Lafuma is once again committed to environmental protection
Do you know the international business collective 1% For the Planet?
Created in 2002, this non-profit organization aims to show that a business can be successful while being philanthropic. Indeed, as the name indicates, companies commit to donate 1% of their annual turnover to this association.
1% For the Planet acts on 6 themes to develop sustainable solutions for tomorrow.
The 6 themes of the 1% For the Planet collective
Recently, the Lafuma brand became a member of the 1% For the Planet with its equipment range (sleeping bags, backpacks and accessories). Lafuma has been a committed company for more than 30 years. In addition to joining this collective, Lafuma develops its environmental commitment within its company with the sustainable design and manufacture of their products.
From plastic bottles to technical clothing?
It's not magic, Repreve® revalorizes plastic bottles by cutting them into small plastic flakes, which are then melted and transformed into granules to be transformed into textile fibres. In 2020, more than 30 billion bottles will have been transformed thanks to this new manufacturing process.
Greater product transparency and sustainability: the Low Impact label
More than 80% of the Lafuma collection is eco-designed and identified by this label. Low impact guarantees quality products, with certified materials that are not harmful to the environment (e.g. PFC-free) and to the health of employees.
The use of recycled materials, giving a second life as for cotton, down and plastic bottles. Healthier materials for the planet as well as for consumers with organic fabrics (cotton, hemp and linen) and the development of new bio-sourced materials made from plants such as sugar cane.
The brand's ultimate goal is to have 100% of its products with the Low Impact label by 2025!
This label reinforces confidence in Lafuma products by offering eco-friendly products: from an environmental point of view, but also from a socio-responsible and ethical point of view.
Lafuma is also developing eco-responsible initiatives with its community. The brand has renewed its responsible mountain operation several times, with the motto "Leave nothing but good vibes". Thanks to this initiative, more than 30 tons of waste were collected during these awareness days!
