Who We Are

Our world has a waste problem and we’re tackling it head-on. Through next-life logistics for apparel and footwear, we help one of the most planet-damaging industries course correct. We help brands extend the life of their products — and the precious resources used to make them — as many times and ways possible.


We work with transformative companies such as Lululemon, Canada Goose, IKEA Canada, and Everlane. We help strengthen their whole supply chain by finding next-life solutions for their surplus inventory, then implementing the most mutually beneficial path for their business and the planet. Our tech-enabled sortation process and comprehensive network of solution partners in re-commerce, repair, recycling, and responsible disposal work together to create scalable solutions of sustainability that prevent waste problems before they happen.


Since 2009, Debrand has been dedicated to keeping apparel and footwear out of international landfills and into domestic recovery systems. We turn supply chain challenges into clear-cut, brand-aligned solutions that are better for businesses and the planet’s health. Our goal is to propel the apparel industry’s sustainable future by implementing a circular system to help textiles live on and on (and on).
