B-Stock was built on the idea that technology could revolutionize how organizations handle their obsolete inventory, including how to create a sustainable process for the last mile of the reverse supply chain: liquidation.
By encouraging retailers and manufacturers to ditch traditional methods, including landfilling excess, obsolete, and returned product, and replacing that with a sustainable remarketing solution for inventory across all condition codes including historically hard-to-sell merchandise like salvage or damaged , B-Stock has enabled the recycling, repurposing, reuse or resale of almost million items.

While UPcycle has started with only one brand partner, sustainable apparel company Reformation, thredUP plans to announce a second partner on Black Friday and establish 10 new partnerships next year. The apparel brands encourage customers to return used goods in exchange for store credit.
Yerdle then repairs and refurbishes those goods so that the apparel companies can sell them again as refurbished under their own brands in their own online stores all managed by Yerdle , complete with warranties, customer service and return policies.
The Renewal Workshop : With an approach akin to Yerdle's, the company offers retailers a fully outsourced recommerce service, managing the reverse logistics, repair, cleaning, quality assurance and resale of used clothing to companies such as the North Face, prAna and icebreaker. Apparel brands pay a processing fee at a rate comparable to apparel waste management and can sell "renewed" clothing in their stores or on the Renewal Workshop's website under a revenue-sharing agreement.

About this book
USD Sign in to Purchase Instantly. Overview This book highlights the concept and applications of Remanufactured Fashion. The first book on this subject, it covers reverse logistics, exemplars, and case studies of remanufactured fashion design. Textile waste is a major issue for all countries, and converting that waste into useful products offers a sensible solution. Remanufactured Fashion is one such sustainable waste management strategy. It involves the conversion of discarded garments into useful retail products, without which they would be dumped at landfills, posing a number of environmental issues.
The application and use of discarded clothing in remanufacturing processes could greatly reduce the percentage of clothing waste and mitigate related waste management issues , while also contributing to resource conservation. There has been scant research investigating what is actually involved in the fashion remanufacturing process and how the process could be up-scaled to the mass market in order to achieve greater environmental gains. This book addresses that gap in the literature and examines all aspects pertaining to the concept and applications of Remanufactured Fashion.
