12.7 MILLION TONS OF TEXTILES END UP IN THE LANDFILL EVERY YEAR.
It’s crazy that a broken zipper sends clothes to a landfill. At The Renewal Workshop factory, they are making sure that never happens again. They have partnered with the world’s best-loved apparel brands to bring their big piles to their factory where they’re refurbished to become Renewed Apparel.
The Renewal Workshop transforms slightly damaged, excess and returned apparel from top brands such as: Prana, Toad & Co, Mountain Khakis, Ibex, and Indigenous. They renew everything from outerwear to casual shirts to pants to dresses. Each item is inspected, graded, repaired (if necessary), cleaned, and labeled. Every piece of Renewed Apparel is one-of-kind and always certified to the quality standards of the original brand.
