What is Recommerce?

Recommerce Definition

Recommerce is an increasingly popular concept that has been gaining traction over the past few years. In simple terms, it refers to the practice of reselling or reusing items that have already been used. This can encompass a wide range of products, including clothing, electronics, and even cars.

The beauty of recommerce is that it combines both environmental sustainability and economic opportunity— by extending the life of used products, we can reduce waste and carbon emissions while also giving others the chance to enjoy them. From online marketplaces like ThredUp and Poshmark to physical consignment stores and even major retailers like Patagonia, recommerce is quickly becoming a mainstay in the world of consumerism.
