About the Babytek
The Babytek is a handy system for borrowing baby items that you only need for a short time. It works like a library of things, lending baby supplies needed during the first year of the baby’s life.
Our lending service for baby items aspires to make sustainable baby supplies available to all. Becoming a member, new parents can borrow items for testing and using in a fun and accessible way. As their baby grows, they return the supplies for someone else’s use. The Babytek encourages personal contacts, sustainability and social inclusion aiming for more livable communities.
