Welcome to Live Love Lend

That's why we made Live Love Lend - a place where its easy for parents to make sustainable shopping choices. 

 

We do this in three ways;

About us 

Hi, thank you for visiting us at Live Love Lend.  We are Tess and Hayley the founders of Live Love Lend. Between us we have five girls under five so enjoy busy lives.

Since becoming parents we have watched our rubbish bins fill to the top, our garages overflow with barely used kids stuff and our wallets shrink.  Lets face it 'kids are not cheap'.  It was this frustration which made us question what we were buying, how we were using it and how much we were throwing in the bin.

 

We borrowed a lot of baby gear off each other and it was this borrowing which was the start of the idea for Live Love Lend. We've now extended beyond the idea of borrowing to cover a large range of ways to help parents make sustainable choices to reduce their overall environmental footprint. 

Live Love Lend aims to

  1. Make it easier for parents to make sustainable product choices and reduce the environmental impact of parenting

  2. Enable access everyone to be able to borrow quality items off others

  3. Reduce the costs of parenting 

  4. Support small businesses who offer quality products that support sustainability or waste reduction

What makes us different?

Peer to peer rentals - a unique way to borrow baby items. Perfect for meeting short-term needs, reducing clutter or making travelling easier

A better selling experience - list your items in one place and reach a large audience who can easily search for your items

A better buying experience - avoid the junk, purchase quality items with options to suit all budgets - buy, rent or find giveaways

Support for small sustainable business - our Sustainability Shop helps you easily search for products that are sustainable or environmentally friendly
