Celebrating Earth Day with Schoola

I'm a huge supporter of donating clothes, thrifting, and continuously cleaning out my closet. Whether I'm donating to the local Goodwill, or a friend -- it's really something I feel good doing. Did you know that American's send over 10.5 million tons of clothes to landfills each year? This is absolutely crazy and with so many ways to donate clothing, I was thrilled to discover Schoola. Schoola is an online thrift store that donates 40% of their proceeds to benefit children's education in the United States and Malala Fund internationally.

Earth Day is April 22, so what better way to celebrate than by donating to Schoola? It's seriously as easy as requesting a bag. Schoola sent me this dress (and another) to celebrate Earth Day and with it, they sent me a few donation bags. I always have a stack of clothes that I'm ready to donate, swap, or giveaway. So, I filled the bags, put them by my door, and the post man grabbed them for me. It was painless and I like painless.

Even better? You can select a school to benefit from the sale of your clothes. The primary schools I went to, weren't exactly the most advantaged and I am thrilled to be able to give back. I buy used clothes as often as I can and I would never throw out a piece of clothing, so while it might not seem like much, it's a nice way for a girl that loves clothes to help out this lovely Earth of ours!

  2. Although I doubt the service is available internationally that's such a great idea! I'm going to be moving in a few weeks and since I've known it was coming up for a while I've done some massive clean outs of my wardrobe and other things and have donated it all, but for a lot of people I'm sure the thing that puts them off is taking the time to drop bags of clothes off to the local charity shop, but if someone actually collects it from your front doorstep that would be much, much more convenient! Great idea.

    1. Actually, I do believe they do operate internationally. You should look into it. I know internationally they work with a certain charity, so I assume the donation process works there too! It really does make things more easy, so def check it out.
