The North Face Renewed Program Turns Old Jackets into New Styles

The North Face jackets often last for quite a long time but The North Face Renewed program ensures that even defective or returned jackets have a chance at another life. The program encompasses a variety of The North Face products and ranges from jackets to pants. The items may differ in style but their composition remains the same, as each piece featured in The North Race Renewed program is made using discarded The North Face products.

The program is still in its pilot phase and will source its materials from The North Face's internal stock. This can include items that did not make the cut in terms of quality or were returned under the company's quality guarantee. Eventually, The North Face hopes that its new program will be able to collect clothing from all customers, as the idea of recycling materials plays into the company's plan for a circular business model that keeps clothes out of the trash.
