Did you know that the average American throws away 68 pounds of used clothing per year? You don’t have to be average anymore! There’s a new way to recycle your used clothing with DonateStuff.com. It’s a great way to Go Green, Support a Charity, Get a Tax Deduction AND join with others to help save thousands of pounds of clothing from going into our landfills.
How it Works:
Visit DonateStuff.com to request a pre-paid UPS shipping bag to send in any unwanted clothing, shoes, accessories, and linens from anywhere you live in the US, free of charge. Your requested bag(s) will be mailed to your home address within 24 hours. Fill your bags and drop them off at any UPS shipping location.
How simple is that?
Your good deed will benefit one of DonateStuff’s national charitable partners: AMVETS, Easter Seals or The Military Order of the PurpleHeart. You can select which of these charities you’d like to support. Items donated through DonateStuff.com are also tax deductible.
Each pre-paid shipping bag can hold an average of 15 pounds – that’s about 45 pieces of clothing, shoes, accessories, and other household textiles including handbags, sheets, and towels. You can request up to three bags at a time, and there is no limit to the number of requests you can make.
What’s also nice is that the pre-paid shipping bags don’t expire. You could keep a bag or two on hand to use when you need to – like when motivation hits to finally clean the worn out and outgrown summer clothes from the kids’ closets.
Take a few minutes to dig into your closets and gather clothing to recycle. I know it’s in there! Visit DonateStuff.com and order your prepaid shipping bags, fill them, and ship them out. You’ll be doing something good for yourself and others, plus helping save the environment all at the same time!
