Finally it's coming!
A clothing rental subscription. It's popular in the US, Australia and Asia, and now its coming to the UK. It's a more sustainable and economical way to shop without sacrificing style.
How does it work?
Once you have subscribed to a monthly plan follow these 4 steps.
1. Browse our collection (we have over 200 styles for you to browse).
2. Choose your three items.
3. Receive and enjoy.
4. When your month is up, simply return to us using the box we sent.
What are the monthly plans?
We have two plans available;
Both plans include postage, cleaning and rental insurance for any minor mishaps. With the update plan you can rent items worth a total value of up to £700+ per month for just £59. With the ultimate plan, you can rent items worth a total value of £3000+ per month for just £169. We think it makes sense to rent, both financially and environmentally.
This is important for us. From day one this has been at the forefront of Reason to Rent. The brands we partner with are doing their bit too, whether it be focusing on slow fashion or using deadstock material. We are working hard to ensure our operations are sustainable and environmentally friendly too. We use sustainable packaging and deliver via bicycle where possible. We want to do it all!
Two years ago I was looking for a more sustainable, economical and minimal way to shop. I knew that clothing rental was a more environmentally friendly and cheaper way to shop. However I found that most online clothing rental sites only offered expensive designer dresses for one off occasions.
I was looking for day to day wear as I wanted to look stylish, minimise my fashion waste whilst staying on a budget. I was after high-end high street and sustainably made clothes. Clothes that I would normally wear, but I couldn't justifying buying as I would only wear a handful of times.
This is how the idea of Reason to Rent was born. During the first year, I was working full time and began researching to see if there was a market for this. I ran surveys, various social media campaigns and spoke to anyone who would listen. At the start of 2020 I left full time employment and started to turn my dream into a reality.
Reason to Rent is a rental clothing subscription service. It is a more sustainable way to shop, introduces you to new up and coming brands and allows you to wear hundreds of pounds worth of clothes a month for a fraction of the price.
