Idea

The Problem

The way we buy is broken. Appliances break at twice the rate of 2004. Each year the UK bins 22m furniture items & more than half of its fast fashion. Short-lived items are a terrible waste of money, energy & resources.

Buy Me Once - a solution for people, planet & business

We research & sell long-lasting products, providing value for money for customers & a way for brands to compete on quality, while also tackling climate change driven by overconsumption & waste.

We work to find the ‘best in show’ in each product category. Our carefully curated range includes exclusive products & warranties, with over 60% of brands currently avoiding Amazon.
