Made.com has teamed up with global giving platform Geev, to offer customers the chance to find a new home for their preloved homewares. The partnership forms part of MADE’s long term commitment to bringing sustainability to the business.

How does it work?

Follow the steps below…

  1. Place an order at MADE.com and click ‘get started’ when you reach the order success screen
  2. Choose from one of the five partner charities and click the link through to Geev
  3. Sign up to Geev and post an ad for your unwanted furniture or homewares
  4. Once the ad is validated and posted on Geev, 10% of your order value is donated to your selected charity.

Why has MADE.com launched this now?

As part of its bid to become a more sustainable brand, MADE.com has partnered with Geev to find new ways to extend the life of its products. The channel allows customers to rehome furniture and homewares within their local community, therefore giving a second chance to goods they no longer need.

When was Geev originally conceived?

Geev became established in 2017 as an online platform enabling users to donate unwanted items to others in their neighbourhoods for free. Individuals can donate food, clothing, furniture and homewares, furthermore the platform now has 2.8 million users globally including in France and Canada.

Geev has  given a second home to almost 9 million products since its inception. Join the movement today by finding our more on the MADE.com site and kicking off the process.
