Hoopla re-loved: A Place to Give Your Pre-Loved Gear a New Home

July 05, 2019

re-loved by Hoopla Kids

After months of discussion and planning, we are proud to bring you... re-loved!
- a place to give your old, pre-loved gear a new home.

Send in your old or unused ethical clothing and we'll re-sell it.

Receive store credit for sending in re-loved clothing.

Shop our re-loved collection for used ethical clothes that still have lots of love to give.

Wondering what the thinking is behind re-loved? Well...

As an ethical clothing retailer, we reckon we should take responsibility for the full lifespan of the clothes we sell at Hoopla Kids. Not only do we care about who made our clothes, but we also care about what happens to them once you’ve finished with them.

Currently the options for dealing with old clothing are limited, possibly because it's easier (and more profitable) to focus on the pretty, shiny new clothes rather than tackling the more difficult problems of waste management. The global clothing industry is full of outrageous over-consumption, and little thought is given to the consequences. It doesn't have to be like this.

re-loved is one part of our ongoing commitment to making positive, sustainable change, and helping to build a more circular economy of clothing.

We hope you like our newest Hoopla baby! It's pretty fresh. If you have any questions or suggestions, please fire them through to us at reloved@hooplakids.co.nz
