Propelling the apparel industry’s sustainable future

We partner with world-class apparel brands and trusted solution partners to build scalable systems of sustainability. Learn more about some of the impactful projects we’ve worked on.

Eastman

We partnered with our American recycling partner, Eastman, to reach valuable milestones for our industry through this innovative pilot project. 5,000 pounds of pre- and post-consumer apparel waste were collected from global fashion brands for recycling to create new Naia™ Renew fibers. These fibers are derived from a closed-loop recycling process and used to create new apparel that is certified biodegradable and compostable.

This project showcases the value of sortation and irritant removal for Eastman’s cutting-edge molecular recycling technology. Through our iterative collaboration, we have achieved new milestones for circular textile recycling solutions at scale.

Everlane

We worked closely with Everlane on a two-year-long project to assess and sort a backlog of over 112,000 damaged products using our Allocation Engine—diverting the products from landfill. Through resale and donation channels, we’ve helped Everlane maximize product value recovery, increase warehouse capacity and give their returns a new lease on life. Learnings from the pilot have helped Everlane revamp their returns quality control process to minimize the number of returns that are damaged out of sellable inventory.

lululemon

Through our longstanding partnership with lululemon, we’ve helped establish next-life solutions for their suite of products. We work with our trusted network of solution partners to recycle apparel into product insulation, stuffing for mattresses, furniture and sporting equipment; to turn damaged and excess footwear into stable comfort pillows and blow-in insulation; and to transform yoga mats into equestrian footing. By partnering with lululemon to spearhead textile-to-textile recycling technologies and run circularity trials, we’re working together to advance the apparel industry’s circular ecosystem.

Victoria’s Secret

We helped Victoria’s Secret pilot a take-back program in 14 stores across the US—giving their customers a simple way to return used products, so we can recapture the materials. Through this pilot, we tested donation, textile recycling and waste-to-energy channels to show Victoria’s Secret the different paths to developing a circular product model. As a result, we successfully collected, sorted and pre-processed returns and allocated them to their highest value channels and diverted textile waste from landfills.
