So, this is not some catchy title that I made up by myself. It’s actually the slogan to this really awesome website that I ran across and heard about from Lani with AgentGenius a little over a month ago. The site is called Thredup and while it has absolutely nothing to do with real estate, it has everything to do with being green.
The concept of Thredup is that kids grow out of their clothes quickly so why not swap them? I have seen several clothing swaps around Houston but this one is for the busy parents that don’t want to spend an hour in traffic to get to one. You get to exchange clothes from awesome parents such as yourself from all around the Nation.
I have been on the site for a month or two now and the clothes you receive are the same or better than what you can get at a consignment store.
So, what’s the catch? None. You list your boxes for FREE. Someone picks the box and pays $13 for the shipping. You get credit for that swap and pick your own in a size that your child CAN wear….for $13. Instead of boring you with a long blog post on how Thredup works I put together a video below to show you. Also, if you use the link in this post or the widget on the right hand side of this page … You and I BOTH get a month of Pro for FREE. Go to the site and check it out. It is WORTH it.
So parents, be green. Swap your kids clothes and help save Millions of Tons of textiles from going to the dump every year. Save a huge amount of Carbon Emissions from clothing being shipped across the World and in the mean time save a load of $$$$!!
Without further ado, here is the video for your to learn how it works.
