An update from the Mutu team

Aug, 31, 2021, by Laura Taylor

As the winter months, end and spring cleaning begins we are excited to help Kiwis make the most of their stuff by lending it through Mutu! In this update, we will cover what we got up to in August, and what we’re planning for September!

Website launch

On the 9th of August, we launched our new website! Our team of developers had been working hard on it over the past few months. This made the feeling even better when we saw how much everyone was enjoying it. The launch of our new website now means you can use Mutu via our website, app, or both! This includes: listing items, renting items, browsing items and everything in between. Some of our favourite things about our new website are that it makes renting on Mutu more shoppable, alongside also being easier for new Mutu members to find. It will also make things a whole lot easier for some of the exciting things we have planned for the future.

Sustainable Business Awards

We are stoked to let you know that in August we were announced as a finalist for the Going Circular 2021 Sustainable Business Award. We are proud to be nominated alongside other businesses doing amazing things towards generating a circular economy such as Happy Cow Milk, SOLID Oral Care, Maggie Marilyn and more! You can follow this link to read more about what the award means. Fingers crossed we receive more good news at the awards ceremony on the 25th of November!


We hope everyone is managing to stay happy and healthy during the current lockdown restrictions! A reminder that as Mutu does not consider ourselves an essential service, during Level 4 lending and renting is not able to occur. However, during this time you can still continue to list items that can be rented out when the Alert Levels drop. Click here to read more about our COVID-19 policies and updates.
