AN ESTIMATED £140 MILLION WORTH OF CLOTHING ENDS UP IN LANDFILLS EACH YEAR1
it is important to us that your clothing (Frugi or not) lasts for as long as possible to help protect the planet that we all play on. So, we’ve created our Add a Little Love care and mend guides to help you do just that – from learning how to sew on a button and patch up a hole to looking after your welly boots!
We hate waste. We’ll do anything to avoid it. So, to help you keep your Frugi (and other) clothes in play for longer, we’ve created our brand-new, sew-on repair patches. This handy 3-pack is perfect for sewing over a small hole or hiding a stubborn stain, and the fun designs make them great for customisations too. Crafted from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles with a cotton backing, we’ve made them sew-on to maximise their sustainability and allow you to re-use them once your kid has outgrown their clothing.
Here are some handy videos to teach you all the tips and tricks for helping you to keep your clothing going, playtime after playtime!
Caring for your clothes is caring for the Planet! Here are some nifty little tricks and tips to help keep your Frugi looking FRUGITASTIC!
SAVE WATER & CLOTHES
If it's not dirty, don't wash it!
Delicate cycles are shorter and gentler, causing a lot less friction for your threads!
Keep things bright and colourful with a non-biological eco detergent (ideally a liquid). Eco fabric conditioners should be used sparingly as natural fibres don’t really like it!
HANG YOUR WASHING
Whenever possible hang your Frugi clothes up and out to dry, better for the environment and your Frugi threads.
IRON INSIDE OUT
If you iron, keep your clothing inside out especially for anything printed.
BEWARE OF THE BANANA
Did you know banana stains turn black and are almost impossible to remove from clothing!
WASH AT 30 DEGREES
First rinse off any mud, then if you still need to wash at 30º max.
Keep things bright and colourful with a non-biological eco detergent (ideally a liquid). Do not use fabric conditioners it will degrade the waterproof finish!
HANG YOUR WASHING
Hang your Frugi coat up and out to dry. Make sure you turn it inside out to dry the fleecy side too! NEVER tumble dry!
CLEAN WITH FRESH WATER
After you’ve finished exploring, splashing, skipping and jumping, clean me with fresh water and allow to dry naturally.
Store in a cool, dry place - not too hot and not too cold! Keep me away from radiators!
