Giving one of our Mystery Clothing Boxes for Christmas demonstrates that thoughtful giving gives-back in more ways than one.
Christmas shoppers – consider re-loving the pre-loved by making second hand your first choice of gift this Christmas.
If you don’t know already, b.kinda Clothing sells pre-loved clothing mystery boxes with 100% of the sale going to end-of-life care. The boxes cost £20.95 and are designed for people with a passion for women’s clothes, who want to avoid a hefty price-tag and protect the world from needless waste.
In the 18 months since we’ve launched, we are very proud to say that we have saved over 39,000 pieces of clothing from landfill so far. And with 100% of the money raised going towards end-of-life care it’s an ethical choice with-a-difference for a loved one this Christmas.
The b.kinda service offers the opportunity to have pre-loved clothes selected by the b.kinda team based on a profile that you create which includes the ‘age you like to dress’, clothing sizes and colour preferences. The clothes are then carefully steamed and packed up in environmentally friendly packaging and posted (for free) across the UK.
Victoria Lammie, our E-Commerce Manager at b.kinda says: “b.kinda gives everybody, no matter what their budget, a fashion fix that is both ethical and environmentally friendly. The clothes we wear have the power to drive change and at b.kinda this means more than sustainable retail therapy, it means the world to the people that one hundred percent of the profits will help. One hundred percent of the profits to go to charity. As a Christmas gift it’s a generous way to do something that’s memorable and different that avoids all the unnecessary waste that the festive season usually generates. It’s also the perfect way to find some sparkly Christmas clothes for the party season!”
Retailers across the globe are becoming aware that the fast-fashion industry is quickly going out of fashion in the light of the looming secondhand sale trend fuelled by buyers’ worries about sustainability: “Many pre-owned items have a reputation for lasting strength and durability. Hence having served their first owner well and maintained their quality, unlike many fast fashion items that wear off after their first use.” says Victoria. “We are blessed with a steady stream of donations to our charity shops and so it is a real joy to be able to increase the possibility of thrifty buyers getting their hands on our ever-changing merchandise without the environmental cost of new ethically challenging fashion playing on their conscience.”
