If you are a parent, simply add the primary or secondary schools your kids are in and start freecycling, buying and selling. Use it for pre-owned/second hand uniforms and all types of pre-owned school or non-school related books. For students, add your college to the app and freecycle, sell or buy pre-owned or used college texts.
Deal with local like-minded parents in the same schools that your kids go to and living in the same area as you. Let's stop the school uniform and book waste together!
The Schooly App has been built using best-in-class cloud security technologies. Login with Google, Facebook or Apple (where supported).
Schooly is uniquely built around your local schools/colleges and local area.
For parents, Schooly is uniquely built around your local primary and secondary schools and local area. For college students you use Schooly with your college or university. With Schooly you can add your preferred schools and then buy and sell school uniforms, equipment and books with others in the same school. This makes it very easy to find what you need and find buyers for your used uniforms and books quickly and without fuss. It also means you are dealing with other parents in the same area as you or students in the same college.
The developer of schooly has 4 kids and could not believe how many perfectly good uniforms and books (school, non-school - all kinds) were being thrown out. Perfectly good items that other kids could use. He kept hearing similiar stories from other parents in the area. That's why this app was built - stop the waste! Give them away for free or recoup some of the value of the original purchase price.
Freecycle, Sell, Buy and place wanted ads for all school uniforms, equipment and all types of books.
With schooly you can
While the focus is on second hand school uniforms, equipment and books, Schooly encourages parents to use the app to list all kinds of books - fiction and non-fiction. When was the last time you counted how many used books for kids or adults that are lying around the house? What a waste! Don't throw it out, get listing and allow someone else to enjoy it!
Send messages, ask questions, have private chats with other buyers and sellers.
Schooly allows you to ask questions about uniforms or books you see listed and have private conversations with other parents or students to arrange for collection.
If you see a wanted ad that you can help with, request a private chat with the person who needs it and talk privately with them to figure out if you have what they need.
Only get notified for the important stuff.
Schooly adopts a minimal notification policy. We will only send app notifications when something important happens. If you receive an offer on an item or someone wants to chat with you about a wanted ad you have placed we will send you a notification.
You can always see your full list of notifications and messages on the app menu but we try to minimise the noise.
Use your Google, Facebook or Apple (only on newer apple phones) accounts to quickly and easily create an account. Or just use email, it's up to you
Spread the word, tell other parents or students, let's work together to stop the waste!
Let's face it, no one feels good about throwing out perfectly usable school uniforms, equipment and books. The environment doesn't need it and your wallet (and conscience) might feel better if we stop doing it!
Yes! Now and always.
Every year millions of school uniforms, equipment and books are simply thrown out. What a waste. In many cases the uniforms could be used again to prevent needless waste.
Your School or PTA can ask parents to use the app to list their no longer needed items and donate the proceeds back to the school or PTA.
We only store your name and email adress. While using the application we ask for your location. We only store your rough location area and nothing specific. All this data is completely protected.
