What’s the story?
Clothing-delivery app Nift, aka Need It For Tonight, was launched by sisters Simone and Roxanne Oloman who wanted clothing from their favourite brands delivered superfast.

Why should,I buy?
Nift partners with shops that have strong sustainability credentials. Delivery is as close to carbon neutral as possible using eco-friendly bikes.

The extra mile
The app offers real-time tracking to prevent missed deliveries. It uses a courier company that is part of the Living Wage Foundation. Nift also works with Ecologi to plant a tree for every delivery.
