Renewal Workshop tackles America's problem with textile waste in a new way.

On our minds is the Renewal Workshop, a new force tackling America’s problem with textile waste in fresh ways. Rather than recycling or reselling, the initiative take the role of a large-scale tailor, collecting items from retailers that were damaged at manufacturing stage or returned by consumers – fixing them – and putting them up for sale online. By taking care of the large amounts of unfit garments with faults that are easy to repair (such as broken zips, ripped linings or slight stains), the workshop hopes to reduce the amount of textile waste headed for landfill whilst running a viable business. Renewal also offers reports to the partner brands on their apparels’ most common faults to help them address waste at manufacturing stage. Read more here.
