Momta: An App for Sustainable Buying and Selling of Used Clothes
The usage of mobile apps in Nepal has been steadily increasing in recent years, driven by the growing availability of affordable smartphones and the expanding reach of mobile networks. According to a report by We Are Social and Hootsuite, as of January 2022, there were 24 million internet users in Nepal, representing 78% of the population. Of these internet users, 98% access the internet via mobile devices. With the idea of reaching more people and giving the power of decision making on hands we built Momta App.
The Momta app is designed to connect individuals with their clothing needs. With just a few clicks, users can buy, sell, or donate clothes. Giving a second life to used clothing not only helps those in need but is also beneficial for the environment.
There are several benefits to selling and buying used clothes through our app, including:
Convenience: It provides a convenient way to sell and buy used clothes from the comfort of your home. You can easily browse through various items, compare prices, and make purchases with just a few clicks.
Cost-effective: Selling and buying used clothes through our app can be cost-effective as you can often find items at a fraction of the price of new clothes. This is especially beneficial for those on a tight budget or looking to save money.
Eco-friendly: Buying and selling used clothes through us can also be an eco-friendly option as it promotes the reuse and recycling of clothes. This helps reduce the environmental impact of textile waste and promotes sustainable living.
Access to a larger market: It can help sellers reach a larger market for their used clothes, which can increase their chances of finding a buyer. On the other hand, buyers can access a wider range of items from different sellers, increasing their chances of finding the specific item they are looking for.
Social benefits: It can also create a sense of community among buyers and sellers, who can interact with each other through messaging, reviews, and ratings. This can create a supportive and collaborative environment that promotes the sharing and reuse of clothes.
Features, such as direct chat with the seller help us in clarifying details, negotiating prices, building trust, seeing the item in person and getting additional information. We respect people’s privacy so the conversation here is made private. The app has an integrated way to measure carbon footprints.
Measuring the carbon footprint of clothing can encourage sustainable consumption, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote transparency in the fashion industry, and support sustainable brands. This helps to reduce the environmental impact of the fashion industry.
