Every product we make is thoughtfully designed with the outdoors in mind. When we create our high-quality products to last a long time, we’re not just thinking of how much longer customers can enjoy them, but also the lower impact they will have on the environment.
Our Products Last Longer for Less Waste
For us, sustainability starts at the drawing table. Every product we make is designed to be durable, not disposable. Because when products last longer they don’t need to be replaced as often, using fewer natural resources and reducing waste. That’s better for the planet. And since longer-lasting products mean our customers can keep enjoying them year after year, it’s better for them too.
One of the most important things we can do to increase sustainability and minimize environmental impact starts with our products and the companies we partner with. Working with the world’s most respected and trusted industry leaders in sustainable practices and using responsibly sourced materials reduces waste and pollution, saves energy and water, and reduces chemicals and dyes. With these guidelines and standards in place you can feel good about using our products and we can feel good about making them.
Here are some of our key partners in sustainability:
Using recycled fabrics not only saves energy and water, but also allows us to make use of materials that would otherwise end up in the trash. For example, switching to recycled polyester fleece in our Mountain Classic Fleece outerwear has helped keep nearly 40 million plastic bottles out of landfills since 2008.
