Celebrating Earth Day with Polarn O. Pyret’s Clean Out Via thredUP

Today marks the 40th celebration of Earth Day and it’s my hope that Lucia and Adrian stay interested and invested in one of the most important issues of our time. I do like to believe that our small, everyday steps will contribute to a much larger collective difference.

When it comes to clothing, we always pass on garments to cousins, friends and various organizations – and I love a great upcycle sewing project.  However, the kiddo growth-trajectory always necessitates new clothing and I’ve wanted to look into some sort of barter system for quite some time.  Polarn O. Pyret, a premium children’s wear brand from Sweden recently reached out to me in regards to their partnership with thredUP, an online consignment store.  Participating in their “Clean Out” by sending pre-owned clothes to thredUP in exchange for PO.P credits, provided the perfect family activity in preparation for Earth Day.


Our small closets are literally exploding and sadly we have a lot of clothing from quality brands that have gone unworn.  The kiddos turned out to be great sorters and bag suffers before we sent our gently worn and new clothes off to find a new home.

The process is straightforward and simple!

  • First request free thredUp bags from Polarn O. Pyret at thredup@polarnopyretusa.com or look for the big polka-dot bag in your Polarn O. Pyret order.  They will send as many bags as needed free of charge to any US domestic address.
  • Fill the bag (up to 10 pounds!) with freshly-laundered women’s and children’s, good quality, name-brand clothing.  Please check out thredUp’s standards for detailed guidelines.
  • Make sure to register your bag online! Look for the link and detailed registration info on the bag.
  • Bring your filled bag to your local UPS or leave it outside your door for USPS to pick up.  The bag’s prepaid shipping label covers all shipping costs!
  • Accepted clothing will be resold on thredUp, and customers can earn 10-40% of the resale value of accepted clothing as Polarn O. Pyret shopping credits.


I fell for Polarn O. Pyret’s signature stripes as soon as I set foot in their Tribeca store here in NYC, and I’ll never get enough of my boy in their suspenders!  The children have recently been wearing outfits from Polarn O. Pyret (pictured above) and I can’t say enough great things about their well-structured, comfortable, easy to coordinate pieces. The soft materials are designed to withstand the test of time allowing each piece to be passed down.  I’ve found the non-fussy clothing to be suitable for everyday play and school, and put together enough for special events.  Functional adjustable waistbands and generous sizing allow the clothing to last more than one season.  Many of their pieces are unisex, and I’ve found all of their garments to be incredibly practical.

I love that Polarn O. Pyret doesn’t want to “feed the throw-away culture with a $5 T-shirt” and is committed to environmental and social responsibility.  The shopping credits received back from thredUP will allow us to invest in new PO.P clothes that are designed to be worn and washed with longevity – and passed down or recycled on the second hand market.  My family is happy to be a part of this continuous cycle.
