There is plenty of data which tells us that consumers will support a company based on its commitment to sustainability. Conscientious consumers like you are taking action by changing personal habits, supporting policy changes, and with the power of their pocketbooks. But consumers also want companies to take action and share in that responsibility.
The Renewal Workshop was created to help apparel and textile brands become circular so they could take responsibility for the whole lifecycle of their products. TRW started by taking unsellable clothing from our brand partners and now we are working with brands to help them take clothing back from consumers —we call this Circle Back.
Circle Back programs work differently for different brands. Sometimes, we'll do it as part of an event or in a retail store. Others, like Eagle Creek, are making it available online all the time. Circle Back is your chance to participate in keeping clothing and textiles you're “finished” with out of landfill. If you're doing any closet cleaning this week, don't forget that we'll Circle Back items from our brand parters if you send them to us, you can find more details here.
