REI of Bend has made the commitment to repair rather than replace items returned under warranty in an effort to keep clothing, gear, and petrochemicals out of the landfill. We are excited to be their repair facility of choice and their recommendation for repairs not covered under warranty. REI of Bend also serves as a pick-up/drop-off location for Rugged Thread customers. During REI Garage Sales, Rugged Thread sets up a mobile pop-up shop to offer REI members completely free repairs on Garage Sale items. Check out our event calendar for the next one.
Mosko Moto knows that backcountry moto is brutally hard on gear. From hot desert sun to horizontal rain; icy, snow-covered passes and flying rocks. They’ve designed their quality gear with this in mind, and know that buckles break, bags get road burned, and zippers get mangled–but that doesn’t mean it’s time for a new one. They are committed to keeping gear in use longer and out of the landfill by partnering with us to repair rather than replace items under warranty.
We are excited to team up with TruNorthwest Exchange–an outdoor clothing and gear consignment shop–to offer their consignors a way to easily fix broken items that would otherwise be thrown away. They are committed to reducing the 16 million tons of annual clothing waste by finding TRU used outdoor gear (Timeless, Renewed, Useful) and getting it in the right hands for outdoor use rather than the landfill.
