New Zealand-based outdoor apparel brand Kathmandu has partnered with The Renewal Workshop, a leading provider of circular solutions, to kickstart a circular mapping project for providing renewal and recommerce programmes to its customers in the future. The brand has also urged fashion businesses across Australasia to join them in reducing textile waste.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with The Renewal Workshop to work together to do our part in reducing textile waste, and to be the first of hopefully many businesses in Australia and New Zealand to work towards circularity. This partnership is a significant first step towards achieving our 2025 sustainability goal of integrating circular economy principals into our business operations,” said Reuben Casey, CEO, Kathmandu, according to Australian media reports.
“As a business who relies on collaborative and progressive brand partners as well as a strong shared commitment to sustainability, we can’t think of a better partner than Kathmandu to explore the potential of circular practices through our Circular Mapping process,” said Nicole Bassett, co-founder, The Renewal Workshop.
The partnership is a first of its kind formed to address textile waste in the Australasia region.
