RESPECT. RECYCLE. RETHINK.

Active environmental protection and consistent expansion of sustainable product series The issue of sustainability and the conservation of resources is a top priority at JACK WOLFSKIN. The new season is focusing on products made from fully recycled materials*.

Using revolutionary TEXAPORE ECOSPHERE technology, the Idstein-based garment manufacturer has launched an absolute innovation on the outdoor market – a jacket consisting of a 100 % recycled membrane, with a 100 % recycled outer fabric and a 100 % recycled inner lining. JACK WOLFSKIN is actively contributing to environmental protection: over 1 million PET bottle shave been recycled to create the products sold so far, which equates to a reduction of around 27 tonnes of plastic waste. In the latest collection, this issue is now being rigorously expanded: fully recycled materials* are now available in 2.5 and 3 layers, and for the first time they are also beingused for trousers. A total of 54 styles for women, men and children are made entirely from recycled materials. The company is also celebrating an important milestone in the new season: the entire clothing collection is 100 % free of PFC!

(*Outer material, membrane and lining)

ZERO WASTE CONCEPT

It all started with Texapore and now it’s continuing with Nanuk. Our fleeces are known for their outstanding Nanuk technology, which keeps you warm and feels soft and cosy. But that’s not all – they are now an integral part of the Zero Waste concept: two interlinked forms of recycling create a completely recycled material. 25% of this yarn stems from recycled production waste and 75% from recycled PET bottles. This recycling is made possible thanks to the specially developed closed-loop system, which we employ to convert production waste into recyclable material. This long-term project is being implemented in Europe, which not only makes us sustainable, but supports the domestic textile industry too. This means that our fleeces are just as soft and warm as before, yet completely different. These are our new Zero Waste jackets.
