Babies wear their clothes for such a short amount of time. In fact, they outgrow 7 clothing sizes in just 2 years. And what do we do with the outgrown clothes? We either keep them tucked away in a dark corner of the loft, we (eventually) take them to a charity shop or we wait for our friends to have a baby and we pass them on. It’s not ideal, is it?
When you sit down and work out how much you spend on these very short-lived clothes, it is eye-watering. So, this is where renting comes in to help! But the benefits of renting baby clothes go way beyond saving money!
The benefits of renting your baby's clothes
You can save HOW MUCH?
The brands that we partner with at Bundlee produce high-quality and sustainable clothing, which generally have a high price tag. By renting, you get access to these premium options for a fraction of the price.
And the best thing is, when you rent with Bundlee, each piece of clothing costs just £2.60 per month, saving you over 70% compared to buying new!
As a mum, we crave anything that helps us to reduce the mental list of things that we have to do. It’s like having all the tabs open on your laptop, and they never seem to close.
Ordering your little one’s clothes all in one go, and simply swapping when they outgrow them, saves so much brain power. It combines all those little jobs into a super simple task that can easily and quickly be ticked off your list. Rent | Wear | Return | Repeat.
We are protecting the planet for their future
The reasons above are plentiful. But, you can also add to this the fact that renting is great for the planet. Our planet that our babies are growing up in!
When it comes to baby clothes waste, the statistics are concerning. A significant amount of textiles end up in landfills each year, and according to Hubbub parents in the UK are stashing an estimated 183 million items of baby clothing in their homes.
As all of our rented clothing at Bundlee has to meet our values of ethicality and sustainability - as well as being made with high quality, sustainable materials - this allows us to rent out the pieces to families for longer, extending their life cycle.
Renting with Bundlee
Bundlee is an award winning baby clothes rental service. You can handpick 15 pieces of your choice from our range of premium brands. We have something for everyone, so there is no need to go to multiple shops - your little one’s wardrobe can land on your doorstep with minimal effort on your part!
When your little one has had a growth spurt and is due to grow into the next size, you can easily send the clothes back and choose more pieces in the next size up.
And sending the clothes back is really quick and easy! Simply put the clothes in the reusable bag that they arrive in and attach the pre-paid label. You can either take it to the post office, or have Royal Mail collect it from your house or work. Simples.
Come on, I know exactly what you are thinking! How clean are rented baby clothes? And what about stains? Bundlee have the most amazing professional cleaners in an eco-cleaning facility, who can get out the most stubborn of stains. They can fix loose threads, sew together burst seams, and sanitise the clothes using ozone sanitation, so that each piece of clothing arrives to you cleaner than you would find in any shop.
The reasons to rent make so much sense. Personally, I can’t see any reason not to!
