Excuse me while i rant.🙈
there’s an ad campaign on @instagram right now that’s irking me.😡
a “specific” laundry brand is saying their detergent will make your/kids clothes last longer by using it. hence, #handmedowns
they go so far as to hashtag #sustainability.🙄 #fabricsofteners add a slimy layer of multiple #chemicals (look them up on @environmentalworkinggroup ) to clothes.
you know what you’re not told? these chemicals contribute to #asthma, irritate the skin, and support the development of #antibiotic resistant superbugs. and how about dumping these toxins into our water supply, producing xenostrogenic water? #notsustainable 😓
see these heart pyjamas? that’s my eldest 11+ yrs ago. that pyjama is still in one piece.👊🏼 it’s been worn by more than half a dozen kids. know what else? no chemicals were used in its washing.
What's the oldest piece of clothing you own? aside from the fact that this outfit is over 3 years old and was forde's, can you believe that this crocheted blanket was dan’s when he was an infant? i love that we’ve been able to cover all our babies with it 37 years later! it shows that if you take care of things, they last so much longer and bring back amazing memories (sometimes even through generations!) using @downy fabric conditioner helps extend the life of clothes and keeps them away from landfills for as long as possible. after hosting our first #handmedowny swap party, we now decided to make it our family tradition to hand down the clothes our kids has outgrown for other families to enjoy.

when he gives you the shirt off his back... literally! these t-shirts are destined to be loved by another - yep, we're ready to hand down reid's size "s" clothing. i've been collecting his clothes and putting them aside for our next #handmedowny kids’ clothing swap party. of course, they're in great shape because i always use @downy fabric conditioner. we use it in the wash after our detergent and it helps clothes last longer. i'm happy that i can swap clothes in great condition to help a fellow mama save money - and help keep those clothes our of landfills. did you know 10.5 million tonnes of clothing is sent to landfills in north america each year? i guess the only question is - who's coming to my next swap party?
Let’s play a game of “guess which hand-me-down shirt belongs to who?” no, but seriously, one of these shirts is 5 years old....5! and @downy has had a big hand in helping make their clothes last as long as possible. this way all my babies can enjoy new clothes, we save $ and we help the environment by keeping clothes from ending up in landfills too soon! #ad#sustainability#handmedowny .
how much wear do you get out of your kids’ clothes?

**giveaway** now it’s your turn!!! we’ve been teasing this for a couple weeks now!
with 6 kids between two of us, hand me downs are a way of life. our kids are extremely active, so by using downy fabric conditioner in the wash, their clothes last longer – our little secret (or not-so-secret now). use it after your detergent, and clothes can be worn, re-worn and handed down – not worn out and thrown out too soon. we had so much fun hosting and participating in our #handmedowny swap party a couple weeks ago – and we all managed to leave with a bin of new pieces for our b***s as we transition into a new season! and we want you to do the same.

As moms we know it’s our responsibility to raise future generation. it’s important for me to teach my boys that it’s their responsibility to make positive sustainable impact and take care of our planet. did you know that in north america alone, almost 10 million tonnes of textiles end up in landfills each year? by using @downy fabric conditioner together with tide, i make my kids clothing look newer 50% longer. it means that when my kids outgrow their clothes, i can swap them with another family, and keep them away from landfills longer. to get $2 off a bottle of downy, check my link in bio. also, make sure to check out my youtube video to learn more about hosting your own #handmedowny kids’ clothing swap party. #partner#sustainability
Contemplating on becoming a nudist. just joking! confession: i scream like a little girl in a candy store when all the laundry is washed, folded and put away.
i don’t know about you but my boys are pretty rough with their clothes. i love knowing that my sister’s kids get to enjoy and create memories in these exact same clothes. @downy fabric conditioner helps clothes last longer so they can be handed down instead of thrown out. .

The most common question i get about henrik is “where did you buy his...” and every time i have to say the same thing: “it’s a hand me down from magnus, or johannes”. because the truth is 98% of his clothes are all from years past and multiple loves. as a mom, i care about value and sustainability, that’s why we use @downy to keep their clothes in good condition. it helps keep away fade and fuzz so the clothes still look great as they get passed down. it helps us save $ while benefiting the planet by helping to keep clothes from ending up in landfills. so, if you’re looking for a tip - here it is, wash clothes in cold water with your favourite detergent, then use downy fabric conditioner in-wash. make sure to store your clothes in an air tight container between kids and then throw a #handmedowny clothing swap party! #sustainability#ad .
have you ever thrown a swap party?

Our hand-me-downy party was a success and we scored some great stuff for the kids!!! 😃 using tide and downy together keeps clothes looking newer 50% longer which will help me get even more life out of this new wardrobe! 😍 @downy@peersway #handmedowny#peerdowny#ad
💥💥💥giveaway💥💥💥 did you see my recent #handmedowny clothing swap party youtube video (link in my stories)? i partnered with @downy fabric conditioner and got together with my girlfriends to swap clothes that our kids had outgrown! at the party, we all scored some amazing new-to-us clothes and then anything left over was donated to my church’s mission trip to honduras!
i’ve always used fabric conditioner because my mom used it. but i didn’t realize that when you use @downy , you can help your clothes last longer. that means they stay in great condition to be worn and re-worn, then handed down. not worn out and thrown out too soon.
as a mom, i care about value for our family budget and sustainability. it feels great saving money and helping the environment with hand-me-downs!
now it’s your turn! i am giving away two (2) #handmedowny swap kits (valued at $150 each) for other moms to host their own clothing swaps. to enter:
