The Impact of Home Goods Renewal

March 24, 2022

We are in this business to make an impact. We want to make an impact on a traditionally linear industry—the apparel and textile industry—and lead brands into a circular economy.  We do this because we know that Renewal and Circularity have a positive impact on the health of our planet and the people who live here. We want you to know that too. The Renewal Workshop tracks and reports our Impact Data comprehensively and transparently which allows us to provide insights never before available on products lifetime value and impact.

Including home goods textiles in the products we renew allows us to make a bigger impact. For example, our partnership with Pottery Barn has allowed us to save 1.4 million liters of water! 

During Step 6 of the Renewal process, each product is scored so the positive environmental impact of buying renewed can be tracked. Our goal is to divert 1M pounds of apparel and textiles from landfill. Despite all the challenges of 2020, we're still on track to achieve this goal. Check out our About page for the most recent Impact numbers. Buying Renewed and participating in Take Back opportunities adds up over time and when our individual actions are added up!
