Give your unwanted clothes a loving home and make money too!

Every year, British consumers buy 2 million tonnes of clothes. 1.2 million tonnes of this goes to landfill! source

Crazy, right?!! But unfortunately this is the truth. As you all know, this can be reduced by donating unwanted clothes to charity. But if you're strapped for cash, then it's perfectly ok to make some money out of these unwanted items.

I won't drag on about ebay as if it's the latest innovation to hit the world wide web. But that is one option if you want to sell cheap items. But if you have pricier items to sell, such as designer or vintage, you probably won't expect to get yourself a good deal on ebay. It's like selling Gucci at a jumble sale. A better idea is to sell them on Asos Marketplace.

Asos marketplace is where you can sell (or buy) clothes. You simple upload a photograph of whatever it is you want to sell, write a description and name your price! Then sit back, maybe make yourself a cup of tea and your item will be viewed by fashionistas around the globe.

You don't even have to pay to list your item. Any fees are taken after you have made any money.

If you're looking to turn this into a business then, if you're lucky, Asos may let you open your own cyber boutique on the Asos Marketplace website!

So why not give it a go. It costs nothing to start!
