It’s a frustration new parents know all too well; you buy some basic baby clothing items, and within the blink of an eye they’ve either grown out of it, or they’ve covered it in something sticky and unwashable.
Then, once they’re finally asleep, you spend your evening scrolling on your phone for new cotton baby clothes that are well-priced and won’t just end up in a landfill once they’ve been outgrown.
To help take the stress out of shopping for new baby clothes every few months, Gays With Kids is partnering with Cubbiekit; the baby clothing subscription service that does good for both your family and the planet.
Cubbiekit manufactures super-soft 100 percent-certified organic cotton clothing essentials, automatically delivering a new box of baby basics when it’s time for your little one to size up.
Every 3-4 months, parents who subscribe can browse through Cubbiekit’s online selection and mix-and-match their next box of six clothing items. Within a week, you’ll receive a new collection of age-appropriate clothing essentials to fit baby’s new size and the new season.
“Between the gender normative options and the ‘Insta-ready’ marketing geared exclusively toward moms (dads are shopping too!) I wondered why it was so hard to find just the basics,” said Salwa Kahn, mom of two and CEO of Cubbiekit. “I wanted to buy new, but do it responsibly.”
As an eco-conscious company, Cubbiekit works on a “closed-loop” system. That means when you're ready to de-clutter, they will take your pre-loved clothes back to donate to charitable partners, or to make new Cubbiekit items.
“Instead of harvesting new cotton to manufacture, we use our own materials to create new clothing. So our manufacturer will actually take the returned items and spin it into new fibers,” explained Kahn. “We have also fully vetted our donation partners, to make sure these clothes go to people in need and don’t just end up back in landfills.”
Shop for new baby clothes in a cost-effective and eco-friendly way. Dads from the GWK community can take 20 percent off a $90 subscription to Cubbiekit with the code GWKCK20 at checkout.
