Why use a clothing subscription?
We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of clothing. Rental schemes are one of the ways in which we are developing a circular textile economy, keeping garments in use for longer and reducing waste generated by fashion.
Choosing a subscription bundle instead of buying your maternity clothing offers you great value for money and the convenience to have what you need when you need, without worrying about what happens to the clothes afterwards. You can gently wash the garments you rent and use them as frequently as you’d like with peace of mind as minor wear and tear are included in our insurance.
Items returned to us are screened for damage, cleaned according to need (including in our eco-friendly Ozone room and steamed) and listed as available for other mamas-to-be. Our Ozone room blasts garments with ozone gas, killing bacteria and viruses whilst gently pulling any other matter from the fibres. The ozone is destroyed within the chamber before the door can be opened and the clothing retrieved. There are no chemicals involved in the process, making it suitable for sensitive skin and those with allergies.
In addition, we run our Subscription service from our own warehouse which is powered by 100% low-impact renewable energy and because we recycle so well, we are a Zero Waste company. All items ship in recycled paper packaging that is completely plastic-free, biodegradable and recyclable. You can keep this packaging to use for returns.
