Used Clothes are Green

Used clothing and personal products such as toys and furniture are great "green" recyclable opportunities.

Find green business solutions
Fashion changes rapidly, and clothes often do not function for a full lifespan. Children's clothing, in particular -- since they outgrow them so rapidly.

Used clothing stores help reduce landfill debris and when used clothing items are recycled locally, they reduce transportation to foreign countries. Shipping used clothing around the world not only uses excessive high-emissions petroleum -- but the cheap inventory can devastate local economies in the receiving countries.

Your Baby's Closet is one Southern California enterprise that is making a local, recycling difference. Through their physical location and helpful online presence, they have constructed a system for families to buy and sell good used clothing for growing and changing families. Yes, even maternity clothing is time-sensitive!

Each item is inspected for approval before it's placed on our sale floor. All items are displayed in an organized fashion. This makes it easier for the shopper to find your items, meaning a bigger return.

But clothes are only half the story. What about toys and furniture?

  • Maternity Clothes
  • Baby and Kid clothes preemie to 4T.
  • A twin and triplet section!
  • Toys: blocks, rattles, dolls, cars, balls, games, puzzles, tummy time gyms, mobiles, sit and play items, stand and play items, entertainers, walkers, jumpers, crib attachments, books, battery operated toys, videos, DVDs, etc.
  • Items to help Mom: swings, bouncy chairs, high chairs, strollers, breastfeeding pillows, bottle accessories, pumps, cribs, portable cribs, changing tables, wipe warmers, bassinets, baby sleep aids, bedding, diaper pails, mattresses, monitors, diaper bags, changing pads, backpacks, slings, rockers, etc.

And Your Baby's Closet also provides space for exhibitors from the local area to show customers their products and services, and information.

Check your used clothing and product sales and shops in your area both to find and sell gently-used goods. Mother Nature will appreciate your thoughtfulness!
