Did you know that donating a bag of clothes has the potential to offset 5,800 gallons of water by reusing rather than producing new?

There's a brilliant organization called Schoola that makes your donation easy AND powerful.

Schoola #PassTheBag

I literally just cleaned out my son's closet the other day and there were still clothes with tags on them. There were sweaters and button downs in practically new condition (because obviously mom was the only one who thought they were a good idea).

Schoola: #PassTheBag

Here's what you can do:

  • Request a donation bag at www.schoola.com/rbt
  • Fill it with clothes in good condition. Send it back (the postage is on them!) Could it be any easier to consign your old clothes?
  • Shop Schoola! You can snag a $15 credit when you sign up for Schoola!

I've requested my bag. Will you? #PassTheBag
