On June 1, 2017, this was our Instagram post.
We meant it. We've stayed in. Every single day. Despite rollbacks of regulations, reduced resources and leadership at the highest levels denying the Climate Crisis, our team has not wavered from our core purpose:
The Renewal Workshop is the leading provider of circular solutions for apparel and textile brands. We are organized around the idea that businesses have multiple responsibilities for generating positive, lasting value.
We are here to solve hard problems and to create circular systems that make things better. Our work is to do what is good and right for people and for the planet.
We reduce waste and restore value. We create jobs and treat people fairly. We serve customers kindly and work with partners cooperatively. We consciously choose to act with love in what we do and how we do it.
On January 20, 2021, we saw the US rejoin the global effort to address the Climate Crisis. We watched as scientists took on leadership roles and policy teams were tasked with accountability for delivering programs with measurable results. We witnessed the first steps of a strategy to serve the common and shared public good. And, we celebrated the choice to stay in.
