We’re reducing the amount of plastic packing we use.
Packaging is vital to protecting your kit in transit. We’re cutting down how much we use. Only using what’s essential.
Re-Using “Single Use” Plastics
Research from the European Outdoor Group (EOG) shows that plastic polybags have the least environmental impact for protective packaging for outdoor products. Even compared to bio-degradable and paper options.
The biggest issue with plastic is its disposal.
Municipal recycling streams cannot, generally, process thin film polybags – instead, they get burnt, landfilled, or exported.
We’re working with the EOG to create a system where these polybags are collected and recycled by brands and businesses, rather than burdening consumers.
Treating plastic as a valuable resource. Not waste.
We collect polybags from our online orders in the US and UK, and send these to nearby recycling facilities. In the UK, these polybags are recycled into high-quality pellets that can be sold back to industry. So old polybags can be made into new polybags.
This is leading the way for the outdoor industry, in collaboration with the European Outdoor Group’s Single Use Plastics Project.
