Bag, Borrow or Steal… For your ‘High Maintenance Girl Friends’ That Love to Recycle
BagBorroworSteal.com feeds women’s passion for fashion with a new alternative to buying. Bag Borrow or Steal gives women the opportunity to indulge in high-end accessories when they want, for as long as they want. Think of us as “Netflix for Handbags!” The option to borrow vs. buying prevents high-priced items from piling up in storage after they’ve served their trendy purpose, or being thrown away only to take up space in a landfill. Instead, the luxury accessories are sent back to Bag Borrow or Steal, undergo an extensive inspection and refurbishment process, and are then available for others to borrow and love. In its own unique way, this “luxury-on-loan” trend is playing a positive role in reducing the approximately 200 million tons of waste the EPA estimates that Americans produce each day.
