SPRING 2021 GRANTEES

Poshmark’s Heart & Hustle Community Fund Advisory Council considered hundreds of inspired submissions from 40 U.S. states and 8 Canadian provinces and territories prior to handpicking final winners. Selected recipients represent a wide range of sellers—from a daughter balancing a full-time business while taking care of her sick mother to a college student paying for tuition with their Poshmark earnings.

All grant recipients will receive an economic boost alongside the resources to take their businesses to new levels. 

Cheers to our spring grantees!

Poshmark Canada Turns Two, a Report by Poshmark

Today we’re celebrating the two year anniversary of Poshmark Canada! With buyers, sellers, secondhand-lovers, and entrepreneurs alike, our thriving community has grown to over 2.5 million Canadians across the country who have listed nearly half a billion dollars worth of inventory. Since we launched in May 2019, we have rerouted over 200k pounds from landfills in jeans alone1, extending the lifespan of the items we own and reducing our environmental impact, while supporting a new generation of entrepreneurs and shoppers.

So cheers to all of you who help make Poshmark a fun and social place where everyone can thrive.

From Vancouver to Yellowknife and back down to Toronto, the Poshmark Canada community is proudly represented across all 13 provinces and territories.

Poshmark is fuelled by a vibrant community that loves to connect, share, and support one another, making selling and shopping simple, social, and fun.

Community is the heart and soul of Poshmark. People don’t just come to buy and sell—they also come to find human connection, especially in light of the past year. In a time where many were faced with changes and challenges, one thing remained constant: the Poshmark community and the friendships, mentorship opportunities, and interactions you virtually had with one another.

From women’s, men’s, kids, and pets to home decor, accessories, beauty, and more—Poshmark has become your one-stop-shop for a range of new and secondhand items.

Our community ranges from casual sellers, frequent shoppers, secondhand enthusiasts, side hustlers, and even full-fledged business owners.

Happy 2 years to our growing community of buyers and sellers. We wouldn’t be where we are today without your passion, determination, and hustle!


Data represents purchases, listings, and engagements from May 29, 2019 – April 30, 2021. 

1 Calculations based on average weight of a pair of jeans (average weight = 1kg – source: https://bit.ly/3tFsRvu) multiplied by the total number of jeans sold on Poshmark Canada between May 29, 2019 – April 30, 2021.

Posh For The Planet: Poshmark Celebrates Earth Month

Did you know it takes about 7,500 liters of water to make a single pair of jeans? Or that the average consumer throws away 60 percent of clothing within a year of purchase? This Earth Month, we celebrate Poshers that are helping to preserve the Earth’s precious resources by promoting circularity and shopping secondhand. 

Each and every one of you is helping to fuel a new, more sustainable way to shop — one where products go on to live second, third, fourth lives, and beyond! This exciting shift to secondhand is growing, particularly among younger generations who want to reduce their consumption and support a more sustainable future. As of 2019, secondhand items comprised 74 percent of items sold on Poshmark and new features like Reposh have made it easy for you to recirculate these items again and again, in just one click. 

Circularity is good for our closets and the planet. The more wear we get out of a pair of jeans, for example, the fewer jeans we need to produce. According to the United Nations Environment Programme, switching to circular models — including resale and secondhand — could help the fashion industry cut around 143 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions in 2030. Since Poshmark’s founding in 2011, we’ve made a lot of progress growing consumer adoption of secondhand shopping — but there is still a lot to do to make secondhand shopping everyone’s first choice.

The Scoop on Secondhand Style Today

One of the ways we stay at the forefront of emerging trends is looking at what each of you are buying and selling. Over the past year, we’ve seen just how you are leading the shift to secondhand. Y2K throwbacks, streetwear staples and cozy intimates topped our list for most popular secondhand styles, particularly among Gen Z, proving that secondhand is continuing to take up more space in our closets. But even more exciting is how secondhand is branching out beyond our closets into other parts of our home and life, with kitchen items like coffee and tea essentials, home accents and dining each growing nearly 3x from the year prior. 

Information is Power: Educating and Empowering Our Community of Secondhand Champions

Poshmark shoppers and sellers are proof that you don’t have to compromise style to support sustainability. As a thank you for helping to drive secondhand shopping and selling, and to continue to foster awareness and education about the benefits of secondhand, we are inviting members of the Poshmark community to join a special climate change awareness training. If you’re interested in joining, RSVP here. Stay tuned for more details.

Now through Earth Day on April 22nd, we’re hosting conversations, providing eco-friendly tips, and highlighting Poshmark sellers who source and sell secondhand styles. Here’s this week’s lineup, check back for more content and resources. Wishing everyone a Happy Earth Month and we celebrate YOU as we Posh for the Planet together!

Join us virtually for a conversation about sustainability with three amazing Poshers on April 20th at
4:30pm PT. RSVP here.
Coming soon! Get ready to sell and discover
some sustainable, secondhand items at
this special Posh Party.

Join the #PoshForThePlanet conversation on social media!

Poshmark Joins the PASS Coalition: Using Our Voice to Advocate for Our Seller Community

Today, Poshmark announced it has joined a number of other industry-leading marketplaces to advocate for small online sellers as new eCommerce legislation comes to the forefront. 

We believe there is an important voice missing from key policy decisions that are progressing in state legislatures around the country — and the ramifications will undoubtedly be felt by millions of people who use marketplaces like ours to sell online. 

That’s why we’re proud to be part of a newly formed coalition of leading eCommerce platforms alongside eBay, Etsy, Mercari and Offer Up, who have joined forces to advocate for our sellers. The Coalition to Protect America’s Small Sellers (PASS Coalition) is proudly representing the interests of millions of small online sellers who depend on eCommerce to compete and thrive in the digital age.

eCommerce has seen a remarkable uptick over the past year as a result of COVID – as millions of individuals, small businesses, and entrepreneurs joined eCommerce marketplaces to save and make money. At the same time, legislation that does not adequately protect the rights of these sellers has advanced across the country.

There is an urgent need for the rights and interests of small online sellers to not only be heard by policymakers across the country, but also understood. That is where the PASS Coalition comes in. For example, new marketplace verification and disclosure requirements (often referred to as “INFORM Acts”) would jeopardize the privacy of millions of small online sellers by requiring them to publicly disclose their full name, address, phone number and email address if they are considered a “high-volume seller” (defined as having made 200 or more discrete sales in a 12-month period amounting to $5,000 or more).

We believe this type of public disclosure compromises our sellers’ privacy, security, and ability to thrive. We are actively working with fellow members of the PASS Coalition to push for amendments that both consider and protect small online sellers.  

If you would like to learn more, please visit the PASS Coalition website, where you’ll find more information about current and pending legislation that may affect Poshmark sellers. You’ll also find ways you can take action and use your voice to influence pending legislation.

We believe it is possible to find solutions that address eCommerce policy concerns while also supporting and protecting the needs of small online sellers.
