sustainable shopping and selling, at last.

Finally, a better way to exchange quality children’s clothes that doesn’t damage the planet, or your pocket.

what is cress?

In 2023, a passing conversation turned into a big idea. We believed that there had to be a better solution to shopping for our children, and the accumulated waste from clothes they were growing out of.

Not to mention the fancy dress costumes, and party dresses they would only wear once.

So we created a simple one-stop shop where parents could buy and sell their children’s clothing, earn and save money, and do their bit for the planet.

why cress?

Kids outgrow their clothes like it’s going out of fashion. Our circular community lets you buy, sell, donate and recycle your children’s clothing, from family to family, so instead of doing the rounds between your friends, you can make the world go round instead. 

Cress is about more than being more eco-conscious and making or saving money. We’re building a community of like-minded parents that are helping to build a better future for their little ones.

And you never have to deal with bin bags of unwanted clothing again.

  • Who are you and how are you different from other marketplaces?

    Because we’re better dressed. Really. We’re not some big corporate business. We’re here to create a social marketplace where people can save and make money and reduce the impact of fashion on our planet. Recycled clothes with a cause.

  • How do I set up a profile?

    Click the ‘become a vendor’ button in the top right hand corner of the homepage or the burger menu on mobile. This will open the account page, where you have the option to sign in or sign up.

  • How do I sell an item?

    You can start selling once you’ve set up your profile. Add an item for sale by following the steps in your profile, adding photos and answering some questions.

You can also click on the seller’s profiles to see their ratings from previous sales or give them a follow and message.
