TNF to trial the sale of refurbished products

Outdoor brand The North Face (TNF) has announced the launch of a pilot programme which will see it sell refurbished apparel online in an effort to extend the life of its products.

The refurbished products will be sold as part of the brand’s new ‘Renewed’ collection. It is targeted at consumers “who want to access affordable gear and reduce their environmental impact”. 

All the items in the collection are sourced from returned, defective or damaged apparel. They have been inspected, cleaned and refurbished to The North Face’s quality and performance standards. 

James Rogers, director of sustainability for The North Face, said: "As we address the impacts of our products over their entire lifecycle, re-commerce is an important next step in opening new markets and minimising our impact on the planet. We are furthering our sustainability goals without sacrificing durability or technical standards. Ultimately, as we work to scale Renewed, we will be proving a larger, circular model for the industry."

During the pilot phase of the project, the ‘Renewed’ collection will only be offered online. The products are available through a dedicated website
