If you haven’t heard of Gurgl before, it’s a new social enterprise that is a library for preloved infant clothing. It provides a platform for parents to recycle their children’s wardrobes and then borrow more, selecting the items they would like to borrow online. The longer you are a member of Gurgl, the more clothing items you can borrow. Gurgl recently won Massey University’s Go Innovate! competition for 2017.
There are Gurgl clothing collection boxes in all our libraries until 14th October: they welcome children’s clothing donations whether or not you would like to become a member of this new service. If you’d like to learn more the service this not-for-profit organisation is offering, visit their website at www.gurgl.nz
