Earth Day is in April–why are we talking about it now? If you shop and consign with us you will want to bring in your items to sell NOW (in January/February) to build up your consignment account balance for the Earth Day Double (see below)!
Earth Day (April 22) was first celebrated in 1970, to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Earth Day is a big deal to us because Once ‘n Again is all about recycling every single day. We focus on fashion a lot, because just like you, we love fashion trends and styles! And we love celebrating our earth, and that’s why we also talk about the ways you can recycle your gently used fashion through our consignment services.
On Earth Day 2021 (Thursday April 22nd-Friday April 23rd), we have a way for you to get even more from your recycling efforts- Double your account balance! If you shop and consign with us, this day is for you. Stop by and see us on Earth Day or the day after, which is April 22-23, and we will double your consignment account balance onto a gift card to be used in the store! The limit is 100 total on a gift card, we will add a maximum of 50 to a maximum of 50 from your consignment account. If you aren’t a frequent shopper- our gift cards make great presents for your thrifty fashionista friends. We limit it to 2 gift cards per person/consignment account and this offer has no cash value. Gift cards purchased in Fairbury can only be used in Fairbury and gift cards purchased in Pontiac can only be used in Pontiac. Gift cards can be used in the online store(s)–Fairbury gift cards can be used in the Fairbury Online Store & Pontiac in the Pontiac Online Store.
By consigning and shopping with us, you’re really doubling your recycling efforts: By consigning, you’re stopping your clothes from clogging a landfill. And by shopping with us, you’re purchasing gently used items from a (local) consignor, saving money, and also stopping those clothes from getting tossed out. It’s a win-win for the earth, and that’s why we’re making it a win-win for you!
Have you wondered what we do to keep your clothes from being tossed in a landfill? If they do not sell at Once ‘n Again then we send them to Frugality NFP. If they do not sell there, we send them to a recycling company or another used goods store. They sell them to rag companies, or companies that grind up vinyl for other uses, or possibly send them overseas.
