Buying clothes and sports equipment for your kid can be costly - they grow so fast that your closets and garage end up cluttered with old cleats, footballs and bats.
Luckily, there are 4 great ways to get back your investment for this pricey gear - and help children in need:
SHIP THEIR BAT ABROAD
Sports Gift to send-off the hockey stick or baseball
bat your child no longer uses to a disadvantaged child somewhere in the
world who will love it.
PLANT THEIR NIKES
Nike Reuse-a-Shoe recycles your child’s
old shoe soles to create lovely new playgrounds across the nation, where
they’re most needed.
REGIFT THEIR JERSEY
Your local Freecycle Network will send your child’s old jerseys or equipment
to be reused by another child - and kept out of the landfill.
GET YOUR MONEY BACK
Wallapop is a “mobile pop-up shop” that lets you sell old sports
equipment under 5 minutes. How? by connecting with your Facebook
profile, snapping a picture, and using geo-locating technology to get
items at half the price your child might need for summer soccer camp.
items sold through Wallapop have suggested prices and are easily
negotiated. Listings are free and easy to place nation-wide through the
Wallapop app, available on both iOS and Android.
