Our latest podcast guest, Brittany Henley VanMatre, saw a problem and she decided to do something about it! Growing up in and working in the entertainment industry, she knew the amount of clothing and accessories that celebrities and media personalities were gifted, especially in the children's category. Unfortunately, excess clothing often ends up in landfills creating hazardous results for our planet.
Read on to see how you can WIN a $100 Spin&Give Gift Card to shop celebrity closets for fashionable kids clothing AND help the environment.
Her father, Don Henley, helped instill in her a deep appreciation for environmental sustainability And so when she saw how much excess children's clothing her longtime friend, Eva Longoria, had accumulated, she came up with a positive solution - Spin&Give!
Spin&Give offers people a way to shop celebrity closets for stylish kids’ clothing and accessories, extend their lifecycle, AND help keep them out of landfills. Shoppers can make a positive contribution to the the planet and help the non-profits that Spin&Give donates to.

I love the concept
I really like the Metallic Dreamer 21 Handbag.
I am hearing impaired and so I cant hear that
Reuse and recycling is important
Impressive! Environmentally friendly!
i shop minimally
This is such an amazing initiative, keeping clothes from the landfills while helping charities, and people in need, it's a win win, everybody wins! Love it!
I like that they are thinking of the environment and no waste.
I love people who are willing to spend the time helping others, those less fortunate. It means the world to those who are in need. Happy Holidays.
Great idea. I'm a BIG fan of reusing anything I can.
i dont shop recreationally
I would get some of the toddler clothing. Keeping things out of the landfills is important.
