Creating a positive impact

Creating a positive impact on the planet and our community is at the heart of what we do at Cress. We have several ongoing projects…

Current Initiatives

Golden Service: Time-poor parents can participate in our Golden Service, where they can send in bags of clothes, and we take care of the rest, making the process of buying and selling preloved items hassle-free.

Promoting Literacy: Every purchase through our Golden Service is accompanied by a free book to encourage kids’ reading and education. Read more here

Community Platform: Utilising AI technology, our community platform will list all free educational events for children during school holidays throughout the UK. This initiative aims to help parents save money while keeping their kids engaged and enriched. (launching spring 2024)

Play It Green Partnership: We are teaming up with ‘Play It Green’ (to enable all our customers to plant a tree for just £1 at the checkout, effectively offsetting the carbon produced during product delivery
