Tapping into the $5Tn Circular Economy
Today’s consumers are becoming increasingly eco-conscious — even when it comes to the clothes on their back.
And it makes sense. After all, textile-related items are the second largest contributor to the world’s landfills. Some 85% of all clothing discarded in the US (13 million tons each year) ends up in a landfill. Only 13.5% end up being recycled. It’s estimated these garments are worn seven times at most before being thrown in the trash. (3)
This is an increasingly serious problem in a world of fast fashion, where outfits are more affordable, and inventory is cycled in and out of stores at a pace never before seen.
And in the world of kids’ apparel, this kind of waste has always been a problem. Kids grow faster than anyone else, leaving most families with a closet full of well-worn hand-me-downs at best, or an old chest full of old baby clothes that won’t fit anyone.
That’s where the “Circular Economy” can really shine.
Like the name implies, it’s all about creating a cycle for clothing that ends with items being reused or repurposed, instead of simply ending up in the trash.
This is why the fashion world’s “Circular Economy” is becoming a bigger and bigger opportunity; a truly transformative trend that’s estimated to reach as much as $5Tn annually in the coming years.
PK Beans is a serious first-mover in this new and exciting niche, with the company’s new “Preloved” section on their website.
Parents can return their lightly-used garments on consignment for a store credit, easing the burden on their pocketbook as their kids shoot up in height. Each incoming garment is inspected, steamed, and presented on the website at an impressive discount. Busy parents don’t have time to do this extra work, so the ease of the process combined with seeing their clothing as an in-vest-ment, makes for positive feelings about the company.
This new program is a tremendous win for the company—since it effectively allows them to sell the same garments twice. At a 60% margin for the company, from a sustainable in-house system that only further strengthens the brand and creates loyalty.
And based on these 5 potential driver indicators, PBBSF needs to be on your radar immediately.
