Helpsy and Sustainability in Reselling with Jessica Rennard

Trish: Today we’re joined by Jessica Rennard, Chief Merchandising Officer at Helpsy. At Helpsy, Jessica oversees multiple business channels to drive the greater mission of diverting clothes from landfills while being profitable. Helpsy’s mission is to keep clothes out of the trash And to create honorable work.

Doug: And so here are some facts that I believe I learned from the Helpsy website. Some of this I knew, but 85 percent of clothes end up in the trash. That’s over a hundred pounds per person per year in the U S and it occupies nearly 10 percent of our landfills. Industry research tells us that 95 percent of secondhand clothing could be reused or recycled.

Jessica, welcome to the show. You’re a perfect guest for Earth Month, Earth Week.

Jessica: Thank you. Happy Earth Day.

Doug: Thank you. Also to you. So can you give us a deeper dive into what you do at Helpsy?

Jessica: Yeah, sure. So I’ve been with Helpsy for about two and a half years, and I oversee all of our sorted product sales and revenue and kind of keep track of where all the product goes and make sure that we’re contributing to circularity and that we’re extending the life cycle of each garment to the best that we possibly can.

I’ve got about a team of 12 of us and we all come from the reselling industry in some capacity. We have a mystery wholesale box business where we do some curated wholesale that we sell to resellers and thrift stores all around the country that are typically further reselling on Poshmark, Mercari, and eBay.

Trish: Have you always been into sustainability and helping the environment or how did this come about?

Jessica: Yeah, I got my master’s in nonprofit management and my first job out of grad school was working for a local Philadelphia nonprofit where we, collected clothing donations to help women transition back into the workforce.

But what’s interesting about that is that when you’re a nonprofit and you say, hey, we take in clothing donations for this specific mission, people were donating men’s bathing suits for a women’s workforce. So we had to find a way to monetize and offset the clothing that we couldn’t use.

So my first job was running a resale store for them that helped further profit the mission. And I’ve always been in the secondary market ever since then. And I love, The idea of being the underdog and selling what other people think they can’t sell or what people deem as trash. That’s really not trash.

Doug: That’s great. And so what are some of the things that help he does to promote its overall mission?

Jessica: So we have around 2000 collection bins and around 11 States on the East Coast. So like bins that you would see in parking lots and gas stations. And we’ve got about 40 trucks on the road, seven days a week.

So we’re constantly collecting that merchandise. We bring it into our main sorting facility, which is located in New Jersey. And then from there, we further sort it. We built some pretty interesting technology about a year ago where every garment that we touch, we input the brand and the condition. And then that piece of technology tells the sorter where that goes, in our various business channels.

So we’re able to remove a lot of the human judgment and labor that comes from just the intricacies of dealing with used clothing.

Trish: That’s interesting. Why do you think an everyday person should be aware Of the impact on sustainability?

Jessica: I think as consumers, we’re pretty far removed from the whole supply chain from manufacturing to production to when it hits retail.

We purchased that garment at the checkout counter. We bring it home into our closet. We wear it once and then we’re done with it. We don’t really think about that end use. So I think it’s just important for consumers to be more conscious about it. how we’re contributing to textile waste and maybe be more of a conscious Consumer at the onset.

So when we’re, when you’re purchasing that garment, thinking about what you’re doing with it, when you’re done would be helpful.

Doug: Yeah, for sure. It was interesting to me when I learned about sustainability and sellers and how many sellers are not aware of the impact that they can have either way.

But why do you think sellers should be aware of sustainability?

Jessica: I think resellers need to realize how much of an important vehicle they are to sustainability.

And they’re really the, that middle person that can connect. from being a linear concept to it being a circularity function. And if they can just continue to move through as much inventory as they possibly can, knowing that it’s going to a consumer, that I think that’s really important.

Trish: So how does Helpsy work with thrifters and online sellers specifically?

Jessica: Yeah, so we currently sell to around 400 different thrift stores in the country. We also pick up excess from about equally the same, a few hundred. So a lot of thrift stores, whatever they, that’s coming through their front door that they can’t use, we will pick up that excess and whatever they don’t sell, we’ll pick it up.

We’ll purchase that from them as well. And then it’ll come to my side of the business, and we go through the sort and all the Zara goes into a Zara bucket. All the Forever 21 goes into a Forever 21 bucket. And then we sell that by brand to resellers. And it’s really interesting that product that someone in Georgia may not be interested in is what a reseller is really looking for in New York City.

