The Renewal Sensibility is our formula for reducing waste by recovering value. We create a multiplier effect with every garment or piece of textile that is diverted from landfill by making it into something new – renewed apparel, upcycling material, or recycling fiber. Our Sensibility is to recoup the original creative, financial, material, natural resource, and labor investments that went into making something in the first place.
The Renewal Sensibility is captured in the Impact Score we assign to each item. This is a sophisticated value equation that blends the number of pounds of waste diverted from landfill with energy, water, toxic chemical, and greenhouse gas savings. These savings are combined with the positive impacts of money invested into the circular economy from sales and number of living wage jobs created to produce an inclusive Impact Score for every item in the Renewal System.
The Renewal Sensibility is our super efficient formula for making the world and better and more livable place.
