Recycled softshells for the protection of people and the planet
VAUDE has set itself the goal of achieving global climate neutrality along its entire supply chain. In order to meet this goal, the materials chosen will naturally play a decisive role. By using recycled materials such as used PET bottles, CO2 emissions in textile production can be roughly halved. Starting with the Winter Season 2021, the outdoor outfitter will manufacture all of its windproof softshells primarily from recycled materials. But that's not enough for the brand – from next winter, half of all VAUDE products will be made from at least 50 % recycled or biobased, renewable raw resources.
