Clothing sharing app The Nu Wardrobe (Nuw) is rapidly expanding its services across the United Kingdom and Ireland after previously being available in only London, Dublin, and Cambridge.
The small start-up saw a rise in its number of users since its launch in January. It has attracted 4,000 users by empowering them with an easy to use platform for borrowing and swapping clothes in their area.
The Nu Wardrobe plans to finance its expansion throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland by soliciting a £115,000 investment on equity crowdfunding platform Seedrs.
Clothes swapping is now a widespread practice. It's a fun way to refresh your wardrobe and protect the environment at the same time.
You can set up a pop-up store at your house and invite your friends over the weekend.
You can also search for clothing swap groups in your area on Meetup if you don’t have friends in your size to trade clothes.
Using apps like Nuw makes the process much simpler. In exchange for a monthly membership fee starting from £/€8 per month, you can easily find people in your local area to trade clothes.
The sustainable fashion app encourages growing communities to borrow clothes to try something new and reduce the environmental impact of fashion.
It's passionate about empowering people and giving a new life to the beautiful clothes that already exist in our communities.
Used clothing and other textile wastes are piling up in landfills at an alarming rate. Now more than ever before, it's crucial to protect the environment by limiting how much waste you put out into the world.
You can effectively reduce your fashion footprint by extending the life of your clothes. Just sell them online, drop them off at a local resale shop, donate them to charity, or use clothing sharing apps like The Nu Wardrobe.
The Nu Wardrobe is available on the Apple store for iOS and on Google Play for Android devices.
