What is brand-certified resale and which fashion brands offer it now?

Treet Shop Brand Certified Re-sale

As the focus on sustainability continues to grow, the resale economy is playing a bigger role than ever before. In fact, the future of fashion looks a lot like used clothes, and the movement is being fueled primarily by Gen Z. 

Thrifting is a great option for shopping sustainably

Apart from shopping brands that only use fair and sustainable practices throughout (which you should absolutely be doing, and eco-stylist is a great place to start), buying secondhand offers an impactful sustainable option by extending the life of each garment, keeping it out of landfills, and replacing the need to produce new items. What may have been considered niche in the past has now gained popularity as younger generations redefined new fashion to mean ‘new to me’. More and more Zoomers are shopping resale and are proud to don unique gems they’ve scored sustainably, and for a fraction of the original price. 

Why don’t brands re-sell their own secondhand clothes?

Thankfully, brands have been paying attention to the secondhand shopping trend and have started creating their own resale experiences. Treet is a resale platform that works with dozens of brands to create their own online resale shops that make buying and selling pre-loved items easy and hassle-free. Because Treet partners with brands directly, shoppers can be sure they’re getting authentic, pre-approved items in the mail. What’s also cool is that brands often use their resale sites to sell off excess inventory like factory seconds that are still new, for much less.

Where can you find and shop brand certified resale?