So we’re like matchmakers.

Trish: Okay, so I just have a question on what you just said. So all the clothes that you sell to resellers has already been offered to a thrift store?

Jessica: It’s typically coming off of a thrift store floor. So we work with a lot of, large chain thrifts, but also Plato’s Closets, Uptown Cheapskates, Style Encores, and in addition to the secondhand part of our business, we partner with large brands like Rent the Runway Hilara, and we handle their returns and damages and excess.

Doug: Interesting.

Jessica: Yeah.

Doug: And I also think it’s really interesting that sellers can choose specific brands to wholesale. So can you tell us what’s the most popular brand and what’s the least popular?

Jessica: Okay. The least popular is definitely the Shein’s of the world. It’s a very difficult brand to resell, but unfortunately, it’s one of the top 10 brands that comes through our warehouse from a volume standpoint.

I would say from the desirability it really ranges from like the free people Anthro Everlane mix to the upper echelon like Nordstrom brands through Rent the Runway, we get a lot of amazing brands like Nicholas and Alexis and Mara Hoffman. So those, we’re finding more of that coming through to give our customers.

Trish: Helpsy offers data to help sellers with sourcing and pricing. Can you tell us how that works?

Jessica: The data component of what we do, we’re actually selling directly back to retailers. We’ve worked with some large brands that are interested in learning how much volume of their own brand is coming through collection bins.

So we haven’t branched off yet and started selling the data back to resellers yet, but we are giving it back to the brands. For their own research development. Interesting.

Doug: And then you’ve also got helpsysource.com. Can you tell us about that and how that works?

Jessica: Yeah, that’s our micro wholesale mystery box business. So that’s where our resellers can go on and purchase. I think the smallest box size is around 40 units and we, sell all the way up to full truckloads. We work with really small resellers that are doing this part-time through Helpsy stores, and then we also have full-time people that are buying large volumes every week.

Trish: Why do you think Earth Month, as Doug calls it, Earth Week, Earth Day is important?

Jessica: I think it’s just a great time for awareness and education just because it’s not something that textile waste I think is a great buzzword right now, but I don’t think that as consumers we’re as aware as we should, so I think it’s a great time to just make people more aware.

Doug: And so tell us where we can find out more about Helpsy.

Jessica: So helpsy.com is where you can find out more about like our collection efforts and Textile waste diversion. And then helpsysource.com is where you can try out purchasing some of our mystery boxes. And we’re pretty active on Instagram. It’s helpsysource and we’re located in New Jersey, and we love to have resellers come in and, take a tour or host an event.

So if anyone’s local, we’d love to have you out.

Doug: Okay, cool.

Trish: That’s awesome. And so I just have a couple of like questions about the way you sell it. So is it bailed? Can you buy by the bail or is it always? And is it graded, so to speak?

Jessica: So it’s by the piece in a box. It’s not bailed through our Helpsy Source business.

It’s graded in the sense that the app is pretty intelligent, our technology app. And so we only allow, around 10 percent of damages to come through the sort within a 40-piece box. And our definition of damages aligns with a reseller’s tolerance, right? So like a little nick or a little pull or something like that. But what’s been so helpful with the technology that we use is that if it’s Zara, we have less of a damage threshold than if it’s Chanel, right? If Chanel comes in and it has a hole, we’re still going to let it through. If Zara comes in and it has a hole, the app is going to say it cannot go in a reseller’s box.

Trish: Interesting. So how do you know that it has a hole? Because you said you try to take out the human…

Jessica: yeah. So removing judgment from the damage assessment is the only part really where we’re not automated yet. We don’t need that judgment, but we have tried to streamline it. So like on the screen, it’ll say, you type in the brand.

You pick the gender and then the screen will have you pick what damages so if it’s a whole, it’ll say, is it smaller than a quarter or larger than a quarter? If it’s a pull, and every time you click damage it’s grading it. So if they click two damage buttons, depending on what that brand is, it’s not going to let it through.

If they click two damage buttons, if it’s a great brand, they’re going to let it through.

Trish: And you said about a 10 percent cull rate. And so is that across the board? If somebody bought a tractor-trailer, you said a truckload it would be the same 10%. Interesting. So I’m a used clothing seller.

