Online womenswear retailer Sosandar – which has announced a host of new wholesale partnerships with established retailers in recent months – is now allowing its customers to resell and recycle unwanted garments via a tie-up with Worn By Us.
People can use the scheme to resell clothing and earn money back or donate to charity, as part of Sosandar’s efforts to become a more circular business in line with growing consumer demand for this type of retail model.
Announcing the resell and recycle launch a couple of weeks after revealing it made record quarterly revenue in the three months to the end of December 2022, Sosandar said: “Still not gotten around to sorting out that pile of clothes you don’t wear anymore?
“Let us do it for you! We’ve teamed up with Worn By Us to help you resell or recycle your pre-loved pieces. De-clutter your wardrobe, make money on your unwanted clothes and do your bit for the planet – what’s not to love?”
Worn By Us is one of an array of companies helping fashion retail become a more circular sector. It calls itself a one-stop shop for the re-selling and recycling of pre-loved clothing. Consumers opting to sell their goods via the platform can opt to receive 50% of the resale value of each item sold, or donate the full 50% to a charity of their choice.
Items accepted through the new resell and recycle partnership, include: all Sosandar garments in re-saleable condition; other designer or premium high street/online fashion brands in new or excellent condition; all sizes; new with tags items; second-hand clean items.
Worn By Us will not take sleepwear and lingerie, altered or counterfeit items, non-sized or labelled products, goods with obvious wear and tear, or non-clothing items – apart from shoes and bags.
Sosandar is a growing UK fashion business, and announced this week that it is set to start a wholesale partnership with Sainsbury’s. The online-first company also sells its goods online and in stores via collaborations with Very, John Lewis, and Next.
