Your help needed for new social initiative

Nov 21st, 2017 | By | Category: Radio News


Wellington parents are being asked to support a new baby clothes rental delivery service by subscribing to the venture.

Gurgl is a new social enterprise trying to end textile waste, and provide an elegant solution to the stresses of shopping with an infant.

The service has collected baby clothes through donation bins at the Wellington City Library, community centres and even by posting requests on Facebook groups.

Co-founder Jess Halley says Gurgl has had a great response, and even received baby clothes that have never been worn.

Gurgl has just a week left to raise $5,000 on PledgeMe to meet their target, and prove there is a demand for a service like this.

Jess Halley says she wants to prove there is a model for sustainable consumption, instead of adding waste to landfill and increasing the carbon footprint.
