In a press release, Thermore reported on its latest product development, Ecodown Fibers Ocean, which follows below.

“How can a product designed for mountain sports positively impact our oceans? Everything on our planet is connected, so here’s how the thermal insulation experts of Thermore are helping to make oceans cleaner. Thermore’s commitment to clean oceans has been a priority for quite some time. For instance, the use of microfibers was banned from all Thermore products as microfibers are known to pollute lakes and oceans and contaminate the food we eat.

“Similarly, ocean-bound plastics also constitute a big environmental risk—they make up as much as 80 percent of plastic pollution in our oceans. This year, Thermore releases the first thermal insulation made from 100 percent ocean-bound raw materials (PET bottles).The new product is called Ecodown Fibers Ocean. It is extremely soft and highly resistant to clumping, just like all Ecodown Fibers. It is Ocean Cycle-certified and made at Thermore’s state-of-the-art production site in Hong Kong.

“Sustainability is part of Thermore’s core values, so Thermore is also increasing the content of recycled fibers to 75 percent on its best-selling product, Thermore Classic, the ultra-versatile thermal insulation that is any designer’s dream.”
