70% of clothes in UK citizens wardrobes are left unused and tonnes of recyclable clothes waste ends up in landfills each year. As babies and children grow, their clothes need to be replaced at a much more rapid rate in comparison to adults which can become expensive. Many new parents have an issue with second hand clothing as they want everything new for their bundle of joy.
Bundles & Sow is a service where parents can send a box of their unused clothing to be sorted and up-cycled into baby clothing, which is then sent back to them as though they are ordering brand new clothes.
This tackles the issue clothes waste in adults, while providing a cheaper alternative to brand new ethical clothing as well as offering clothing made with love and sentiment for their children.
