Apparel brands and retailers have long been accumulating and throwing out huge quantities of excess inventory. This product comes from returns, warranty, manufacturing defects, over-production, retail and shipping damage, and more. Much of this product is in near-perfect condition or mildly defective. The Renewal Workshop, founded in 2015, refurbishes excess and end-of-life apparel from clothing brands. Each collected garment is inspected, graded, repaired (if necessary), cleaned, and labeled. Renewed clothing is then sold either back to brands or direct-to-consumer. Clothing that cannot be renewed is upcycled. All clothing is successfully diverted from the landfill.
