If you’ve been on this journey with us for a while, you know we’re in the business of change. Driving the transition from linear to circular in the apparel and textile industry is the reason we exist. To do that, we have to change every aspect of how business is done and all the systems that support it - especially the technology. You wouldn't believe how much of the linear system is preserved and how much waste is created simply because the technology that we run manufacturing and warehouse management on isn't flexible and doesn't work for circular practices.
Over the last few months, we've been working with a technical partner that wants to change this. Netsuite is stepping up to provide new technology to move circular business forward. We're about to hit a major milestone this week as we move our operations to System 2.0. The team has been working feverishly to do the work in a way that minimizes disruption to our customers but there might be a brief period of time where the collection isn't available next week. Thankfully, even if that happens, you'll still be able to catch up on the latest in living the Renewable Life through the blog or you can visit our partners' sites to see what good they are up to and you can always shop Renewed at The North Face Renewed. We're so grateful to Netsuite, our partners at Folio3, our brand partners and you - our beloved customer family - for supporting the change that drives all that we do - making apparel and textiles circular to serve people and planet better.