I have about 14, 000 items on eBay. I have bought in the past. Bales of clothing which of course has a much different call rate than what you’re talking about. It was much higher. But it’s just an interesting way to source. I do think, we’re constantly looking for new ways to source as, especially for volume resellers, I, the idea of going to a thrift store and going through all the items.

Makes my skin crawl. I can’t even because I would have a hard time getting enough that I needed because I’m volume, right? So it would take too long. So it’s a really interesting thing. And I also would just like to add that I owned a consignment store, a brick-and-mortar consignment store, and I now sell just clothing on eBay, other platforms too, but mostly eBay.

And I don’t ever think of the environment ever, and somebody who’s done what I do. I should be, I should have that be part of my overall philosophy or whatever we want to call it. And I never think about it. It’s just really interesting. Having even owned a consignment store, it was always just about getting a better product at a lower price.

Jessica: Each reseller is a really important cog in the wheel. And I know it, it helps you. We couldn’t do what we’re out to do without the reseller community and the thrift store community.

Trish: So do you think you need to educate? I guess what I’m trying to get at is I’m wondering, Do you think people like me just need to be educated that they are part of the wheel? That we are a cog?

Jessica: Yeah, I think there are different levels of it. So even for myself, when I first got into the industry, I didn’t feel super passionate about the sustainability piece and really didn’t even realize that’s what I was doing probably until I joined Helpsy. Yeah. For me, it was like, I just, it was that adrenaline rush of oh my god, this was trash for someone, and we were able to offload the whole thing and, make a couple of bucks and it’s just this great cycle. And I think that’s probably what it is for a lot of people but just taking it one step further and realizing the important part that you’re playing may even help you in an interesting way like expand your own business. Just to exercise that part of your brain that you’re doing more than just transactional.

Trish: yeah. Interesting. Is there anything else you’d like to add about Helpsy or anything you think we should know?

Jessica: I guess just one thing I didn’t touch on was how the capacity at which we work with brands and brands are now being held responsible for what they do with items that don’t sell. I think, many years ago it was like, we’ll just offload it to a jobber. We’re not going to tell anyone who the jobber is. We’re not going to say where the product is going, just get it out the warehouse. That has changed.

And years ago my phone was ringing, and it was like, Hey, I’ve got this truckload. I can’t tell you where it’s coming from. You can’t tell anyone where it’s coming from. And now I’m starting to talk directly with brands and we’re able to say, who we’re working with. How much we’re getting a month and really, I think that’s been great to see.

I think we have a long way to go, but Helpsy is definitely playing an important role, in mentoring brands on their sustainability mission.

Trish: Can you explain what a jobber is?

Jessica: Yeah, a jobber is really a middleman who takes excess merchandise. So a lot of times when you return things to, to a retail store, it’ll end up in a warehouse where it ultimately will get liquidated.

And 15 years ago, most of that was going to jobbers who were just making phone calls and brokering the product. Now it’s more of an intimate handling of the product. It’s coming to someone like Helpsy where we can then go back to the brand and say, we can tell you exactly who we sold it to. We’re willing to share our margins because we’re all for transparency. And that climate’s really changing now.

Trish: A, there is a place in Rhode Island that started in Rhode Island. I’m in Massachusetts. So place in Rhode Island that is now in Massachusetts also, which is called Ocean State Job Lot, and I’m assuming, and it is exactly, they sell, one week they’ll have one thing, next week they’ll have something else.

And I never realized, now I know that was probably started by a jobber, which I never understood what job lot meant. That’s an interesting thing. And the second thing I wanted to ask was.

There are brands that do not want their things sold on the secondary market. So what about that?

Jessica: Okay, that is the most exciting part of my job today, because if you ask a brand, why do you not want your products sold on the secondary market? The first thing they’ll say is that they don’t want it online, right?

Or they don’t want Oversaturation and prior, I don’t know how true this is, but this is how I felt prior to helping see coming into the space. There wasn’t really anyone that could help them control all of those concerns. And I think due to our transparency and our vast customer base, we’re able to go to a brand like Canada Goose and say, okay, here’s our solution for oversaturation.

We will only sell 10. to each customer in a certain zip code over a certain period of time. And we can be that funnel for you. That is like the strainer that controls the pace. Or if you don’t want it sold online, we will not sell it to any resellers. And we’ll make sure it only goes into brick-and-mortar thrift.

