Back when my kids were outgrowing their outfits every three months, it pained me to have to restock their wardrobe continually. It wasn’t just the cost, it was the time it took to select each item. That’s why I’m intrigued by the new easier-swap site thredUP kids.
In just a few minutes, you can pick out a box of gently-worn clothing that will fit your child, pay a few bucks to have the box shipped to you, and voila: Right-sized outfits that my kids can outgrow again.
Of course, if your babes can only wear organic cotton onesies hand-knit on a Peruvian loom, then you probably know that a swap site isn’t going to work for you. But for the rest of us? thredUP kids makes it pretty easy to reduce, reuse and recycle kids’ clothes, and restock your kids’ wardrobe for a little more than the cost of a single outfit.
That’s the kind of eco message I like to hear. -Christina
