Our Story

Welcome!

The Renewal Workshop

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.

The Renewal System is the process we developed to bridge gaps, connect systems, and mobilize leadership to make  existing linear manufacturing practices circular. At its heart, it is a collaborative process that relies on progressive brand partners committed to sustainability.

Brands and retailers lack systems to recover value from unsellable inventory. For products that have been produced but cannot be sold, the creative, physical, natural and financial resources invested in them are lost. This leads to massive waste problems with negative environmental impacts, significant financial losses for brands and missed opportunities for consumers.

The Renewal System takes discarded apparel and textiles and turns them into Renewed products, upcycled materials or recycling feedstock. Data is collected on everything that flows through the system and is given back to our brand partners to help them improve the production and design of future products. It is a zero waste system that recovers the full value out of what has already been created as a way of serving customers, partners and planet.

We built our first factory in Cascade Locks, Oregon in 2016. We recently opened our second factory in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in 2019.

Core 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 foundation of all of our decisions.
