We’re on a mission to solve the world’s waste problem.

Undoing centuries of industrialized processes and ways of thinking is no easy task. But we’re up for the challenge.

We help brands unlock the potential in their untapped products

Most brands overlook the value of returned and damaged goods. Debrand unlocks the potential in the products that come back—or never left the distribution center to begin with.

By establishing next-life logistics processes for products that brands no longer have use for, we help recapture value and give their goods a second—or third—lease on life.

Find the worth in waste

We got our start in our hometown of Vancouver, showing local companies a better solution for their excess branded gear than the landfill—or “brandfill,” as we called it. Then we kept thinking bigger—what if we could shift mindsets so every brand sees waste as an opportunity instead of a burden?

Our commitment to challenging conventional ways of thinking and asking big questions resonated with leading brands across North America. Today, we support over 50 household names, along with emerging brands, through our approach to next-life logistics.

Vetted and time-tested partnerships

With consumer expectations and regulations changing by the minute, we put you on the right track. We’ve done the heavy lifting, building trusted relationships with industry leaders in apparel and footwear resale, donation, repair, recycling and responsible disposal, and vetting them through years of trials, pilots and close partnership.
