"Thanks to fast fashion, the average American now discards 68 pounds of clothing a year, wasting energy, water and landfill space. Find out the best ways to dispose of your old clothes without resorting to the trash." National Resources Defense Council
Women who rely on donations to build their wardrobes face an additional challenge when looking for comfortable, well-made plus size clothing. We can make a difference by donating our gently used plus size clothing close to home.
MiB has stood by the unifying principles of social and eco-responsibility and has not only donated a great amount of clothing and money to various charities over the years, but has also hosted clothing swaps for our customers and community.
We encourage you to re-home the clothing you are no longer wearing. Not only will you keep from contributing to the overflowing landfill but you'll make someone's life that much easier by letting them find the perfect blouse, skirt, or pants they're looking for. We all know that shopping is a treasure hunt, won't you take the time to contribute to someones treasure?
Listed below are some of the organizations seeking out plus size women's clothing donations. If you have a favorite organization not listed here, let us know and we'll add them to the list.
- Gently used women's professional clothing is accepted by the Women's Alliance and Dress for Success.
- ClothingDonations.org will come to your home to pick up your gently used clothing and use them to support programs that address the concerns and needs of all veterans.

"Plus-size women's clothing (size 14 and larger) is typically the most requested type of women's clothing in all categories, from business attire to maternity clothes to everyday wear. Your donation will be greatly appreciated wherever you decide to make it." from the Volunteer Guide at volunteerguide.org.
