Some manufacturers really work hard on their environmental impact and at ProAdventure we are proud to stock several brands that to be eco-friendly is of paramount importance.
Our new Greener Gear page contains gear from brands that we consider to be Greener, and individual items which we believe are less damaging to the environment or use sustainable products in their manufacture. They may utilise recycled materials or the product may be longer lasting than the norm; for example torches made to last with a five year warranty and a recycled battery, or a tool with a lifetime warranty, or materials to repair things rather than throw them away etc.
We have highlighted the most environmentally conscious brands in our new Greener Brands section, and include all their products in the Greener Gear section. Our Greener Brands include Fjallraven who produce sustainable apparel, Gransfors Bruk axes, Klean Kanteen handmade drinking products, the low impact Nikwax waterproofing products, Paramo clothing and Tentipi tents.
At ProAdventure we tend to ask questions – especially when it comes to gifts – such as is it needed, will it be used, is it long-lasting, is it repairable, can it be recycled at the end of its life, is it worth passing on when you’ve finished with it, will it end up in landfill?
With Christmas just around the corner, it’s good to know our selection of Greener Gifts are usually significantly longer lasting and better made than alternatives, often with much longer guarantees, sometimes for up to 25 years or even for life.
So Go Green with ProAdventure today.
