Exciting news: WhoSki.com has been selected as a finalist in not just one but TWO categories at our local Merton Best Business Awards.
We have made it through to the finals in the categories of: Sustainable Impact AND Business Innovation.
As a circular economy business driving sustainability in the wintersports sector and helping keep ski wear in active use, WhoSki.com is a proud member of the local business community in the London Borough of Merton. However, our mission extends far beyond the Wimbledon SW19 area where we have our HQ.
REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
The beauty of the WhoSki.com platform is that it doesn’t matter where you live. By linking into our community of skiers and snowboarders, you gain access to a UK-wide community of people who want to update their wintersports wardrobe with good-as-new, affordable clothing.
So if you’ve got bags full of kids’ (and adults’) ski clothing that no longer suits your needs, post it for sale at WhoSki.com and you’ll be helping reduce the carbon footprint of every item sold. Remember too, we donate 25% of our commission to teen mental health charity stem4 on every sale.
If you’re looking for a new outfit, think pre-loved before you rent or buy, and you will be keeping emissions to a minimum – as well as making a charitable donation.
EXTEND YOUR CLOTHING’S ACTIVE LIFE
Experts calculate that extending the active life of clothing by just three months per item, leads to a 5-10% reduction in its carbon, water and waste footprint. By buying and selling at WhoSki.com you are helping keeping valuable textiles out of landfill and in circulation.
With ski clothing now starting to turn up in dumps of unwanted clothing in the Global South, it is more important than ever to make sure your secondhand fashion doesn’t make things worse for our beleaguered environment. Make this the season you think sustainable in every area of your life, including skiing.
