Reuse, Recycle and Repurpose

Greenflea

Greenflea is an Italian P2P social marketplace that allows people to sell and buy second-hand items (clothing, furniture and electronics), and to donate the same for upcycling purposes through Greenflea’s network of collection points. 

How does it work?

On Greenflea’s marketplace, everyone can sell items like clothing, furniture and electronics to the members of the community. 

For those who want to donate their clothes, it is possible to bring them in one of Greenflea’s collection points located across the country, where they will be upcycled. Thanks to such donations and a vibrant artisan community, Greenflea is able to create pet cushions and pet accessories. 


Who is doing it?

Hundreds of new users join Greenflea’s online marketplace day-on-day. With a community already exceeding the 10,000 mark, Greenflea’s marketplace makes it very easy for everyone who has unwanted clothes and textiles, is concerned about the environment, and wants to have a real impact on society. 

Where to start?

Around 80% of clothes globally end up in landfills or are incinerated.

Greenflea is creating a sustainability framework to help reduce the amount of waste that is produced, giving new life to textile materials.

Greenflea partners with local artisans to create hand-crafted repurposed products, avoiding landfill disposal for clothes that can no longer be mended or sold.
