For Frugal Fashion, Swapping Smartly
For the most stylish sustainable shoppers, revamping your wardrobe, redecorating your home, or finding that perfect funky accessory just got easier. Two new swap sites just launched, Ecobees and Bigwardrobe.Both are centered around online reuse and recycle and let users browse thousands of others' unwanted items in hopes of finding that personal treasure amid someone else’s trash. Plus, you get the satisfaction of knowing that your savvy steal means that the fuel and supplies needed to make new stuff got saved.
Ecobees connects members around the world and allows them to create smaller communities by specifying which items they’d be willing to pick up within a certain distance. Users can also post requests for specific items.
