Earth Day with Savers

Happy Earth Day! This year I’m partnering with Savers to talk about thrifting, one of the most fun ways to go green! Savers keeps 650 million pounds of reusable goods out of landfills each year, making them one of the largest textile recyclers in the world. When you donate and shop at thrift stores, you are helping reduce the amount of waste and not contributing to the impact of new product production.

Armed with a $100 gift certificate to Savers, I was challenged to see just how much I could find to spruce up my wardrobe. Talk about a shopping spree! From one thrift store outing I was able to put together 3 entire looks, including shoes (but minus some accessories).

Look 1

Thrifted: Coach loafers, floral jumper, striped tank top

Now let’s talk about just how much $100 can buy you at the thrift store. When shopping most retail, I would have to choose between a single dress or pair of shoes, but at Savers I was able to get a whole new-to-me summer wardrobe. We’re talking:

*5 dresses
*7 shirts
*1 scarf
*4 pairs of shoes
*4 vintage cocktail glasses
*1 vintage coffee mug

Wuuuut?!

Earth Day at Savers

April is Earth Month, and it’s the perfect time to do some spring cleaning! Donate all the stuff that you no longer wear or use, and know that you are keeping those things out of landfills. In addition, each of your donations contributes to Savers partnerships with a non-profit in your community. Go ahead and reward yourself with some shopping while you’re there ;)

    This. Is. INSANE. I nearly gasped out loud over seein gyou got a J Crew dress. And I can’t even put into words how much I love those first two pairs of shoes. I usually steer clear of savers because they’re one of the pricier thrift stores by me, but I’m thinkin’ that needs to change. And that statistic of the landfills is mind boggling- it makes me a little prouder to be an avid thrifter :)
