Recycling Kids' Clothing Is Easy
The idea is simple: You bring a few bags of clean children's clothing, and in exchange, you get to swap with dozens of other local mothers who've brought their own kids' old clothes to share. It's just that easy.
A kids' clothing swap allows eco-friendly parents to get items that are new to their own kids while giving other children a chance to enjoy new recycled clothes, too, all while recycling and saving money.
Odds are good that there's already a swap near you. And sites like ThredUp and Check Gumdrop Swap set up virtual swaps where parents post want ads and exchange recycled clothes, all for just a small fee.
Many church groups and local mothers' groups organize swap days, too, or you can arrange informal swaps with family members or close friends. This green parenting trend is great for the planet and for wallets!
