Recycled Materials

As The North Face increases the amount of recycled plastic in our polyester fabric, we provide a market solution for a growing problem - used water and soda bottles. We are also helping to reduce dependence on fossil fuels by reusing those materials already in existence. In addition, recycled polyester has a lower impact on air and water resources than virgin polyester.

Fleece Innovations

We’re committed to improving the environmental performance of our products through materials and manufacturing innovations. As we work to increase our usage of recycled fabric, especially recycled polyester, we provide a market solution for a growing problem - used water and soda bottles. Reusing materials already in existence helps us reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. In addition, recycled polyester has a lower impact on air and water resources than virgin polyester.

We try to concentrate our efforts on high volume products and materials. You can find recycled polyester in some of our core products like the Glacier ¼ Zips and our iconic Denali Jacket.
