eBay and VAUDE launch Re-commerce shop

March 3, 2015 – The global commerce platform eBay, together with VAUDE, launches the "VAUDE-Second-Use-Shop" in Germany. Private sellers can sell VAUDE brand products in the Re-commerce shop that they no longer need.

As good as new. Just better for the environment.

People who want to shop environmentally responsible will find used outdoor clothing and mountain sport equipment for reduced prices. By participating in the store as a buyer or a seller, users are extending the useful life of products, keeping quality items from being sent to landfill.

Antje von Dewitz, Managing Director VAUDE Sport:

»The VAUDE-Second-Use-Shop on eBay is another important pillar of our comprehensive sustainability strategy. We are pleased that now we are able to be environmentally even stronger engaged not only during the production phase but also once the product exists. The longer a product is being used, the lower is its ecological footprint.«

With the launch of the VAUDE-Second-Use-Shop on eBay, the mountain sport equipment company further follows its sustainability commitment. VAUDE is the first outdoor brand that eBay in Germany has created a designated shop for used products for. With the eBay-cooperation, VAUDE is now even more engaged in the use phase of products and helps to extend product life cycles significantly.

»VAUDE is the perfect partner for us as they have sustainability imprinted in their company DNA just like us.«

Martin Barthel, Senior Director Verticals, eBay Germany

The most sustainable product is a used product

Environmental protection is firmly anchored in the corporate strategy of VAUDE and is demonstrated in the use of sustainable materials, environmentally friendly manufacturing processes and social standards at the production sites.
