Trade in your old Livid for 150 NOK in store credit, and we will give it new life. Reduce waste.
The clothing industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. The problem has accelerated tremendously with the rise of fast fashion, as cheaper products with a short lifespan has led to a massive increase in consumption of clothes. The consumption of water and CO2 emissions are the same for any similar type of jeans produced, however the actual impact on the environment is lower for high quality garments, as they will last much longer.
As part of the solution, we believe in producing as little as possible, using the highest quality fabrics and constructions that we can find. In addition we offer free first-time repairs on all of our products, to help you make the jeans last as long as possible.
However, it will come a time where the jeans is no longer of use to you. Maybe it is so worn down that you cannot use it any more, or perhaps it no longer fits you. Or perhaps you for whatever reason are no longer using the garment. Then what?
There could be a lot of life left in a pair of jeans that no longer fits you. And even if it can no longer be used for wear, it can be reused for other functions. As a producer, we feel a responsibility to ensure a sustainable end-of-life for our products.
We would like to introduce you to Livid SAVED. If you give us your old pair of Livid jeans, in any condition, we will give you 150 NOK in store credit. Our only condition is that you wash the garment prior to delivery.
What will you do with my old jeans?
Depending on the condition of your jeans, your jeans will be used in the following manner:
1. If the jeans is still in good shape, we will fix it in-house in Trondheim and sell it at a highly reduced rate in the vintage departments of our brand stores.
2. If the condition of the jeans makes it difficult to re-sell, no problem! We will use the fabrics to patch up other pairs of Livids coming in for repair service.
3. Jeans that are in too bad shape to be used even for repairs, as well as all leftover denim from our repair department, will be delivered to Fretex. The fabric will be reused in numerous different ways, for example to make isolation mats or assembly lines. Of the textiles received by Fretex, only 2% is used for energy recovery.
