3 reasons to sell with WhoSki

18th October 2019 Eco,Fashion

1 A proportion of our commission on EVERY SALE goes to support teenage mental health via our charity partner stem4. 

Among the reasons we love skiing are the fresh air, feeling of freedom, connection with nature and sheer joy of exercising at high altitude: all brilliant wellbeing boosters. That’s why when we were looking for a charity to support, we chose stem4 whose goal is to help foster good mental health in teenagers.

We guarantee that on every commission we earn, we pass on a percentage to stem4.

2 When 300,000 tonnes of textiles goes to landfill EVERY YEAR, surely it’s time to find a more sustainable way of dealing with no longer needed ski clothing?

Predictably, more than 99% of skiers own ski clothing (SkiClub of Great Britain consumer research), almost half of us buy at least one new piece of clothing every year, and 80% every two years. Those of us with kids know it’s a rare year when you don’t need to update their ski wardrobe. But when you give no longer wanted kit to the charity shop, be aware: the odds are it is trashed rather than re-sold.

Think sustainable: sell it on WhoSki instead and reduce the carbon footprint of your ski gear.    

3 It’s low cost and eco, so why not make this the season you update all or part of your ski wardrobe?

Resale value is the buzz-phrase among savvy fashion-lovers who no longer simply shop for clothes, but trade them in. It’s the way to feed your desire for a new look, while ticking the eco box, ensure your kids have got gear that fits but doesn’t cost a fortune. We all know: ski clothing is generally expensive to purchase, worn for a week a year and much of it shows little or no signs of damage.

So whether you’re a piste fashionista or a ski mum looking to clothe the kids, join the WhoSki community to exchange last year’s gear for a guilt-free outfit update.
