Last night I attended the New York premiere of The True Cost, a new documentary that traces the human and environmental impacts of first world clothing habits:
I knew on some intellectual level that these things were happening, but seeing the specific stories and struggles of these workers and their communities strengthened my resolve to grow Moxie Jean into a company that provides an alternative to fast fashion – that empowers families who want to do the right thing with a way to do so that fits into their busy lives.
It may seem counterintuitive for an apparel company to tell you not to buy more clothing, but our mission is to empower conscious consumers, not conspicuous consumers. And of course kids keep growing out of their clothes – they can rarely make do with last year’s jeans or shoes.
So buy what you need, try to buy quality over quantity, and send in the items that survive – we sell what we can and the rest is passed on to our charity partner The Kid’s Pantry, who gives items away to families in need.
I’m tremendously proud to say that Moxie Jean is helping to bring The True Cost to Chicago on June 3rd, 2015, and you can buy tickets to see the movie and hear from the director Andrew Morgan (and myself) here. Find information on other screenings or purchase the movie here. And be sure to read the New York Times review of the film.
A lot of resources went into making every piece of clothing in the world - it takes 700 gallons of water to grow the cotton in a single t-shirt – so let’s make it last as long as we can. When you buy and sell gently used clothing at Moxie Jean, you’re not just becoming part of our community, you’re becoming part of the solution.

What would you buy if you had $100 for a spring wardrobe? Oh, the possibilities. Well, set aside a Franklin (or 10 Hamiltons or 100 Washingtons ... however you like to roll) because it can buy you quite a lot if you shop a gently used childrens consignment site like Moxie Jean. Right now, we're offering you a special deal: Spend $100 in April, get $25 to spend in May.
To give you a little inspiration, two moms - our co-founder and CEO, Sharon Schneider, and Community Director, Michelle Thompson - spilled what they would buy from the site with a cool $100 (Sharon has a 4-year old daughter and Michelle has a 5-year old son). Their colorful picks will last through spring - and far beyond.

The key to a great kiddie wardrobe is quality, not quantity. It's about choosing outfits that wear comfortably and last longer. Better yet, it's about choosing in ways that don't harm the environment. That's where organic cotton comes in.
It’s definitely pricier - a simple t-shirt purchased new can easily run $25. But is it worth the extra cost?

Any parent of 3 girls under the age of 6 (or any parent of a toddler, really) can tell you it’s definitely a challenge to get them all dressed in the morning.
Getting dressed is made a little more difficult by the fact that all 3 of my girls have sensory processing disorder (SPD), and my two younger daughters are especially affected by clothing.
For kids with sensory processing disorder, buying special clothing as well can add up. Here's how I find clothing that meets their needs and my budget.
