As a parent, would you like to be eco-friendly, save money and dress your baby in organic baby clothes? Try renting with an online baby clothes rental subscription from Qookeee…
As a mother of a toddler I know all too well just how many clothes one tiny human can get through! From the hordes of clothes you buy when pregnant (which they grow out of before they’ve worn half of it) to the piles of clothes ruined by nappy explosions or food stains, not to mention the sacks full of Babygrow’s, socks and bibs which you probably won’t use again even if you do have another baby but you feel obliged to hold onto “just in case”.
With parents becoming more eco-aware as well as becoming more financially savvy and looking at ways to reduce costs, fab new business Qookeee has a fantastic service to reduce waste and save parents money.
Who is Qookeee?
Qookeee is an online subscription store for baby and toddler clothes for ages 0-3 months up to 18-24 months (with further age groups planned soon!) Items are bought brand new by Qookeee and rented to parents at a fraction of the retail price. Each item is maintained and cleaned professionally after each rental.
Sustainable organic Baby Clothing
All clothing is made from premium quality, eco-friendly material which is sourced from responsible brands. Sustainable attributes include GOTS certified organic cotton, bamboo and organic cotton, recycled fibres. GOTS is the Global Organic Textile Standard and is the highest accreditation for organic cotton with full traceability of the supply chain.
How the baby clothing rental service works;
Qookeee works in a similar way to an online retail store; you set up an account and browse items online which you then add to your cart. At the checkout, you are presented with the total monthly rental price of the items you have selected. Then, for as long as you keep those items, that amount is the monthly subscription you pay. You are not tied into a subscription and as soon as you return the clothing the subscription ends.
If, at any time, during the rental you rent new items, a new subscription is set up for the newly acquired clothes. It is that simple
You can rent anything from Baby Capsules (a selection of the most common baby items such as romper suits, sleep suits and vests) to jackets and sleeping bags.

Why rent baby clothes?
Many of us, myself included, purchase cheaper baby clothes as we know our children will grow out of them quickly or ruin them. The problem with this is that the cheaper clothes are usually made of cheap materials which are not sustainable.
Eco-Friendly, Organic Baby Clothes
As a nation we discard around a million tonnes of textiles a year, with a large amount ending up in landfill or being incinerated. There is so much waste in baby wear, as the lifespan of the clothing is very short with children growing so quickly.
The aim of Qookeee is to help transition a move from the linear to the circular, where clothing is reused, re-manufactured or donated prolonging its life and with an aim to prevent the clothing reaching landfill. Extending the life of clothing could reduce carbon, waste and water footprints by as much as 20–30% each.
The Eco Friendly Brand
Jacey is the founder of Qookeee. Having worked in the fashion industry for over 15 years with responsibility for delivering product compliance, quality and scoping out the requirements for a sustainable range for a multi channel retailer, she understands the process and what is required to make clothing sustainable. With so much waste in baby clothing due to clothes being outgrown quickly, Jacey wanted to give customers another choice in how they shop.
Not only does renting baby clothes save you money, it is also a clever way to limit waste.
