12 Dec School Uniform Cost Relief For Parents
Children do not usually grow in a constant way. They usually grow in bursts. So what are parents doing with all of ‘last seasons’ school uniforms? A small amount is currently being re-used but most are being thrown out. There is no such thing as throwing them out, they must go somewhere, right? Luckily a new second-hand school uniform marketplace app can help parents save money on school uniforms.
Whilst schools are embracing recycling of waste in the schoolyard, they are still encouraging landfill unknowingly. Schools need to encourage the re-sale of school uniforms amongst their parents who are spending up to $300 on a piece of uniform for which there is no other use: blazers, ties, formal shirts, sports uniforms, all at an age when kids are growing their quickest.
With 3.9 million students attending school in Australia, and average basic uniform costs of between $250 to $500, the national cost to parents overall is enormous.
Apart from a very few local shops, or a sparse array of social media groups selling their own school uniforms, there is no central place for parents to get financial relief from the huge cost of replacing their child’s uniform every season or so.
ReHomed Clothing is a marketplace App for parents to sell and buy school uniforms. Preloaded with 4600 schools across Australia and using filter-based listings, it’s really simple to sell and buy school clothing items directly on the app.
With the end of the school year upon us it’s a perfect time for parents to sell their kids second-hand school uniforms to other parents saving them some money for next year’s school costs.
The App is available now for free download and information see www.ReHomedClothing.com
