According to clothing and gear manufacturer The North Face, “Every year 85% of textiles produced ends up in landfills. Clothing. Shoes. Gear. Wasted, without a second thought. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can shift from a traditional, linear model to a circular model where people share, resell, repair and recycle clothing to keep them out of landfills and in the value chain. A world where people can have more experiences with less waste.”
Their solution? Launching a new program that takes in gently used clothing, professionally cleaning and repairing it, then offering it for resale at reduced prices.
