Bronxville, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/10/2014 -- Offering a phenomenal three for one advantage for parents who want to recoup some of the money they’ve spent on their children’s clothing, toys and bevy of equipment necessary to bring up a child ages newborn to twelve years-old, Be Green Kids Consignments, Inc. announces their latest sale to willing consignors and buyers alike. Poised to turn outgrown items into cash, tax receipts for charity donations and a painless way to go green, the Be Green Spring 2014 Westchester Event will be held on April 10th -12th in Purchase, New York. Doubling its size and taking over a local gymnasium at the Purchase College Athletics Facility the event proves that recycling via parent-to-parent sales not only eases the load on local landfills, it gives families a sense of accomplishment on what the company’s founders call the “Green Scale.”
Meredith Brown, President of Be Green Kids Consignments, Inc. said of the event, “It doesn't matter if you are light green or dark green, meaning you recycle a little or a lot, you can positively benefit the environment by making a few lifestyle changes. By participating in our sale as a consignor parents make up to 60% of the asking price of their items and if they volunteer at the event, they can make up to 75%. Possibly the best news is, at the end of the event they can choose to donate their remaining items to the Sharing Shelf charity in Port Chester which helps the Family Services of Westchester. It’s a win/win.”
To make use of the 150 available consignor’s slots parents need only to sign a consignor agreement found on the Be Green website, register with an $11 fee that will be deducted from their proceeds, compile a minimum of $100 worth of gently-used items and set their pricing. From there Be Green consignors log into their account on the company’s website and print tags with the provided bar codes that will be used to tally all items to the consigners account when a sale is made. Consignors then hang clothing on wire hangers, package and prepare toys and equipment and schedule a drop time. Be Green Kids Consignments, Inc. does the rest. After the discount event consignors can either pick up or donate unsold items, check the online inventory list to see what was sold, and wait for their proceeds check which will be mailed within one month of the sale.
Brown adds, “To be honest we can’t think of a better way to get the benefit of clean closets, recouped money, tax receipts for donations, and help environment. We are excited that we finally have a space that meets the demand of the event. The popularity of the sales in the Southeast and West Coast is astounding and now it’s time to introduce this concept to the Northeast.”
