Australian online fashion retailer, birdsnest has launched into the circular fashion economy with a lifetime returns guarantee and range of pre-loved styles available to purchase alongside the current season.
Birdsnest is a collection of ‘like-new’ secondhand pieces contributed by the birdsnest community of customers designed to modify shopping habits and minimise landfill.
While thrifting is not a new concept, birdsnest has differentiated its model by hosting the platform from start to finish and creating a one-stop-shop where new and secondhand items can be purchased simultaneously.
The already generous 365-day returns policy has been extended to a lifetime guarantee, simplifying the ability to rehome worn styles by listing and dispatching the pieces to their new owner.
Birdsnest founder, Jane Cay said, “Birdsnest rehatched is part of us taking responsibility for the clothing we bring into the world. Our mission is to make participating in a more circular fashion economy simple,
fun and convenient for our community as that will naturally change shopping habits and extend the life cycle of our clothes.”
The birdsnest rehatched range consists of garments in ‘very good’ to ‘excellent’ condition that have been carefully checked by the birdsnest team. Each style is discoverable on the site with quality images and details, past reviews and extensive filtering options.
Customers still have 365 days to receive a full refund on a rehatched style if it is not going to be worn and become a wardrobe favourite. Customers are encouraged to get involved and contribute once loved birdsnest items via prepaid returns postage, in return for a small credit to shop new or preloved or to donate to a woman in need.
