The cost-saving, planet-saving solution to baby clothes shopping

Toddles is the hassle-free sustainable baby clothes solution you’ve been waiting for.

Australia sends roughly 500,000 tonnes of textile waste alone to landfill every year. To put that into perspective, that’s the equivalent weight of five Sydney Harbour Bridges or three Sydney Opera Houses. Toddles is playing its part in reducing this mountain of needless waste.

Founder Lucy is passionate about saving the planet for future generations. Selling bundles of baby clothes for ages 0-3 years, Lucy wants to make it easier for busy parents to shop
sustainably for their little ones.

“We create bundles of gorgeous baby clothes. These clothes are either preloved, or brand-new end-of-season stock from well respected brands, including Bobby G Babywear and Acorn Kids. These brands are working together with us to move towards a circular economy in the baby clothes industry and it’s exciting to be partnering with such gorgeous brands.”

Toddles bundles contain around 10 items and have been carefully put together to bring you the perfect little collection of interchangeable outfits. Saving you money as well as time, most bundles are anywhere from 40-70% off RRP.

“Too often, choosing the sustainable option means spending more time and money on a
purchase. We want Toddles to be accessible to everyone. We have a range of bundles containing items from high street brands as well as higher end designer brands.”

The textile industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. Not only does it cause pollution but it also draws on vital natural resources at every point along production.

“Coming from a background in sustainability I wanted to create a brand that operated in a
circular way using up what already exists rather than creating anything new. Shopping
secondhand is one of the easiest things consumers can do to reduce their environmental
footprint. Given that babies grow so quickly it seemed an obvious solution!”

It’s not just their bundles that are sustainable either. Toddles has made sure its packaging is 100% compostable or recyclable. It donates to 1% for the Planet and all its deliveries are made using carbon neutral delivery service Sendle.

You can shop Toddles bundles online at toddles.com.au. New bundles are added each week and every one is unique. When they’re gone, they’re gone!
