Global Value Commerce expands focus on proactive sustainability by launching Second Chance

Date is TBD

(RALEIGH, N.C.) – Global Value Commerce, Inc. (GVC) – owner and operator of North America’s largest re-commerce platform for new and pre-owned golf gear – is pleased to announce their increased commitment to sustainable practices by keeping greater quantities of golf gear in play with the launch of the Second Chance section of their website.

GlobalGolf has been giving golf clubs a second chance since 2000 and is now excited to expand into different product categories. Always an industry leader, the GlobalGolf Second Chance program builds upon its commitment of environmental sustainability through the reduction of wasted materials. Additional product categories in the Second Chance program now include apparel and footwear, golf bags, accessories and tech products. Several new vendors have been added to the GlobalGolf Second Chance program, allowing the Company to make a greater impact on the environment and offer even greater opportunities for the consumer. These category and vendor additions increase the recirculation of golf gear into the market and not into landfills.

Second Chance is the GlobalGolf platform where consumers can find all of the Company’s available inventories of Second Chance golf gear. These products will give the consumer access to gently used inventory, sales representative samples, customer returns and more – all available at an exceptional value. 

“Before any Second Chance items hit our virtual shelves, each product goes through our extensive examination, cleaning and reconditioning processes which provides high-quality golf gear a second chance at play for the next round of players - at a great price,” noted Ed Byman, GVC CEO.

Second Chance allows GlobalGolf to be fully engaged in the circular economy by annually buying, repairing and reselling thousands of previously played and worn golf products to be both lighter on the planet and lighter on the consumer’s wallet!
