Level 3 Shipping Update + Fashion Revolution Week

Level 3 Shipping Update + Fashion Revolution Week

Kia ora everyone,

This is a quick update to confirm that Hoopla Kids will begin shipping orders once NZ re-enters Alert Level 3, which is currently set for this Tuesday, 28 April.

We're looking forward to getting your fresh gear out to you!
As things open up again we expect there might be some delays with courier services being very busy, particularly for international orders.
Kirsten, Hoopla Boss Extraordinaire, has been holding the fort during Level 4, but a recent hand injury has caused challenges with order packing. So be assured -  we're working on getting your orders out as swiftly and safely as possible, and we appreciate your patience. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions or concerns about your order.

Once we enter Level 3, we'll again be operating in a highly-sanitised workroom and still keeping our physical distances at a safe level. If you live local to us in Miramar, we can leave your order out for contact-less pick up so it doesn’t need to go on the courier. Get in touch with us to arrange - stockroom@hooplakids.co.nz or txt Kirsten on 021 171 2592.

We've really appreciated your continued support of Hoopla Kids over the last five weeks. It's made a huge difference to this small kiwi business.

Our Covid-19 discount has just a few days left! Get 10% discount on all orders made during NZ's Alert Level 4 with the code ICANWAIT (pop it in the box at Checkout), plus you'll get free NZ shipping applied to your order!
*Orders will be packed and held for shipping until NZ exits Level 4 and we are able to resume safe operation, free shipping applies to NZ orders only.

Fashion Revolution Week 2020

It's Fashion Revolution Week

Sometimes we put our clothes on back-to-front, and inside-out by accident, but this week, we’re doing it on purpose as we ask, “Who made my clothes?”

As the world is turned upside down with Covid-19, it’s a good time to look at the way we do things: how we consume, what we support and what is important to us. Fashion Revolution Week helps us to ask these questions about one of the key items we spend our money on: Fashion.

At Hoopla Kids, we care deeply about both people and our planet. We don’t want our clothes to come at the cost of either of these things. That’s why we ensure that the clothes we stock are ethically made by people who are paid a living wage, and that the fabric used to make the clothing is organic, with no harmful chemicals, safeguarding the health of people and the environment. This is also why we launched our Re-Loved collection, offering another way to support the longevity of our clothing.

We've got more exciting initiatives currently under development, in the same spirit of stepping lightly on our world. We hope to launch one in particular later this year, once testing is complete. Watch this space!

You might've seen the term before, but what does it mean for shoes to be considered 'barefoot' or 'minimal'?
