Recycle & Swap Costumes For A Spooktacular Green Halloween

America’s #1 online kids clothing swap program, thredUp has come up with a genius idea for reusing and recycling Halloween costumes!

By using their eco-friendly swapping platform, thredUP has extended their platform to kids Halloween Costumes. I think this is a fantastic idea, as costumes can get expensive and most kids only wear them once a year. If your child doesn’t have a sibling, or if you have a boy and girl, chances are they won’t be reused! This fall, thanks to thredUp, you can recycle your kids’ outgrown costumes and get ones that fit in return!

thredUP’s Halloween Costume Swap works just like the regular service – just a little scarier!

  • Build a box of outgrown kids clothes & list it on thredUP.com. Include a costume & flag it as a “Halloween Box.”
  • When someone picks your box, send it free of charge (thredUP sends you empty flat rate boxes at registration & even schedules home pick-up!)
  • To find a costume for your child, browse boxes of kids clothes marked as “Halloween Boxes” – pick one you’d like to receive. Pay only $5 + shipping & the box is sent right to your doorstep!

Unlike traditional exchanges, thredUP does all the work for you. There’s no bartering, no bidding, no rifling through consignment racks and no trips to the post office. They facilitate swaps, manage quality control, monitor the review process and take care of all the details to ensure you get a high quality exchange!
