Cress x Play It Green
In amazing news, CRESS and Play It Green have teamed up to form a new sustainability and social impact partnership!
CRESS is the one-stop shop where parents can buy preloved and sustainable new products, sell their children’s clothing, earn and save money, and do their bit for the planet.
Their circular community lets you buy and sell 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. They’re building a community of like-minded parents who are helping to build a better future for their little ones.
Now every purchase made with CRESS has an additional (optional) £1 added to it, which will plant two trees to help rebalance the delivery carbon and regive 10% back to Cress’s nominated giving partner, Young Lives vs Cancer.
CRESS is also being supported on its own sustainability journey with our educational content, frameworks and signposting.
We caught up with Carl Morris, CRESS’s Co-Founder to find out more about the company, what’s important to them and what the future holds!
