Consigning used clothes can be a pain in the neck, schlepping or waiting months for an in-store appointment to drop off your clothes. It’s frustrating and counter-productive. Instead of waiting, people often end up donating the clothes just to get the clutter out of the house. 

Of course, donating is good, but according to the Environmental Protection Agency, 85% of donated clothes end up in a landfill. Knowing this, people feel discouraged instead of proud.


Three great options to sell your clothes clutter, easier and faster:

Since 2009, Eileen Fisher’s Renew Program has taken back over 1M garments from their customers. The garments are cleaned, mended, re-sewn, felted, over-dyed and re-sold. Their “Tiny Factory” re-purposes stained clothes into new clothes, art pieces, and even furniture. Drop off your clothes at stores or mail them in to get $5 per garment rewards card.


The world’s largest online marketplace buys and sells women and kids secondhand clothes and accessories.

You can choose a “payout” to yourself or donate the cash you earn to their Charity Partners (Help Mother Out, Girls Inc., Wardrobe for Opportunities, Big Brother Big Sister, Feeding America), and get a tax receipt. In 2018, ThreadUP donated nearly $80,000 to charity!

Order a shipping kit; they pay for USPS or Fedex shipping! Questions 

(Please encourage ThredUP to initiate a program for men’s clothes here. Guys need help getting rid of their clutter, too!)
