iksplor more-send back program
At iksplor we created a closed-loop production process that minimizes environmental harm as much as possible and keeps your gear out of our landfills. When it’s time to pass your items on, don’t worry their adventures aren't over. Simply send them back (no matter the condition) via our “iksplor more-send back program.” We’ll reuse, repurpose, or compost your iksplor wear.
In return, not only will you feel amazing about reducing your carbon footprint, but you will also receive 15% off your next purchase.
We accept your used Iksplor clothing and essentials regardless of their condition. As parents we know kids are tough on everything – they’re supposed to be! Make responsibly disposing of your Iksplor clothing easy by sending it back to us to reuse or recycle. To have the least impact on mother earth, our goal is to extend the use of your garment by repurposing the pieces. This cuts down on overproduction. If the garment is in good condition, we will safely clean it so it’s adventures can continue with another little explorer!
If the garment is no longer in a condition where it can be used, we will either work with one of our nonprofit partners to recycle the materials for reuse, or compost the pieces. Merino wool can be composted within 6 months, which is a fraction of the time of synthetic garments!
