On YoungPlanet, thousands of parents give and request children’s items for free. We address the significant cost and waste issues associated with raising a family. Put simply, we are scaling and digitising hand-me-downs.

The YoungPlanet app started in London and launched nationally in October 2021. The positive impact of the app has led to national coverage from the BBCForbes, etc., and it was named one of the Top 10 Tech for Good Companies in the UK.

Our Vision – a world without waste wherein second-hand is the first choice for parents.

Our Mission – is to be the world’s best, most loved, (and free) circular economy platform.