And if you really start to uncover, like why they say they don’t want it, they don’t want it to go to the secondary market. There are very valid reasons that now we’re able to help.

Trish: The whole thing’s interesting, really.

Jessica: It’s very fun. It’s very fun to do. It’s a huge problem. I feel like I have job security for a while.

Trish: Because it’s not going away. Yeah. And I just watched that documentary on Brandy Melville. So anybody who hasn’t watched it, it’s on HBO. I’m going to suggest that you watch it. There’s a, there’s like a dual thing happening.

One’s about Brandy Melville and the guy who runs it. And he’s a little sleazy. That is not the aspect I’m telling you guys to watch. The other aspect is about fast fashion and what’s happened, what happens to it. And especially two countries in Africa and how it’s tied. How it is, tied to their economy, but it’s also doing bad things to their economy and about how much, and it is amazing.

The photographs, I’ve never seen anything like it. I have never, and I thought it was pretty well versed in this subject over the last few years in the ocean. Oh, the beach. It’s amazing. And this is after tons of it have been sold. Between themselves and recycled and they make new things out of it and they’re using it in inside couch cushions, and it still is so much.

We really have an issue that I don’t think so. Watch this documentary and watch it. It’s really, you may get a lot out of it. You probably get a lot more just than I did out of it. Okay.

Jessica: Yeah. It’s definitely on my list. It’s something to like, just piggyback off that. I recently just volunteered in Philadelphia and brought, I don’t know, maybe 20 trash bags of clothes to hand out to the homeless. And for what we all do for a living, it was so polarizing to see people walking around without shoes on or, they don’t have the right pair of pants or shirt.

And I’m in a, I’m in a warehouse every single day where trucks are just showing up with all this excess clothing. And then there’s people that don’t have, a shirt on their back. It’s so important, what resellers are doing and how we’re all contributing to that point of circularity to watch a documentary like that and take it one step further. I think it’s just so important.

Trish: And it’s also an interesting thing because a lot of resellers, especially at the thrift store level, they get Not really me because I don’t buy this way, but they get a lot of resentment and pushback saying that they’re, taking clothes from poor people or that they’re taking resources that should go to the homeless or whatever.

And., I think once you realize how much clothing there is, that, that is a, that’s a nonsensical argument. It doesn’t even make sense. There is so much clothing that almost everybody could be a clothing reseller and it wouldn’t matter. That is that much clothing. We’re never going to run out of the product.

Jessica: One of our founders that helps, he, his name’s Alex. He always says, to that point, there is no scarcity. of excess clothing. And for some reason, there’s this mentality that there is.

Trish: And there isn’t. You’re completely right. It’s almost thick how much there is. And I don’t think most people understand.

And when we’re trying to get it to the homeless population or to the disadvantage, that’s more about Somebody doing the work, I think. I think that’s more about because somebody like Helpsy or somebody like whatever is going to give you enough clothes to do that work. Just someone needs to do the work.

Getting it from A to B. And so that opens up a lot of interesting conversations because it’s definitely not about scarcity. He’s right. Yeah.

Doug: Yeah. Wow.

Jessica: A lot to talk about.

Doug: Yeah. And so anything else to add, Jessica?

Jessica: I think that’s it.

Doug: All right. Thanks so much for joining us and enlightening us on, the great work that you’re doing there at Helpsy. And so we’ve been joined today by Jessica Renard of Helpsy and learn more at Helpsy. com.

Trish: Thanks, Jessica.

Sustainability Stats and Reselling

Doug: So Trish, we’re talking about sustainability. It’s Earth Day, Earth Week, Earth Month, all of that. And, I’ve said this before, but I had no idea the impact that online selling can have, that clothing sellers can have to sustainability and helping the environment. And then also had no idea how crazy the problem actually is at all these different levels, but let’s start small.

So in your business, your online selling, do you think about sustainability? Did you think about it before you started selling or? What?

Trish: Never. Before I started selling, I never thought about it. I think when you and I grew up, recycling wasn’t a thing. It came on later as we got older, right? And our kids have grown up with recycling their entire lives, right?

