How can a product designed for mountain sports have a positive impact on the oceans?

Everything on the planet is connected and for thermal insulation expert Thermore, clean oceans have been a priority for quite some time. The use of microfibres, for example, has been banned from all Thermore products for a number of years, since they are known to pollute lakes and oceans as well as contaminating food.

Ocean bound plastics constitute a big risk to the environment, making up up as much as 80% of all of the plastic pollution in oceans. This year, Thermore is releasing the first thermal insulation made from 100% recycled ocean bound raw materials (PET bottles).

The new product is called Ecodown Fibers Ocean and is extremely soft and highly resistant to clumping, like all Ecodown insulation. It is Ocean Cycle-certified and made at Thermore’s state-of-the-art production site in Hong Kong.

Thermore is also increasing the content of recycled fibres in its best selling product, Thermore Classic, the ultra-versatile thermal insulation, to 75%.
