Our mission is to make retail more sustainable by eliminating all waste from returns.

Every year, more than 15% of retail goods are returned or simply never sell. This creates tons of unnecessary waste and costs retailers billions of dollars. Optoro offers a returns optimization software platform that helps retailers find the next best home for their returned and excess inventory through machine learning and data driven decision making.

Our technology routes those goods from the first touch, whether that’s a retail store, warehouse, or online return, and connects them to their next best use – be it an individual, business or charity. This means greater value for everyone involved, less waste and a healthier planet. Simply put, we’re building the future of sustainable commerce.


Our Story

Optoro is disrupting the retail industry by keeping returns in the economy, instead of in a landfill.

Our company was founded by two scrappy entrepreneurs with an ambitious idea. Since then, we have evolved from a small storefront to a three-office, two-warehouse company. To this day, we are driven by a passionate leadership team committed to that vision—making retail more sustainable by eliminating waste from returns. You can learn more about our Code of Conduct here.
