ENCINITAS, CA (October 18, 2021) - Sozy, a B-Corp certified, small female-founded clothing brand based in California, announces today their partnership with Treet, a peer-to-peer shopping app that helps fashion brands launch their own fully-branded resale marketplace. "The most sustainable clothing is the clothing you (or someone else) already owns." says Lanai Moliterno, Founder of Sozy. "So we wanted to encourage that kind of thinking by making pre-owned Sozy items available to our customers, who already love our brand and clothing." By partnering with Treet, Sozy can remain committed to their sustainability goals while letting Treet manage the logistics behind Sozy Pre-Loved.
Treet has revolutionized the resale retail market, earning upwards of $2.8 million in seed funding earlier this year. Although selling old clothes remains the most sustainable way to dispose of old clothing, it is a tedious and difficult task for fashion brands to take on themselves. Treet takes care of that task by creating a platform for brands to resell used items to new and potential customers alike. Customers simply post their used items on the site and ship the items once they're sold with a prepaid shipping label.
This is the latest effort by Sozy to continue to show commitment to sustainable and ethical practices. By creating a fashion brand that has sustainability baked into it, we are able to meet our customers closer to where they're at and take on a larger responsibility in paving the way for sustainable business models for years to come.
