Sustainable Brands 2012 - PlanetReuse Marketplace


July 03, 2012

In June, we attended the Sustainable Brands Conference in San Diego, CA. This conference brings together major brands who care about their impact on environment and society. PlanetReuse participated in the conference's Causeway Initiative that aimed to promote partnerships between not-for-profits or social enterprises with large companies to bring a positive, social and environmental change. PlanetReuse presented alongside organizations such as Sierra Club, Forest Stewardship Council, and World Wildlife Fund and urged companies to source reclaimed materials for new projects and to deconstruct for reuse.

PlanetReuse Marketplace powered by InvenQuery was selected as a finalist in the Sustainable Brands Innovation Open competition. PlanetReuse Marketplace was one of six companies chosen from more than one hundred applicants to pitch its business concept to a panel of judges. After an initial round of presentations PlanetReuse Marketplace was included in the top four companies and given the opportunity to present on the main conference stage. You can view our four-minute pitch before a live audience here.

We would like to congradulate the winner of the Innovation Open, Ecofiltro, a social enterprise that sells low cost water filtration systems in the third world. Learn about Ecofiltro's impact.

Participation in Sustainable Brands '12 and the Innovation Open provided an excellent opportunity to meet many other aspiring entrepreneurs that are doing amazing things, spread the word about building materials reuse and introduce major corporations to a variety of reuse possibilities.

PlanetReuse has begun testing its proprietary InvenQuery technology platform, a web- and mobile app-based system that offers real-time inventory, point-of-sale and e-commerce serviced tailored for the reuse center industry. Formerly called PlanetRestore, the InvenQuery technology platform will power PlanetReuse Marketplace, an online store to debut later this year, that will help reuse centers make reclaimed and surplus building materials instantly accessible to homeowners nationwide.

Currently, reuse centers sell less than 5% of their inventory online. If you are a reuse center interested in learning more about InvenQuery and PlanetReuse Marketplace (coming soon), please contact us at
