little more effort to pursue these options, but it's so worth it. You can earn money, help someone in need, swap for a new item, or at least rest knowing your clothes aren't dangerously decomposing somewhere!
