A Melbourne mum is on a mission to help parents reduce financial pressures and combat textile waste in Australia.
Have you ever thought about the sheer volume of clothes, toys, accessories and equipment your child has received since birth? It’s probably a lot. Did you know that a whopping 85% of the clothing we buy ends up in landfill? That's waste at its best!
With 75% of Australians admitting to throwing out clothing in the past year, textile waste has become an ongoing, vicious cycle. We buy new, wear it a couple of times and that's it - in the bin it goes.
This cycle of waste is only exacerbated with children's clothing. Children grow out of clothing so quickly that we end up with a huge amount of wasted clothing they may have only worn once for a few hours.
This incredible amount of textile waste doesn't have to be a way of life. There are easy ways to be an environmentally sustainable consumer by purchasing and selling quality, pre-loved baby, kids and maternity clothes and baby accessories.
As a marketplace specifically for young families, Jumping Jack helps parents buy affordable and great quality pre-owned clothes, while reducing pressure on landfill, making the world a better place for the next generation.
Jumping Jack was created by Melbourne mum of two, Sarah, who wanted to not only provide parents with an easier way to trade with each other online and reduce financial pressures by getting money back for all the items they’ve bought for their kids over the years, but also help them do their bit for the environment.
Sarah’s vision is to challenge the way things are done making it easier for parents to buy and sell pre-owned clothing online, without many of the frustrations and hassles they currently experience.
Parents can shop on Jumpingjack.com.au like a normal online store, with detailed clothing categories making it easier to find the exact items they need without scrolling through feeds of random items.
Just some of the benefits of buying and selling through Jumping Jack include:
Find nearly new, preloved clothing and quality brands at a much cheaper price.
Buy from families anywhere in Australia with both local pick-up and shipping options available.
Buy and sell single items or whole bundles. Purchase multiple items from one seller to save on postage!
Browsing is easy with a detailed search filter and every product listing includes details such as brand, size and colour so you have all the info you need to make a decision.
No more uncomfortable haggling with a firm price listed on each item, which the seller can adjust as they wish.
Secure payments made instantly via PayPal with additional protection and support to both buyers and sellers from Jumping Jack.
So here’s your chance to give your kids’ clothes a second life and make some extra cash, or be a conscious consumer through shopping on Jumping Jack.
Jumping Jack gives Australia an opportunity to reduce unnecessary textile waste through supporting families to prolong the life of baby and kids' clothes via the online marketplace.
