Do you have a closet full of clothes you love but don’t wear anymore? Eileen Fisher Renew is here to help. We take your gently-worn Eileen Fisher clothes and give them new life. Not only does this reduce waste and help the environment, but it also saves you money.
Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Shop Secondhand First
The first step to reducing your fashion footprint is to shop secondhand first. When you buy secondhand, you extend the life of a garment that already exists instead of buying something new.
That means one less garment produced, which reduces pollution and conserves resources like water and land.
Eileen Fisher Renew location or ship your clothes directly to us. We’ll sort through your items and determine which ones are in good enough condition to be resold.
The clothes that don’t meet our standards will be recycled or upcycled into other products, like home goods or jewelry.
Step 2: Extend the Life of Your Clothes
Once you have your Secondhand wardrobe sorted, it’s time to focus on the clothes you already have. Extending the life of your clothes means fewer garments ending up in a landfill.
In fact, making your clothes last just one extra year can reduce their carbon, water, and waste footprints by 20-30%. Here are a few tips to help you get started:
-Read the care label and follow the instructions carefully. Washing your clothes less often can preserve both their shape and color. When you do wash them, use cold water and consider hanging them to dry instead of using a dryer.
-Be careful with zippers, buttons, and other fasteners. Opening and closing them carefully will help prevent them from breaking prematurely.
-Repair tears or holes as soon as they appear using a needle and thread or a patch. A small repair today can save you from having to replace the garment entirely tomorrow.
Eileen Fisher Renews Conclusion:
Eileen Fisher Renew is changing the way we think about fashion—one garment at a time. By shopping secondhand and taking care of our clothes, we can reduce our fashion footprint while still looking good (and feeling confident).
It’s a win-win for everyone involved!
Thanks for reading and we hope this has inspired you to shop secondhand first the next time you’re looking for something new to wear!
