Vaude, the pioneer brand of eco-responsible outdoor clothing, continues to surprise in terms of its commitment to the environment in recent years: in the process of being 100% climate neutral, the company is including more and more recycled materials in its products.

Materials from marine pollution

Vaude uses Econyl® nylon from old fishing nets discarded in the seas and oceans: a method that does good for the planet with an estimated 640,000 tons of fishing materials abandoned in the water, according to a report released by Greenpeace in 2019.

WWF considers this waste to be one of the major environmental problems of the 21st century. It is very positive to see an outdoor company, such as VAUDE, using it to create very good quality clothing, protecting marine animals from "ghost nets".

Recycling PET bottles

Approximately 80 million tons of waste related to plastic packaging are found each year. 32% of this waste ends up in the environment polluting nature, and we know that plastic bottles and packaging account for a large part of this. That's why Vaude decided to include in its production chain a process that collects, purifies, grinds and treats this waste to form granules that are then transformed into yarn. At the end of the process, a high quality polyester is produced, which in its manufacture requires 50% less energy and produces about 50% less CO2 emissions, all without the use of any fossil fuel.
Vaude has made great strides in recent years and is now one of the most eco-friendly outdoor brands in Europe. The brand, already known for its commitment to the environment through the GreenShape and Grüner Knopf

and Grüner Knopf labels, continues to surprise with its different manufacturing processes. Antje von Dewitz, CEO of Vaude, says that by 2024 she aims to manufacture products mainly from bio-based or recycled materials.
