Upcycle!

Chances are, you have some clothes that you don’t use, just sitting in your closet.  There are some really good ways that you do to keep them alive.

The easiest thing you can do is take your clothes to a local thrift store. Most thrift stores accept donations on a daily basis, but you might want to call ahead, just to make sure. Also, if you have anyone that you trust with your clothes, you can always give them some hand-me-downs! I love giving my clothes to my little cousins, and they love receiving them.

If you think you can get some money for your clothes, take them to a consignment store! Just make sure they don’t have any rips or tears, and absolutely NO stains, that way you have better chances of them buying things. Another great and fun way to get some money for your clothes is to sign up for your local rummage sales. Chances are, someone is going to buy at least one thing.

When you do all of this, remember that not everyone has the same taste as you, so don’t be disappointed if no one buys anything from you.  You are unique. (:

Do you like hand-me-downs?

It’s all the little things that we can do to change the world for the better. I’ve constructed a list that you can follow to help make the world a betterr place. (:

The Little Things:

1. It isn’t that hard to make a separate container to collect your bottles and cans.

2. There are TONS of cute recycled bags you can use at the store! If you don’t use these, then you can reuse the plastic or paper bags that you collect from the grocery store.

3. I have seen lots of different kinds of reusable bottles. I’ve also seen reusable coffee mugs.  Both of which are a growing trend and inexpensive, so it’s sort of a win-win-win if you use them instead of plastic cups or bottles.

4. For my 13th birthday, my [amazing] parents bought me a green Schwinn. I named her Lucy. I love my bike! It’s stylish, classic, and great to ride! Not to mention a fun way to exercise. If you live in a place where you can get places by bike, you should try it!

5. “Save some for the fish.” My mom will tell this to my sister and I if our showers are too long. Try to cut back your showers by at least five minutes! It makes a difference!
