One Cherry is an award-winning social enterprise startup based in Edinburgh. We created an online marketplace that makes shopping for pre-loved items from local shops more convenient and accessible to the customers. One Cherry helps local second-hand shops, such as charity shops, be more profitable by increasing their footfall, promotes circular economy thus supporting the great work done by the charities.
Today, second-hand marketplaces are growing 20 times faster than retailers overall. The global clothing resale alone is expected to jump from £12.8b in 2016 to £23.4b by 2021. We aim to ride this trend and make it easier for people to adopt the “make, use, return” model. Meanwhile, we help charity shops to be more profitable and raise more money for good causes.
We launched in Summer 2018 in Edinburgh and plan to expand across the UK taking more shops online. Our mission is to make sustainable second-hand shopping convenient and accessible to everyone.
