10 Ways To Get Free Clothes That You’ll Actually Want To Wear

Wearing clothes is a pretty important part of being human, and wearing clothes that you like plays a huge role in how you feel and is a big part of expressing who you are.

The Eco Aspect of Buying New Clothes

According to academic estimates, as much as 20% to 35% of all primary source microplastics in the marine environment are from synthetic clothing (Source). The clothes that we buy are ruining the environment at a rapidly growing pace.

10 Ways To Get Free Clothes

1. Clothing Exchanges

Consider hosting a clothing exchange with some friends or neighbors. Everyone takes the clothes they no longer wear, and everyone exchanges clothes for the items they want.

Want a clothing exchange but don’t have anyone to swap with, or you don’t want to leave your house?  Rehashclothes.com is a great place to exchange your clothes online. 

2. Swap Clothes Online

Hand-me-downs are a great way to get free clothes, especially for children. Find family members or friends with older or younger kids than yours and pass on your clothes to each other!  

3. Hand Me Downs

You may avoid Facebook to avoid your great-aunt’s conspiracy theory posts, but Facebook can be a treasure trove of all things free, including free clothes. Join a Buy Nothing Group in your area or a Sell and Swap group and see who gives away some free clothes. 

4. Look on Facebook Groups

Many people use Craigslist to post about the stuff they are giving away, including free clothes! This can be very hit or miss, so you need a bit of patience (and a good washing machine!).
