Sustainability is and will remain a hot topic. Everyone tries to contribute to a better climate in his or her own way. There are therefore many ways to minimize your impact on the environment. We often think that our contribution has little or no impact, but it's the little things that make the difference. By making conscious and green choices in everyday life, you can quickly limit your impact on the environment. In this guide you will find useful tips to give your layette a second life. By renting, reusing or borrowing items, you extend the lifespan of products and easily reduce your ecological footprint.
Buying and selling online
Whether it's furniture, clothes or other trinkets, buying and selling stuff online is more popular than ever. We all know the well-known platforms Marktplaats and Vinted. A lot of baby equipment is only used for a short period of time, so they can often last a round or two or three. Think, for example, of a maxi-cosi, baby bath or baby clothes that have hardly been worn. By giving baby stuff a second life, you not only save a nice pocket money, but you also limit the impact on the environment: win-win!
King's Day is approaching and this year we can finally roam the flea markets en masse again. The perfect time to score fun (baby) stuff for next to nothing. A tip for the treasure hunters among us: make sure you're there on time. The morning has gold in its mouth, certainly applies to the flea markets that take place on King's Day. Oh yes, take enough cash with you, because you can't use a debit card at most of the stalls.
For the good cause
Every year, about 19,000 babies are born in families living below the poverty line. Do you still have baby stuff in the attic, but don't have time to sell it (online) or would you like to help others? Donate them to charity and support families in desperate need. Think of cots, prams, clothing, but also toys, bedding, hot water bottles and hydrophilic cloths. A number of great initiatives to donate items to are Stichting Babyspullen , an AZC near you or the Toy Bank.
Via Tiny Library you can easily rent the most beautiful and finest baby products of the moment. By renting products instead of buying, we save on CO2 emissions. Together we create a better world for your baby.
