British outdoor brand, Berghaus, has announced the relaunch of its free repairs program as part of its commitment to promoting repairs over replacements. The program was first introduced 56 years ago.

Repairhaus team on the Berghaus website states that even the most durable clothes may be worn down by nature. Therefore, when the weather is at its worst, they perform at their peak.
Berghaus points out that although the repair service is free, customers are expected to pay for shipping their property to them. Within 21 days of receiving the item, the staff strives to deliver it back to the consumer.

They consider all aspects of a kit's life cycle, including its strategy, product development, production, packaging, and end-of-life alternatives. They also work with Dirtbags Climbing, who repurpose kit into new and different products.
