It all began with a $250 kid’s blazer
I was knee-deep prepping for a family photo and simply couldn’t believe the price tag of the one item I wanted my son to wear. How could a kid’s blazer -- something he would outgrow in a matter of weeks and probably only wear twice -- cost so much? Before leaving the store, I promised myself to resell the blazer after a few uses to justify the purchase.
This post-purchase guilt came from knowing my garage was already full of boxes of his outgrown clothes, many of them gifts from family and friends. And I wasn’t alone – many of my industry friends shared regret knowing kids outgrow their stylish clothes so fast, they are still practically new. They should be reused, continue to be appreciated, and most of all, kept out of landfills.
And so, Spin&Give was born. Combining a way to make stylish kids’ clothing and accessories accessible by extending their lifecycle. A fun, online shopping (and reselling) experience designed to thrill parents, make a positive contribution to the planet and help nonprofits.
Being part of Spin&Give not only gives you a chance to shop celebrity closets – you are part of a community committed to recycling clothes and sustainability.
