A shocking 87 percent of clothing produced ends up at landfill. With wastage so widespread, much of the industry is recognizing the responsibility it has to reduce impact. One brand already taking steps to make such change is Canadian staples purveyor Frank And Oak. Its latest outerwear pieces are examples of the brand implementing a more sustainable approach at all stages of design, including the sourcing and choice of materials.
Frank And Oak's Expedition puffer is a flagship piece in the brand's ramped-up eco agenda. Going fully animal-free, the puffer chooses polyester fibers over goose and duck feathers. The puffer is also produced in line with the brand's recycling system, through which old garments are shredded down into miniature chips and spun into yarn for fabric in new clothes. Another of the label's current outerwear highlights, the alpine parka, is crafted in a material using discarded plastic bottles.
Coming in fall's hottest color — safety orange — Frank And Oak's water-repellent puffer vest continues the cruelty-free production. The built-in Thinsulate technology is made from 75 percent recycled material, keeping your torso and your conscience warm.
