Saving the planet, one jacket at a time.

The North Face is collaborating with The Renewal Project for an upcycled clothing collection, titled The North Face Renewed. 

The project involves repairing defective or returned garments and selling them at a discounted price. For some items, it will mean replacing a zipper or button, for others – stitching up a tear.

Pants, shirts and layering pieces join the outerwear pieces that will be saved from landfill as a result of the initiative. Expect items to be inspected and professionally cleaned, then quality-checked – ahead of your next adventure.

As the program is in its early stages, shipping is currently only available in the US.
