Let’s be real. We live in a society where consumption is the culture. We all buy things, and rightfully so, because we need them, but what if we started to put just as much thought into the end of that product’s lifespan as we do the beginning.
Styles change and trends move fast. So what do you do with your clothes when you don’t want them anymore? After swapping or selling your unwanted garments, consider donating them! Read on to learn where you can donate your unwanted clothing in Philadelphia.
Always shop smart and for the long haul, invest in clothing that lasts! We understand some of those buys can be unavoidable, that’s why it’s important to think about where you can donate! If not, why not turn those old t-shirts into rags for cleaning? Or if that clothing is 100% cotton, compost it!
