OUR STORY



Welcome to The Renewal Workshop.

We are a new kind of apparel company that believes a business has multiple responsibilities for generating positive, lasting value.

We started our company to solve hard problems and to create new systems that do what is good and right for people and for the planet. We’ve been working day and night over the past year to build a new factory in the US where tons of clothing and textiles are being diverted from landfill and made into renewed apparel, upcycling materials, and recyclable feedstock.

We’re doing this because we don’t believe in throwing things away that aren’t really trash.

We don’t believe in living like everything and everyone around us is disposable, and leaving our planet damaged and depleted because changing the system is too big of a challenge.

It’s not. We’re doing it every day. We’re recovering value and reducing waste. We’re creating jobs and treating people fairly. We’re serving our customers kindly and working with partners cooperatively.

That’s our system. We believe in doing things differently. If you like the way that sounds, we hope you’ll join us.

OUR VALUES


Our values guide every aspect of how we work. These aren’t pretty words that hang on the wall of a conference room, they are the foundations of all of our decisions.
SELF
DETER
MINATION

We are confident in our beliefs, in our ideas and in our vision. We lead in our own style and set our own course in how we treat people, the environment, the brand and the business. We hold most strongly to who we are and what we are trying to accomplish.

Service

We see service as a way of being and behaving. We think of others first, from our brand partners to our customers to the environment. We exist to create a better world.

Systems
Thinking

Systems expertise is in our DNA. We use processes and systems as tools to free ourselves from inefficiency and to solve big problems. Good systems do not restrict innovation and collaboration. They cultivate them.

Sensibility

We look for simple solutions to complex problems.

We value common sense.

We believe in the wisdom of nature, looking to evolve, adapt, and learn constantly from our changing environment.

We manage our time by being present to what is here right now, remaining in the moment, and giving ourselves time to absorb and process. We allow things to happen in flow.

Light

We encourage each other to follow whatever personal path brings us joy. We dwell in the positive and live lightly without being dragged down by burden. We recognize that living true to oneself is freedom.
