The Afterlife is a way for our community to ensure that their old outerwear isn't tossed in the landfill, and instead make sure that their used gear is put to good use.Here you can:• Trade in your used gear for store credit• Donate your lightly used gear• Recycle old garments for up-cycling
*The Afterlife is currently only open to TREW outerwear (jackets, pants, bibs) products at this time.
Need a size up? Want that new color? Ready to try out the newest bib design? Trade in your old gear for TREW store credit. Easy, peasy.
If you have a qualifying TREW outerwear product that is still functional (zippers work, no rips or tears, little to no signs of wearing or delamination, etc.), you are eligible to send it to us in return for TREW store credit. You are responsible for the cost of shipping your item(s) to us.
Items that are no longer wearable and are thoroughly thrashed will not qualify for store credit, but you can still recycle these items to ensure that they don't end up in the landfill and instead get put to good use.
Send in your still-functioning gear and we’ll donate it to a good cause - and give you $50 in TREW store credit!
If you have a qualifying TREW outerwear product that is still in working/wearable condition, you are eligible to send it in to us as a donation. You are responsible for the cost of shipping your item(s) to us. All gear that is donated through The Afterlife will be sent to Oregon non-profit, Snowdays Foundation.
For items to qualify for donations through The Afterlife, they must be in wearable condition. This means that your garment must not have any defective or broken zippers, large tears or rips, etc. We will cover the cost of repairing small tears and blemishes before donation. If your item is not in wearable condition, then consider recycling it!
Send us your old, trashed TREW gear to be recycled - shipping's on us!*
Have some old outerwear hanging in the gear closet that is ready to be retired? Well, good news - we want it and we will send you a prepaid shipping label to send it to us. Just because an item no longer meets the demands of skiing or snowboarding doesn't mean it doesn't have more life in it!
Whether it be recycling the materials or zippers for warranty gear repairs, or making up-cycled bags, packs, and assorted items out of the old material with the help of Truce Designs and other independent US makers, we can assure you that we will find a great way to make your old gear go a long way.
*Free shipping will only be provided to folks in the US. Shipping for international recycling will be at the expense of the customer.
To qualify for store credit on any of your gear trade-ins or donations, you need to be a member of the TREW Alpine Club. Don't worry, it's free.
From marketing samples and lightly-used, repaired trade-ins to one-of-a-kind upcycled items made from recycled TREW items, there's bound to be something in the Afterlife Store that will ft your fancy.
