At By Rotation we put sustainability and community at the forefront of everything that we do. As the only pure peer-to-peer rental app in the UK we are committed to change the fashion industry with a business model based on circularity. Our aim is to prolong the lifecycle of quality clothes that are already in circulation and avoid adding to the £140 worth textile waste that goes to landfill every year [WRAP
As part of our commitment to becoming a fully sustainable business we have partnered with eco-friendly cleaning and repair service The Clothes Doctor to offer our users a sustainable alternative as well as to encourage them to mend and restore any items to lengthen their lifecycle.
