SuperLooper - The online preloved baby clothing rental library

Postby SuperLooper » Sun Nov 15, 2020 9:25 am

Good Morning All!  
 
My name is Jenny Barrett and I’d like to tell you about SuperLooper, the online pre-loved baby clothing rental library.

As we all know only too well, babies grow out of their clothes so quickly, often after wearing them just a few times.  It can be quite stressful to see lovely out-grown things piling up, especially if you don't have the time either to Ebay or to think about where to take them when you need to do a bit of a Marie Kondo!   

 
Also, in these times when we need to protect our planet, it’s such a waste!  There’s reported to be 183 MILLION items of unused baby clothes stored in UK cupboards alone - that's 250 items for each newborn every year.  If all of those babies used at least 1 pre-loved baby grow, we could save tonnes of carbon and loads of water - shocking isn’t it?

Welcome to SuperLooper - the first online library for renting lightly-worn baby clothes age 0-2 years.  We’re a not-for-profit, driven by the desire to help parents change the way they shop and empower them to do something that makes a positive impact on the climate.  Why not come and join our blossoming community of parents who want to dress their baby in great clothes and do their bit by curbing their over-consuming habit and reducing some of the waste that happens when we have babies? 

As well as renting gorgeous clothes for just as long as you need them, you can also clear out your outgrown things by sending them to us so they can be Loved & Looped again.   We’ve just launched in Brighton with a library-full of lovely clothes given by parents and fantastic brands like Little Green Radicals who all want to keep their clothes in circulation.  We feel that London is the natural next place to open a SuperLoop and in what more fitting area than Nappy Valley!  If you’d like to hear more about renting or sharing clothes, or have any ideas to help us develop SuperLooper please comment here and find me on Instagram or Facebook @superlooperlife.
 
Have a great week 🌺

Thank you.  If it's not for profit where do the profits go please?

Hi there Gemima

Thank you for your question.  What I mean by 'not for profit' is that any profit we eventually make will be put straight back into the business and will hopefully in time be able to pay people to work for us.  So far SuperLooper has been created by the team working on a voluntary basis.  I've put a fair bit of money in to pay for setting-up costs and I received a small grant from UnLtd - a great organisation who give seed money to people setting up social enterprises.  My team and I are driven not by money, but by the desire and hope of helping to change the way people shop and making it easy to recycle clothing that only gets used for such a short time.  This way we'll reduce a lot of the waste that happens when we have babies.  As well as renting lovely clothes, parent can clear out their outgrown clothing to be shared by other parents.  We're all in this together and all working towards looking after our planet.  I would love some of you Clapham Parents to sign up and start renting from our online library - we launched in Brighton in October and are now ready to serve other areas.  Do get in touch and find out more by contacting me via the website SuperLooperLife :D

Thank you.  That was a bit of a naive remark from me!  Good Luck!
