How to Recycle Old Clothes

3 ways to clean out your closet

If you open up your closet every season wondering why you’ve kept so many clothes that you don’t even wear anymore, listen up! There are many organizations and programs you can participate in to recycle and donate old clothes instead of tossing them in the trash. Here are our top suggestions:

1. Recycle Clothes at H&M

Donate your old clothes at participating H&M locations and they’ll take care of recycling the fabric. H&M has teamed up with DoSomething.org for their Comeback Clothes program as part of an initiative to help keep clothes out of landfills. 

2. Donate to Charity

Check out your local schools, charities, and Goodwill and Salvation Army stores to see if they’ll accept clothing donations. Your old clothes will end up in good hands!

3. Resell 

If you’ve got vintage or designer items lying around that you don’t wear anymore, try reselling them through a number of different channels.

Fashion Apps: Download apps like Pose, ThredUp, Twice and The RealReal 

eBay: Create your own listing for each item that you want to sell

Consignment Store: Search for a local consignment store in your city where they’ll take care of the reselling for you (be forewarned they’ll also take a cut of your earnings)

Once you sell and make back some of your hard-earned dollars, head over to Wantering to search for what’s on sale!

Twice is a super awesome website, and honestly, it’s where a large portion of my closet is from. It’s basically the internet’s first mass thrift store. They have tons of high-end items and they offer discounts all the time. Not looking to shop? You can sell your clothes too! Shopping and selling are both super easy with Twice, and if you have any questions about either process, feel free to HMU. As an added bonus, if you sign up through a friend link, you’ll get a free $10 credit to use on your first purchase, and if you click here, you can save 50% too. Happy shopping!

These sewing box chairs are so named probably because of their wee storage capabilities. The top seat cushion is hinged to the rest of the seat to open. These guys are mid-century in style and most likely made of teak.
