To us, responsibility means the transparency of our own production chain and long lasting products that can be passed down from child-to-child. We bear full responsibility for our products. That is why we also want to help when it’s time to find new owners for your less-used KIVAT products.
Now you can send us back your used KIVAT products, and we will handle everything for you. We will refund you with a gift card to our online store.
For each product fit for selling, we will refund you with 50% or 70% of its estimated sale price. You do not need to worry about selling the clothes yourself or to wait for the products to be sold – you will receive the ready-to-use gift card almost instantly. Easy and fast!
Our recycling partner is the Finnish company Ninyes, which is the first and only European store that exclusively sells responsibly manufactured second-hand clothes. At Ninyes, you can also find the best second-hand KIVAT products.
We manufacture all KIVAT products using high-quality natural materials to make the products endure being used for hundreds of times. As their users grow, there comes a time when they need a new user.
We want to offer you a recycling opportunity that is not only as easy, safe, and fast as possible but also economically profitable.
The longer we can extend the useful life of a product, the smaller its overall environmental impact will be. Recycling enables us to diminish the carbon footprint of KIVAT products.
