environmental impact

This jacket is made with recycled nylon. Ecoalf share that the manufacturing process of recycled nylon produces 28% less CO2 than conventional nylon. Recycling nylon also keeps this slow to break down material out of landfills.

The filling of this jacket is made with 100% recycled polyester. This recycled polyester is made from recycled PET which could be sourced from plastic bottles or fabric scraps. Using recycled materials reduces waste sent to landfill and avoids the need for virgin resources to be consumed.

Ecoalf fabrics are fluorocarbon (PFC) free. Fluorocarbons are long chain chemicals that effectively repel water but can slowly leach into the environment where they take a very long time to break down.
