Arc’teryx Equipment, a global design, apparel and equipment company, has launched a new program ReBird, which will reuse and upcycle existing clothing into new clothes.
Their upcycled and repurposed produced take materials saved from waste, and worn-beyond-optimum-function gear, to give them new life, for bags, backpacks, jackets, shirts and more. Among those include the Arc'teryx's upcycled Stowe Windshell, made from end-of-the-roll materials reclaimed from the production process, along with the brand’s first-ever upcycled products crafted from post-consumer materials, the Upcycled Tote and Pouch.
They are also allowing costumers to trade in items they’re no longer wearing, in exchange for a gift card, and products are repaired, cleaned and listed on the Arc’teryx resale website.
This is all part of the company’s goal of reducing their greenhouse gas emissions by 65% by 2030.
