ThredUP is one of the most trusted fashion resale websites for consumers to buy and sell like-new clothing online. In 2017 Syndicode team helped to fill the engineering capacity gap in the thredUP R&D office in Ukraine. Since that time we continue a trustful partnership with thredUP. And today we’re happy to share the news about thredUP launched Upcycle platform for clothing recycle!
The latest news comes from massive online consignment site Thredup, which on Tuesday launched Upcycle. Upcycle is a new platform that aims to answer the question: How can eco-conscious brands engage with, and even capitalize on, the reselling of their wares? The program kicks off with none other than sustainability-minded favorite Reformation, which in April announced a commitment to divert 75,000 pieces of clothing from landfills this year by supporting the re-use and resale of secondhand clothing to a greater degree than it ever had.
An official co-signs from such brands could also bring more business to Thredup. The consignment site wouldn’t disclose which other retailers it will be onboarding on to this platform. Also in 2019, there are plans to take Upcycle a step further and allow shoppers to sell used goods directly through these third-party retailers’ websites and in their stores.
