As we enter deeper into this new year, it is important to share how we want to help impact the environment. We know as a business we have plenty to work towards, for now, we want to show you how your little one can continue to wear a Pre-Loved Pouch.
To our beautiful community who may be receiving or passing on a Pre-Loved Pouch, we see the impact you're having time and time again. You are handing on our products to siblings, friends, neighbours, op shops, and so on. We, as a business, understand that quality and re-use is integral for our community and most importantly, the planet.
We want to help you build your children's sleep wardrobes so that it continues to function for what it's intended to do, wearing for sleep. We have created this guide with reuse in mind, so you can determine if your ergoPouch can be worn over and over again.
Firstly, ergoPouch's don't lose their TOG over time. Our products are made with quality materials and features such as double-stitched seams, to last over time. Reusing an ergoPouch is better for the environment and your wallet. If you've purchased a second-hand ergoPouch or gifted one, here's what to look out for to ensure your child sleeps safely and cozy in their pre-loved Pouch*
Note - don't worry if the product is faded. We use water-based dyes to avoid using harsh chemicals, and as a result, the colour may fade over time. This does not impact the functionality of the product.
*Here are the things to look out for:
Your safety guide to reusing an old ergoPouch