My daughter separates everything and she’ll say to me, why isn’t that in the recycling? And I’ll be like, I didn’t even know you could recycle that. I think people our age really has to make a conscious effort to think about it. I don’t think it comes naturally to us as it does to maybe people younger than us. And for me, I owned a brick-and-mortar consignment store and. I never once thought about it then either.

I should have, because it would have been a good marketing tactic but never thought about it.

Doug: And I didn’t actually even learn a ton about it until I came to List Perfectly.

Trish: Yeah, me too.

Doug: It’s very interesting. And we know some people, we have some friends like Maggie Weber, Refashionedhippie, is really into sustainability. We know some other sellers. We work with some companies. We talked to Jessica from Helpsy here in the episode, but Trish, I’ve taken the time to gather some stats from some of our platforms, from some of the marketplaces.

Trish: Oh, awesome. I’d love to know what those are. Yeah.

Doug: All right. So since it is Earth Week, Earth Month, Earth Day, people share this stuff and some of the platforms did share some stats that were interesting. Some of these I knew, but Poshmark. Poshmark says In recent years, we’ve seen a shift in shopper behavior orders for sustainable listings are up 188 percent from 2022 to 2024.

Trish: Okay. So what does that mean? What are sustainable brands? What are sustainable fabrics? Do you have any idea? See, I think that’s part of the issue. I’m not even a hundred percent sure what that means. I assume it’s talking about fabrics that are either easier to process that don’t take as many resources to process or also that have recyclable properties.

Doug: Yeah, let me break it down and see what you think because you’re going to know more about this. Orders for organic cotton listings are up 99 percent from 2022 to 2024. Searches for 100 percent cashmere are up 53. 5 percent from 2022 to 2024. And searches for 100 percent wool are up nearly 70 percent from 2022 to 2024.

Trish: So you know what’s interesting to me about this is when my mother was young, right? Wool and cashmere were something that they had a lot of. Think about it. We used to have worry about moss. People would have those closets lined in cedar and things like that.

Doug: Interesting. Okay.

Trish: Yeah. And then in the 80s and the 90s, we got away from that and we got into synthetic fiber. There you go. Now I think there is a return to that, and I think it’s twofold. One is that it’s a better-quality fabric. And I wonder if it would matter as much if it wasn’t as good quality as it is. I think when you can have a great quality fabric and it’s good for the earth, that’s a win, right?

Doug: I think we’re; awareness is up. We’re seeing a shift away from fast fashion. Especially younger, the younger generation, they do a lot of thrifting. They buy a lot of their stuff there. And then I think, the Poshmark shoppers are very like fashion savvy. And I think that’s a part of it.

Trish: And fast fashion. is such a drain on the environment. You and I spoke about this a little bit with our talk with Jess, is I just watched a documentary on Brandy Melville. It is about the store Brandy Melville and it’s on HBO right now and it has two roads of thought.

One’s really about the guy who owned Brandy Melville which isn’t anything I want to talk about but then it talks about the sustainability aspect and about how all of its fashion was really just fast fashion and how it just ends up, And most of it in Africa, just this huge garbage, on the beach, in the ocean.

And the photos that you see in this documentary are riveting, for lack of a better word. You just can’t even believe how much clothing ends up over there and what, and of course it’s too much for them to do anything with it, and fast fashion isn’t well made, so it doesn’t last long. You wash it two or three times and it doesn’t look the same.

Selling fast fashion for a used clothing reseller is not easy.

Doug: And Helpsy tells us 85 percent of clothes end up in the trash and that’s a hundred pounds per person per year in the US only, and that’s occupying nearly 10 percent of US landfills. And industry research tells us that 95 percent of secondhand clothing could be reused or recycled. And that’s just the US alone.

Trish: Yeah. And it’s interesting because I don’t know about you. I’ve been selling used clothes now for, eight years and maybe longer, and for me, I haven’t thrown a piece of clothing away. Other than maybe ripped undies or something, right? Something that’s really, yeah, but other than that, I haven’t thrown clothes away in forever.

I do one of two things with them. I bring them to the rag place. We have a rag station here. Okay. Or I dropped them off at like savers or wherever. I’ll drop them off at whoever is taking clothes at that point. Do you have you ever dropped off at a rag place?

Doug: So your rag place has like a lot of leopards, leopard print rags?

