Lad Bible

"Making toy-swapping the go-to option is a priority for us because it benefits everyone. We want to help people save money and declutter without feeling guilty about their items going into landfill.

There is also a great deal of satisfaction to be had in seeing something that was not being used doing what it's supposed to do with another family - the simple joy of giving is often overlooked, and because we are free to use, it makes it easier to do. We hope that the YoungPlanet community will continue to grow and help more families."

“As a busy parent, being environmentally-conscious isn’t always the priority and there’s often a higher price to pay for ‘greener’ brands. With YoungPlanet, we wanted to make a ‘greener’ and more practical option the logical choice by making it easier for parents to exchange unused or no longer used things.

And it’s working! We’ve enabled thousands of families to not only declutter sustainably but also help other families by giving them access to the things they need or want, for free.”
