The Renewal Workshop: LAUNCHING THE RENEWAL MOVEMENT. ENDING WASTE IN THE APPAREL INDUSTRY
ESTABLISHED 2016 – CO-FOUNDER Nicole Bassett and Jeff Denby – EMPLOYEES 8 – LOCATED IN Cascade Locks, Oregon
The Story of The Renewal Workshop:
We’re going to let you in on a little secret. Not everything that gets thrown away is trash. In fact, a lot of what ends up in landfill looks like this:
Instead of becoming your favorite weekend shirt or a puffy jacket keeping you warm as you climb to the top of Mt Hood, these clothes and millions like them, are sent to landfills.
We’re fixing all of this needlessly discarded apparel and creating a brand new product category called:
This is your first chance to get your hands on it!
The Renewal Workshop transforms slightly damaged, excess and returned apparel from top brands such as:
We renew everything from outerwear to casual shirts to pants to dresses. We receive these items in bulk from our brand partners. 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.
We love this planet. We also love the people who work hard to design and make great things. Little problems like broken zippers and missing buttons should not destroy all the natural resources, time, labor, creativity and care that go into making something. Good clothing should be part of our lives, not our landfill.
With a single click, you can be part of converting the mountains of discarded items trashing our planet into that perfect outfit for your next yoga class, ski trip, family hike, or date night.
Do something good. Get something great.
Renewed in America
The Renewal Workshop isn’t just renewing clothing. We’re also restoring jobs, specifically, new sustainable manufacturing jobs here in the US. All of our great perks are made in our new factory, in a town called Cascade Locks, Oregon. This is the first of many renewal facilities that we are planning to open across the country.
