Why do parents rent baby clothes?


  3 minute read

As a parent, the cost of raising a child can be daunting. From nappies and formula to household equipment and clothing, things can really add up. As your little one grows, fast-fashion shops may not provide the quality of items you desire. After all, you want to make sure the fabrics touching their skin are not only soft and comfortable, but well made.


That’s why more and more parents are turning to renting baby clothes as an alternative to buying brand new pieces each and every time they grow out of them. Which trust us - is a lot! In fact, baby clothing rental is set to become one of the biggest retail trends in the year to come according to Forbes magazine.


Read on to find out why Bundlee parents rent baby clothes with us, and the surprising savings they've made along the way.


Renting baby clothes is more sustainable


With babies outgrowing 7 clothing sizes in just 2 years, baby clothes really are the ultimate fast fashion. So it's no secret that baby clothing rental is more sustainable for the planet. But how does Bundlee make your baby clothes rental process as sustainable as possible?


Longer clothes lifecycle - On average, our sustainable baby clothing passes through 5 families, and we recycle or donate pieces onto charity once they reach the end of their lifecycle


Our brands - We pick brands which reflect and match our ethical and sustainable values


Cleaning process - Our eco-cleaning facility uses green cleaning methods including Ozone sanitisation, to make sure clothes are clean as can be whilst being gentle on the planet.


Caring about the planet at every stage of our rental model, means that Bundlee's model saves 86% carbon dioxide equivalent emissions and 96% of the water usage compared to buying new.


Renting their wardrobe saves you space


Baby clothes really do pile up, don't they? Whether its clothing gifts from your family, or outgrown pieces, they use up precious space in your home. That's why one of the main benefits of renting baby clothes is the ability to simply swap out clothes that no longer fit for the next size up whenever your little one is ready. So you can have peace of mind, and more room for stylish new clothes.

 Renting saves you money


Baby clothes are expensive. That's why renting your little one's clothes is a great way to get the brands you love at a fraction of the price, and you won't need to buy new when they're outgrown.


Simply pop them back to us when they're ready for the next size, and receive a brand new set of 15 pieces. That's why parents save over £300 per bundlee. Yep, really!
