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.

Charity is so important! It's so wonderful what she does.
I love that it help charities
Love how they are looking out for the environment.
Spin &Give is really awsome as it gives back in so many ways saves environment .I love Britney thoughtfulness.
I would buy the life like tiger toy and then would buy some of the baby shoes as a gift for a family member
I love that it keeps clothing from the landfills and helps charities. I know exactly what is meant about big corporations and donations-exactly why I don?t donate to goodwill bc the heads of the company makes tons of money from what is donated when people should be helped more. I will definitely look up this company
I don't have children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews, so there really isn't something I would buy. I would donate the card to someone who's having a hard time and could use the help buying things for their children.
I think it is important to shop with the environment in mind because the problems are already apparent with so much now. Too much throw away packaging, too much plastic, it all adds up to one huge problem and we need to fix that before it isn't fixable.
Wonderful and informative episode.
I like shopping with the environment in mind because it makes me feel like I am making a good choice for me and helping the planet and brands that care about being sustainable.
I found it more interesting than I thought I would. I feel that I learned about new things.
