#IGiveASh!rt ♥


I'm excited to be partnering with Savers today as a part of the #IGiveAShirt Campaign and National Thrift Shop Day (August 17th)! Savers is challenging people to show they Give a Sh!rt about their clothing footprint by making their next new t-shirt a thrifted one, and donating items they no longer need rather than throwing them away. It's amazing how much purchasing just one thifted shirt instead of buying a new one can impact our environment and local community!


Each year, people consume over 80 billion pieces of clothing, causing the clothing industry to become one of the world’s biggest polluters. This back-to-school shopping season (the second-busiest shopping period behind the December holidays), Savers is challenging people to come together to save 700 million gallons of water through one simple act: replacing one new t-shirt purchase with a thrifted one. If Savers gets 1 million people to choose a thrifted t-shirt in place of a new one, it’ll be the equivalent of saving over 1,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools full of water, before the first school bell rings.






As a fashion blogger and wardrobe stylist, I often visit Savers to find unique pieces and also to draw inspiration for new ways to wear things. Many times the items I find at Savers are gently worn with little-to-no wear or even better, brand new! I also love to find vintage pieces that are one-of a-kind and super unique for photo shoots or my own personal wardrobe. Not only does shopping for these pieces make a positive impact on the environment, but donating your clothes to Savers’ nonprofit partners instead of tossing them out, can help keep hundreds of millions of tons of reusable clothing from piling up in our landfills every year. My personal styling clients know from working with me that making a donation of the pieces we eliminate from their closets is not only a major step in the organizational process and re-building of their personal wardrobe, but it makes it much easier to part with items that aren't being worn when they will be donated at Savers for another women to wear and not thrown in the trash polluting our community. It's a win-win situation by donating and shopping thrift!
