Kourtney Kardashian says she 'loves to donate' after sisters Khloe & Kim slammed for selling old clothes

KOURTNEY Kardashian opened up about selling and donating items from her closet, revealing that she "loves" doing it as sisters Khloe and Kim were slammed for the same thing.

The Kardashian sisters often sell their clothes online.


Kourtney, 42, re-shared a photo from an Instagram account called Kardashian Kloset.

The post urged fans to shop items the Poosh founder and sister Kim, 41, were selling.

Kourtney built upon that on her Instagram Story.

She wrote in her post: "I love how selling items from our closets extends the life of these pieces, lowering the footprint and keeps them out of landfills.

"I also love to donate and give to my friends, and save really special pieces for my daughter."

The mom of three concluded: "I spread it all out!"

Despite Kourtney making valid points about the Earth-consciousness of selling and donating clothes, she and sisters Kim and Khloehave been slammed for it in the past.

In January, the KKW beauty mogul faced backlash for selling used clothes.

Khloe also faced backlash after listing daughter True's old clothes for hundreds of dollars on the site.

A kid's pair of used pink Gucci velcro tennis shoes was added to the page for $250.

Khloe also listed kid's pair of Fendi jeans for $495.

KOSTLY KLOSET

Fans previously noted that Kim – worth an estimated $1.2billion – put hefty price tags on some of the items she was reselling.

Last month, the former Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum announced on Instagram that she was adding items to her closet.

She scrolled through several high-end goods, including a $700 robe.

Fans were shocked to see the price tags, considering many of the items are used.

On the Kardashian Kloset Instagram, many followers made their feelings known.

"Y’all have so much money. Why not donate these items ? Or the proceeds to a good cause?" one urged.

"Why is everything so expensive on here? Don’t they get half the things for free? As PR?" a second asked.

A third ranted: "Imagine getting the bulk of your clothes for free, and then reselling them when you're already ridiculously rich."

"Donate your clothes!" one remarked, while another suggested, "Maybe a once in a while donation to a women's shelter or send the proceeds wouldn't- that would be a great thing."

KONTROVERSIAL

That same month, Kylie Jenner, 24, faced backlash for placing a $65K Hermes Birkin bag on the platform.

The younger KarJenner shared her newest listings to her Instagram Story, writing "I added new items from my closet!"

Among the new additions was the Hermes Birkin 30, along with other handbags priced at $29.9K and $17.5K.

For those strapped for cash there was also a Jil Sander cluch for $1K.

Kylie described the priciest Hermes Birkin to have a "missing lock and key, minor wear at side seams and top of handles with very minor scratches on hardware" with the material listed as "alligator."

Although Birkins are coveted handbags and can fetch $25K+, fans slammed the reality star.

Many flocked to Twitter, ripping Kylie for reselling her used bags at outrageous prices.

"I love how Kylie says 'I added new items to my closet' & it’s a $65,000 bag, one wrote.

A Reddit user started a thread titled “$65K ????”

One added: "It’s an Hermès Birkin and those soar in value. But like how other people in the comments have mentioned, I don’t think any of her followers are able to afford these.

"Maybe her celeb friends, but no average person is going to be like 'ah yes, let me buy an Hermes Birkin on this beautiful Tuesday afternoon.'"
