    OUR GARMENTS ARE COMPLETELY FREE OF PERFLUORINATED SUBSTANCES All Polarn O. Pyret’s outerwear with water repellent abilities are completely free of sealers containing perfluorinated compounds, known as PFCs. The outer garments are treated with a PFC-free substance to maintain the same water repellent function. We have been using this material for our outerwear since 2015. PFCs, or perfluorinated substances are commonly used in waterproofing that allows textile surfaces, dirt and water repellent. We have now decided to phase out these substances entirely when they have a negative impact on the environment and the working conditions. Today, we use a material not only meets our chemical requirements but also our quality and functional requirements. Polarn O. Pyret is constantly working to update its chemicals restrictions!

    Keep an eye out for the symbol that shows the way to an environmentally conscious choice – ECO! Polarn O. Pyret places high demands on all our products, but the environment is in particular focus for products with the ECO symbol – we reduce environmental impact by selecting materials consisting of organic cotton or recycled synthetic fibers. Organic cotton means that the fiber is cultivated without the use of chemicals such as synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. This is good for the environment and for the people working with the plants! Recycled synthetic fibers (polyester and polyamide) allow us to reduce usage of new fibers that derive from non-renewable sources (petroleum) and to save the energy required for extraction. Some of our ECO-labelled products are also …
