2Loops Online Family Store is a community volunteer-run recycling initiative of Budding Children’s Garden & Daycare Inc. - a continuation of their commitment to help families ensure usable children’s materials stay in circulation.
Since 2014, we have been collecting and hosting used children’s clothes and goods sales, which have become very popular with our community of young Vancouver families. Not only do we offer a place for them to recycle their old, or outgrown clothing and toys, we have created a fun and affordable place for them to acquire the next size of goods.
However, due to COVID-19, we are no longer able to host them in person. Both events in 2020, and our Spring 2021 event, had to be cancelled, so as a response, and in order to demonstrate leadership with regard to health and safety, we are excited about the opportunity to create a platform where families can still access high quality children’s goods for a nominal price, now online, with no-contact or social gathering.
While this is especially important while the pandemic continues, it will also allow us to expand and support many more families in an ongoing fashion. After the pandemic, we will have created a solid community of families who can avoid waste through our efforts.
2Loops is supported in part by funding from Alacrity Online Launch Grant.
