Geek Tip: Use Rehash to Recycle Your Clothes and Accessories

I love thrift store shopping and spring cleaning, oh! And the Internet, so I am more than stoked to have found out about Rehash. Rehash is a recycling website for clothes and accessories, which, like BookMooch, is based on the free trade of used clothes — I put up my 1997 Weezer tour T-shirt, I get your old, worn-in Levis.

This is such an awesome service — with my old clothes, I sometimes resell them (but usually get very little in return) or take them to Goodwill (feels good, though no cool new pieces of clothing in return). This is a rad new option, especially for old pieces I'm done with but want to see in a good home. I love seeing the recently rehashed items on the home page, as well as the ability to add coveted items to your profile, so you can finally get that ironic camping T-shirt out of your rotation!

I would rather throw a swap party and have my friends over for wine. I will at least know where my stuff is going, and that it will be in good hands. Plus, if I ever want to trade back, I know where to go :-P I also give my little sister my old cloths and accessories. Since she's a teenager, she gets really excited about getting my old Abercrombie, American Eagle, ZARA, and Hollister stuff from when I was in high school and college. Since I live in the city, my sister now has two closets of stuff that she can choose from when I'm not home with the fam. My family used to always send our old stuff to Bangladesh. If you know someone traveling abroad, it's great to donate old things that will be greatly appreciated by the poor in another country.

Okay, I adjust my review because they actually tested out my qa-ing and fixed all the dead links! anyway, freecycle is much more rewarding. but hey, that's just me!

Whoops. But uh as I was saying: Mistakes happen, dearie. Besides the site is beta so it's to be expected. Well I personally love the idea. :) Giving things away to Goodwill is rewarding in itself but it'd be nice to get cool stuff in return too. And as Geek said you know for sure it's going to end up in a loving home; not just rot in some sales rack or end up as car wipes or something. :(

<_< Mistakes happen dearie, and as for the site it's beta anyways so it's to be expected. I personally love the idea. :) Giving stuff away to Goodwill is rewarding in itself but it'd be nice to get a little something back for it too.

Honestly, I'd rather just freecycle. I've found some pretty good clothes and items through that as well. And it's a lot easier to get rid of stuff. On a technical aspect, the site is extremely buggy and not user friends. If I search, then click on an item in the search, I have to search again - I can't just go "back" to my search. And as stated above, a lot of links to items were dead. I'm just put off by so many people asking for monetary offers. Seems like a good idea gone useless.

Well, other than the fact that all the links to items are deaad.... I don't see how this is any different than Craig's List? It's just people selling things...
