Family: "Green Rebels" Functional & Environmentally Friendly Kids’ Apparel
Under the motto "Green Rebels", VAUDE is launching a small green revolution in Kids’ Apparel for the Summer Season 2020. All models have the Green Shape label which includes a high proportion of recycled materials and, for the first time, a biodegradable fleece made from wood cellulose and GOTS-certified cotton. After all, protecting the planet doesn't just start on Fridays with "Friday4future" protests; if you start early enough, it’ll become a part of their worldview.
Nature has been the best teacher for thousands of years – it’s an inexhaustible source of inspiration. That's why children should experience and discover their own realm – with all their senses and as thoroughly as possible – whatever the weather, of course. After all, people protect what they love!

Skomer hiking gear for women: sustainable, fashionable and functional
For many women, hiking isn’t simply something to enjoy; it’s not about "higher, faster, further" but about rest and relaxation. Finding the right gear and apparel is about more than pure functionality. Sustainability and modern styles are also important when it comes to holistic hiking. For women who care about style as much as they care about the planet, the following applies: always leave behind a good impression, but don’t leave a trace! That's why VAUDE has developed a hiking series for women that includes production methods with a small ecological footprint.
