eBay partners with Reskinned to expand preloved offerings
eBay has announced a new partnership with Reskinned, sustainable preloved clothing repair and resale “specialists”, to expand the online marketplace’s offering of preloved items and reduce growing fashion waste.
Reskinned takes back worn items from shoppers and reconditions them for resale, repurpose or recycling, which keeps the articles out of landfill and extends the product’s life.
The new partnership represents an expansion of eBay’s offering of preloved clothing to include a wide range of items which have been repaired and made fit for resale. It will also connect Reskinned with the marketplaces’ over 20 million shoppers through a “brand approved” shopfront.
In 2021, eBay says it helped save over 17,770 tonnes of fashion items out of landfill – the equivalent of 1,404 double-decker buses.
