At Mamas & Papas we want to take care of the world we’re leaving to our children. Mindful of the harm waste is causing to the world around us, we aim to reduce and manage it, making it easier for our customers to do the same.
So, this month, we’re proud to be supporting Oxfam’s Second Hand September campaign, an initiative designed to encourage people to buy second hand items, for the whole of September, with our own in-store Loved for Life initiatives...
Second Hand September was launched by Oxfam in 2019, and each year inspires thousands of people to shop in a way that’s kinder to the planet. By encouraging the donation and purchase of pre-loved fashion, the initiative aims to help reduce carbon emissions from new clothing while raising money for Oxfam’s charitable causes – namely supporting people to beat poverty and inequality. This year, we’ll be actively lending our support to Second Hand September, with our own in-store initiatives.
In seven participating Mamas & Papas stores, customers will be able to purchase a fully reconditioned pre-loved pushchair. And during Second Hand September, for every sale of a pre-loved pushchair, 100% of the profits will be donated to Oxfam, supporting families around the world to beat the injustice of poverty. By recirculating our pushchairs – buying second hand, we can help to reduce the demand for new ones. And this could in turn help to reduce the damage to our planet.
All pre-loved pushchairs have received a full valet and service, repairs carried out where necessary and have been fitted with:
- New wheels
New rain cover
New under basket
All pre-loved products will come with a 6 month warranty. Interested in purchasing a reconditioned pushchair this September? Find your closest participating Mamas & Papas store
Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle
We’ll also be offering our support to Second Hand September through continuing our successful ‘Reduce Re-Use Recycle’ service. The initiative, available in selected Mamas & Papas stores nationwide, allows you to easily and conveniently donate your unwanted baby and children’s clothing, shoes, accessories and nursery items, so that they can be given a new lease of life. The service is free to use, and you can donate any baby and children’s items – they don’t need to be from Mamas & Papas.
Plus, during September you will receive £5 off your same day shop in store when you donate.
