For any entrepreneurs out there wanting a ready-made business, the business I set up with my husband a few years ago, Clean Slate Fair Trade and Organic School Uniforms is available at minimal cost. Clean Slate was the UK's first Fair Trade and Organic school uniform supplier and there was a huge demand for our products for children with eczema which was made worse by the chemicals used to make school uniforms 'Easy Care' and 'Non-iron'
As Pachacuti became increasingly successful, we couldn't run two businesses and took Clean Slate off line two years ago. However, we have still been getting daily phone calls from parents wanting to our purchase Fair Trade and Organic school uniforms! We have a room full of varied stock - school shirt, trousers, skirts etc and would be happy to let the business go at a really minimal price (probably about £2 per garment) to try to cover cost price on saleable stock. Happy to give away the business name, all website design, photoshoots of the uniforms etc.
It has the potential to be a business which is easy to run and profitable, but the supply chain for the school uniforms needs to be re-established with fairtrade, organic producers. I would love to get the warehouse clear of the many boxes of stock we still have as I am paying monthly storage for school uniform we will never get around to selling. So if anyone out there is interested in a new business, please let me know! Please email: carry(at)panamas.co.uk
