14 million tons of apparel goes to landfill each year. - The Renewal Workshop
A new model for brand apparel
With all the creativity and resource embedded in creating textiles, why is the ost common solution for defective apparel to landfill them?
Now there's another solution from our newest partner The Renewal Workshop! Seeking to reduce textile waste in the apparel sector, The Renewal Workshop will clean and restore apparel in a new factory in Cascade Locks, Oregon. #RenewedinAmerica
Alongside The Renewal Workshop, we're hoping to change what customers know about apparel care and garment life. This is the beginning of that effort. Want to hear more perspective on the financial implications of apparel cleanliness? Read our past blog on Building a Profitable Circular Economy.

These ingredients have built trust in the cleaning power of TERSUS.
