So today I wanted to talk about a really cool website: Schoola. A friend introduced me to it, and I am in love with the idea. Basically it is a secondhand online children’s/women’s clothing store, but with a perk: for every purchase you make, they will donate money (to the actual schools who donated the clothes you are buying) to help with programs like Art, PE, etc. I love the idea of buying something while also giving back to a cause. If you don’t like the idea of buying secondhand, then this may not appeal to you, but I have been wearing secondhand clothing my whole life (I come from a big family), so it’s not a big deal to me. Plus, if you think about it, buying secondhand gives clothing a “second life” so to speak, so it is environmentally friendly as well.
I have actually purchased twice from this site, and just received my first package a few days ago. I bought a cute vintage shirt, but on my short little 5’3″ frame, it fits more like a tunic. The fabric is a bit thin, so I am waiting until this frigid Minnesota winter turns into spring so I can bust out this bad boy!
My package arrived wrapped in yellow tissue paper and fastened with a sticker.
And it also came with a decent-sized bag for used kid’s clothes.
And here is the shirt/tunic. Excuse the no makeup/bathroom selfie photo haha! It is the only mirror in my apartment.
So there you go, I hope you guys check it out! If you do, you can use my link, and, here’s the really cool part, if you sign up for a free account, you will automatically get a $15 credit, and I will get a credit as well! When I did this, I used the coupon code “hurry” to get free shipping. I am not sure if it is valid anymore, but it might be worth checking out. Otherwise, the shipping fee is pretty nominal, I think it was under $5.
*One last note: they have a lot of different kid’s stuff, but I actually found my shirt/tunic under the “high schoola girls – 13+” category, they actually have a lot of women’s stuff there as well.
Hope you guys check it out, and happy shopping! Let me know in the comments what is your favorite way to shop eco-friendly.
