Veilance Takes A Stance On Sustainability With A Used Gear Program

The outdoor and technical outerwear industries have been taking drastic steps to reduce their manufacturing footprint, as of late. Veilance, the urban-focused element of its larger parent company, Arc’teryx, has already formulated a handful of ways to contribute to the movement, and now, they’ve revealed their latest program, allowing wearers to “recycle” their used garments for an attractive incentive.

According to Veilance, the Re-System Used Gear Program is the first of its kind within the luxury performance category. Not only does it place the company on the right track to meet its goal — the reduction of factory greenhouse gas emissions by 65% by 2030 — but it also places an emphasis on revitalization and reuse, giving buyers (and donators) the opportunity to stay within the Veilance ecosystem. When a previous owner returns his or her lightly-used garment to the brand, the example is thoroughly inspected, cleaned, and repaired, before being listed at up to 60% off the original retail price. In turn, the donator will receive a 20% store credit (based on the item’s retail value), allowing them to purchase another sleek clothing item for future use. Head to Veilance’s website to learn more about the Re-System program’s available options.
