Choose used baby clothing
Secondhand baby clothes can save you money and help protect the environment from the destructive processes required to manufacture and transport new clothes.
Choosing secondhand baby clothes conserves valuable resources in a simple, affordable way. It also keeps those barely worn baby duds in circulation — keeping them out of the landfill.
Find it! Secondhand baby clothes vendors
So whether you're in need of something new for your little one, or on the prowl for a place to recycle things your child's outgrown, we've got you covered. These days there are many websites that offer a place for you to buy, sell, or trade almost anything — especially baby goods. Some, like Freecycle, even provide a place where others are offering to give away their used items for free. For a larger list of baby clothes resale websites and stores, visit Baby-Place.com
Before you buy
Some secondhand items are in good condition, while others have seen more use. Be sure to carefully examine the item before purchase. Check snaps and other fasteners. If buying online, make sure there are good quality photos available of the item.
Choosing secondhand baby clothes helps you go green because…
- No new resources are used to produce new clothes, and therefore, no additional pesticides or other chemicals are required to grow textile crops, like conventional cotton.
- Items are resold and reused, rather than ending up in a landfill.
