The most intense shopping weekend of the year is upon us. Not the most sustainable idea for brands, and definitely not something that benefits our environment. At the core of Elodie’s sustainability philosophy lies the concept of Buy Less, so we’ve decided not to be a part of this anymore. We want the opposite. We want high quality, long life and second-hand value to be the deciding factors when you’re making your consumer choices. We want you to upcycle Elodie products and find new uses for them once they’ve fulfilled their initial purpose. Don’t throw anything away, scroll down to find tips and links that help you in joining our mission to prolong the life of your cherished baby products.
We encourage second-hand buying and selling to slow down the pace in which we consume. Here is a list of great second-hand websites and stores where you can find vintage Elodie:
UPCYCLING – GIVE OUR PRODUCTS A SECOND LIFE
Multi-functionality is central to our design and development process. Every product should have the potential for a second life after its original purpose has been fulfilled. Here are a couple of our favourite suggestions on upcycling Elodie products:
The Changing Bag
We purposely design our changing bags to be suited for multiple situations, both aesthetically and functionally. When your little one is grown, the changing bag can be used as a gym bag, office bag or weekend bag.
The Zip&Go is our version of a vanity bag, designed to fit nappies, diapers and wet wipes. But there are hundreds of other potential uses for it when the nappy days are over. To name a few examples it easily converts into a holder of your make-up, nail polish or chargers — always ready at hand when you’re on the go. It’s a product that can last a lifetime.
