Circularity, Carbon, and Customers

March 24, 2022

Learn a little bit about the path that led our Co-Founder Jeff Denby to start The Renewal Workshop when you listen to this podcast on Spotify or Google.  Learn even more about how a shift to circularity is crucial to reduce carbon and the role of The Renewal Workshop in that endeavor.

A couple of highlights to listen for as you check out this episode of B-Talks.

First, Jeff points out that the greatest carbon impact comes from the manufacturing of new things. He also notes that if we keep making new things every year, we will never be able to make a real difference in climate change.

Second, Jeff goes on to say that renewal, reuse, resale provide a path for apparel and textile brands to make revenue without having to create something from new materials. He knows that customers, like you, are demanding renewed products because you realize the environmental value and want brands to be responsible for the whole life of their products.

Thanks for being a Renewed customer and opting to give a product--and the resources it took to make it--a second life instead of buying something new.
