About uSell:

uSell was founded with the mission to reduce over consumption and help people live better by unlocking the value of waste. We believe that the current way that we consume, horde, and discard products is both inefficient and wasteful. We want to offer a better way. By enabling consumers to sell any high demand second hand good for the highest price with the least amount of effort, we make it easy to do the right thing. We extend the life of products by finding them a new home, and in doing so we enrich the lives of our sellers, our buyers, and those that are negatively impacted by the downstream impact of waste.
