REDUCING OUR
ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT

With the launch of our Eco Heritage Mountain and Nuptse Jackets, we’re reducing our environmental impact by the equivalent of:

Icon of a house

61,366

kWh of electricity, or enough to power 5 homes for a year.

Icon of a car

79,951

miles driven by an average passenger vehicle, or enough to go around the world three times

Icon of a phone

4,169,653

smartphones charged, or one for every resident of Los Angeles.

*Calculations based on the Eco Mountain and Eco Nuptse Jackets, and data from the EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator

SMALL ACTIONS, BIG IMPACT

TIP 01/

BUY LESS, BUY BETTER

Invest in quality, low impact, and durability, even when you're buying used. REI inspects and resells their best-preserved used gear, and The North Face Renewed refurbished products come with the same quality and performance as new gear.

SHARE

TIP 02/

KNOW YOUR MATERIAL

Prioritize low-impact natural fibers like linen, regenerative wool, and rainfed organic cotton, in addition to recycled fibers like recycled polyester or rPET.

SHARE

TIP 03/

GET OUT

If you get outside more often, you'll feel more connected to nature - and you'll be more motivated to protect it.

SHARE

TIP 04/

RENT, BORROW, SWAP

Borrow clothes from family members, swap with friends, or rent clothing (especially special-occasion attire that you’ll only wear once).

SHARE

TIP 05/

SHOP YOUR CLOSET

We often forget what we own, and can end up buying new things that are similar to what we already have.

SHARE

TIP 06/

BUY FOR YOUR FUTURE SELF

If you don’t think you’ll wear it in five years, don’t buy it.
