Founded as a California Benefit Corporation in 2012, Yerdle was born from the belief that we need new, more circular business models[3] to address the growing challenge of fast fashion[4].[5]

Yerdle helps brands compete with a new market of online and physical resale[6] companies including TheRealReal, ThredUP, Rent the Runway, Vestiaire Collective and Poshmark.



Yerdle was featured at WEF's annual Davos event as one of six finalists for the Circulars award[7], part of Fashion for Good innovators Scaling program[8], and part of Elemental Excelerator's equity and access program[9].


Yerdle was originally a peer to peer marketplace that used an alternative currency[10] to exchange items. Yerdle transitioned from the peer to peer (P2P) platform in 2016, into business to business (B2B) service supporting brands with white label web and logistics services in resale.
