Turning Fashion Surplus into Fashion Forward
A NFL Green Initiative
Addressing an inventory challenge with a solutions-based model
It’s inevitable. Change happens. And with change, comes consequences. Albeit for the good, the Washington Redskins decision to act to advance social justice and equality generated a significant amount of obsolete inventory. This inventory, likely destined for landfills or incinerators, posed a harmful threat to the environment.
In partnership with the NFL, Refried put its upcycle design and manufacturing methods to work to transform the obsolete goods into newly rebranded apparel and accessories. With these genuine upcycled articles, sports fans can bring home unique and sustainable products that mark a historic event and benefit the environment.