Trish: I don’t know where the rag guy goes, okay? I don’t know how the rag guy works, I don’t know, but what it is, it’s a big, one of those metal boxes. And it’s specifically for rags. And what they’ll do is they’ll use it in like fill, they’ll break it down to make new material.

They’ll also use it to make yarn. They’ll do things like that. So it’s a whole other kind of ecosystem with these clothes. And I think if we could think about that, Instead of just throwing them in the garbage. The problem is they say sometimes when you drop this stuff off at Savers, it still ends up in the rubbish.

Doug: Yeah. Yeah. We can only do so much, but good segue. Here are some tips. These are actually tips from Kidizen. Talking about recycling clothing and stuff.

Trish: Okay.

Doug: Obviously, you could give it to a friend. Maggie Weber, actually, not to bring her back up again, but she sources a lot of stuff from friends. And she’s known that she’s a seller, so she has bags of clothing on her doorstep regularly. Kidizen says, try upcycling first. Patches, dye, or scissors can breathe new life into old items. Or try repurposing them into bags, coasters, or dog toys.

Ship your items for recycling. Companies like Retold Recycling and For Days offer a convenient option, purchase a bag to send your items in for recycling and earn credit.

Trish: We’re trying, some of us try more than others, I’m sure. And there are some people who take this tremendously seriously and good for them, and I wish we all did more. But I think there’s a learning curve. And I think that, we need to explain a little bit more what I’m telling you, if you watch that documentary, you’ll, your eyes will be opened a little bit further.

Doug: Get rid of those crop tops, kids.

Trish: I’m telling you, man, that documentary is unreal.

Doug: Yeah. And just the stuff washed up on the beaches.

A lot of stuff that gets donated to Goodwill doesn’t go out on the rack at all. At some point, a lot of it does get sent to third world countries.

Trish: Absolutely. And there are places, Miami is one of them. Miami is a hub. And they will, fill up a container.

So there is a place in Massachusetts that I have tried to get into. And for the life of me, I can’t, and they would rather send the stuff overseas. Then let resellers come in and buy it. And I have tried for the last four years to get to let them let resellers come in and buy it and they are just don’t think it’s worth it.

They just would rather send it over for the tonnage. And so I think there’s some work that needs to be done on that end also.

Doug: They’re probably making a profit off it. Other tips, find local drop-off points, and search for nearby locations where you can bring your items.

Check for brand take-back programs. This is interesting.

Trish: Yeah, Lululemon has one.

Doug: Lululemon, H& M, they provide clothing recycling services. That’s good.

Trish: Lululemon takes your clothes back and then gives you a small credit, I believe, towards your next purchase.

Doug: Interesting. Interesting. But I think the point is just to realize, especially as a clothing seller, but I think as a reseller, in general, is like you, you’re given stuff a new life, but especially in the niche of clothing.

Trish: Anything that resellers sell is like saving it from the junk heap really. We could all sell clothes and nobody would ever be able to have enough. There are way too many clothes per person. We all own too many clothes. And so I think the clothes thing is not an easy situation to rectify, unfortunately.

Doug: And then again, though, it’s if you, instead of throwing something straight in the trash, if you can donate it to Goodwill or to the vets, they’ll come pick. They’ll come pick it up.

Trish: Exactly. The vets will come and pick it up. So around here, it’s Big Brother, Big Sister will pick it up. They come maybe two or three times a year. So yeah, you can absolutely have somebody, you don’t even have, they make it easy on you.

Doug: Are they actually brother and sister?

Trish: They are not.

Doug: Okay. And yeah, so think about that as least, at least the stuff gets a second chance, but you’re also helping vets and people keep their jobs and all that. But yeah, we could give you a ton of stats, but just keep in mind that on this Earth Month, Earth Week, Earth Day, if you’re a reseller, you’re helping out.

Trish: Keep it in mind and realize that you’re doing something good. And, if somebody says something to you, because we all do, especially clothing resellers, we get that we took this from the poor or we’re keeping this from the homeless population.

And as Jess and I discuss in this interview, it’s just not true. There is enough clothing that we can all be selling and having it for years to come.

Doug: Plenty of clothes for everybody and one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.

Trish: It’s absolutely true, my friend.

Doug: All right, cool. Thanks, Trish.

Trish: You’re welcome, Doug it was fun.

Doug: Yes, always fun.

Trish: Always.

Doug: Don’t throw your clothes out.

Trish: I’ll try not to.
