5 ways to use clothes you no longer wear without throwing them away! !

Posted by 速水ゆきえ on

What do you do with clothes and accessories that you no longer wear?

When I decided to move to Okinawa, I also cleaned up my house for the first time in my life! !

But... I thought I would wear it, but when I bought it, it was unexpectedly stored in the back of the closet, and it didn't fit my body shape.

Have you ever had such an experience?

It pains me to throw away clothes and accessories that I no longer wear... In today's article, I'll introduce you to 5 ways to use them.

1. Take it to a recycle shop

Recycle shops can buy clothes and accessories in a short time on the same day.

This is recommended for people who don't like throwing things away but don't have time for flea markets and it's a bit of a hassle. It's best to check with the store and bring it with you 😊

2. put it on the flea market

Not only at the flea market held on the roadside, but now you can easily exhibit on the net. It takes a little more time than recycle shops because you have to set the price, photos, product details, etc. yourself, but you can sell at a price you are satisfied with and you can directly communicate with people who need the product, so the seller can I think it's attractive that buyers can sell and shop with peace of mind.

3. Take it to the collection box at the store

Many apparel brands such as UNIQLO, GU , MUJI, H&M, ZARA, and Yofuku-no-Aoyama are collecting clothes.

There are many apparel brands that will collect stains, stains, and even if the product is not of that brand, even if it is torn. Isn't it 🤔

Depending on the store, it seems that there are cases where you can easily point out limited campaigns where you can get discount coupons, or you can get points!

By the way, it's getting colder and colder, and I think there are more opportunities to wear down.

From October 1, 2021 (Friday) to November 30, 2021 (Tuesday), UNIQLO will offer 1,000 yen discount digital coupon for each eligible product to customers who cooperate with UNIQLO Down Recycling . It's like giving a gift!

4. Donate clothes

Depending on the local government, business operators can purchase clothes that they no longer wear and donate the sales proceeds to the local government, or make donations to NPOs to support overseas clothing support.

Second-hand DE vaccine

For second-hand DE vaccines, you just need to purchase a collection cardboard box for about 3,000 yen from an online site, fill the cardboard box with the clothes you no longer need, and send it to us. The cost of purchasing cardboard boxes will be donated to the cost of polio vaccines for children around the world, and a portion of the sales of items sorted and sold in the local area, which emphasizes local employment, will also be donated to the cost of vaccines.
