What does Change Your Clothes really mean? It's about loving fashion in a way that's kinder to the planet. Here are some of the actions we're taking—and you're taking by renting—to bring about that change.

Rewearing + Repairing

Renting means more clothes in your life, but it also means adding more life to clothes. We carefully clean, maintain and repair items, allowing them to be reworn over and over again, extending their lifespan and usage. When you rent from Nuuly, you're choosing from a shared closet with 1000s of options—and making a choice to step out of the fast fashion cycle.

When you rent from Nuuly, you're choosing from a shared closet with 1000s of options—and making a choice to step out of the fast fashion cycle. Renting means more clothes in your life, but it also means adding more life to clothes. We carefully clean, maintain and repair items, allowing them to be reworn over and over again, extending their lifespan and usage. Which ultimately means less clothing production and less waste.

Rethinking Materials + Methods

From Day 1, we knew we wanted to reduce and eventually eliminate single-use plastics at Nuuly. Our proprietary garment bag allows us to neatly roll, pack and ship clothes without using plastic hangers or bags.

This reusable bag is constructed from post-consumer plastic, meaning it's both recycled AND recyclable. It's durable—making a minimum of 35 round trips—and because it always makes its way back to us through customer returns, we can responsibly recycle it at the end of its working life.

It's durable—making 35 round trips in place of 70 cardboard boxes—and because it always makes its way back to us through customer returns, we can responsibly recycle it at the end of its working life.

Supporting Sustainable Brands

We carry independent brands that are also committed to changing your clothes. Their commitments are brand-unique and far-reaching—from making zero-waste clothing from recycled remnant materials, to reducing the amount of water used to produce a single pair of jeans from 1500 gallons down to just 8, to working directly with Mongolian goat herders on the preservation of the Gobi Desert.

Designing for change.

We carry dozens of independent brands that are committed to producing clothing in a less wasteful, more sustainable way. These commitments are each brand-unique and far-reaching. Some are making zero-waste clothing from recycled remnant materials. One works directly with Mongolian goat herders on the preservation of the Gobi Desert. Others are reducing the amount of water used to produce a single pair of jeans from 1500 gallons down to just 8.

Gentler Cleaning + Energy Practices

At our custom-built cleaning facility, we use both dry and wet cleaning methods. Wet cleaning sounds like your washing machine at home, but these state-of-the-art machines use cleaning solutions that are non-alkaline and phosphate-free, making them gentler on the environment than household detergent. They're also more energy and water-efficient. Over 60% of our product is cleaned this way.

Check out all of the ways the URBN family of brands is committed to a more sustainable future.
