Company Description

Refiberd is on a mission to create a circular economy for the fashion industry. Every year, 93 billion tons of textile waste are generated, and less than 1% of that is recycled into new clothing. Refiberd is tackling the textile waste crisis with our novel machine learning and spectroscopy-based sorting system that processes and sorts textile waste for different recycling streams. By being able to accurately sort textile waste, we can maximize the amount of textile waste that gets recycled and unlock circularity for the fashion industry.

Our workplace culture at Refiberd is supportive, collaborative, and mission-driven. We prioritize work-life balance, flexibility, and autonomy, and we value diverse perspectives and backgrounds. Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in everything we do, and we're not afraid to tackle tough challenges like climate change and fast fashion.
