|Save money||Renting is cheaper than buying and costs around 20% of the retail price per month.|
Renting clothes helps to save resources by reducing the demand for the production of new clothes.
|Save space||Renting allows to use the wardrobe space smartly. Simply return the clothes your child has outgrown.|
Renting helps to extend the lifespan of clothes by maximising the time items are in the circulation.
*Fashion is one of the most pollutive industries in the world but your environmental impact of renting can be very powerful! Using preloved clothes doesn't only displace the CO2 emitted from harmful new clothing production but also reduce energy demand and water usage (ThreadUp Resale Report 2021).
**Extending the life of garments by even a few months can have a major impact on the volume of resource consumed and waste generated. For example, keeping clothing in use just nine extra months can reduce the items carbon footprint by 27%, water footprint by 33% and waste footprint by 22% (WRAP, Designing for Longevity).
