No-one’s perfect when it comes to being eco, so we’re aiming for progress rather than perfection. We believe that by trying to be better we can make a difference, no matter how small – it all counts.
Untrakt produces high performance ski wear made from recycled fabrics, single-use plastic bottles, and excess waste from polyester manufacturing.
Our clothing uses recycled face-fabrics, linings, insulation, membranes, and trims. This is all recyclable too – but not easily. We’ve ensured our packaging – from the factory to our warehouse, to the customer is plastic-free. Only cardboard boxes and our rice straw bags are used, and we’ve even ensured third-party distributors are using recycled packaging. A customer survey showed that over 78% of our customers chose our ski wear because our eco-conscious outlook was important to them. We hope this is the start of an industry-wide shift in customers’ expectations.
We believe that by taking steps to be better, we can make a difference, and no matter how small – it all counts. Short-term, we really want to get to a place where our entire range is 100% recycled – zips, toggles, elastics included. Longer-term, we want to enable our customers to easily recycle their ski wear at the end of its usable life – having re-used it as much as possible!
