Yesterday I had an opportunity to shop the store and it was fantastic! Savings can be found throughout and I was able to get some really great items.

  • Brand new ladies leggings
  • Ladies top
  • 1 pair girls winter boots
  • 1 pair boys shoes 
  • 1 boys sweater
  • 1 boys pants
  • 1 container of art supplies
  • Baby doll
  • Little people play set
  • 1 package of assorted toys
  • 1 package of Tech Decks
  • 1 Halloween skull decoration
This made for some happy kids and a happy mom, I got something for all of us and it cost a fraction of the price if I would have bought brand new.

The #IGiveaShirt Campaign:
·         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), Value Village 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 Value Village 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 bell rings. 

·         A few small decisions about what you wear can make a huge difference for the planet. By making the choice to shop thrift, people can save up to 700 gallons of water that would go into one new cotton t-shirt and 1,800 gallons of water that would go into making a pair of jeans.

·         And donating your clothes to Value Village’s nonprofit partners, instead of ditching them, can help keep hundreds of millions of tons of reusable clothing from piling up in our landfills every year.
