Eagle Creek Becomes Founding Gear Brand
Eagle Creek has been making quality gear for over 40 years and are committed to protecting the places we live, work, and travel. Keeping gear out of landfills, and making product with as little impact on the planet as possible, is fundamental to their brand values and integral to their design process. That core value is apparent in the steps Eagle Creek has taken to lessen their impact on the planet.
Eagle Creek products were 99% Phthalate (PVC) free in 2018 and will be 100% PVC-free by 2020. They use TPU in place of PVC to add water-resistance, durability and added life to their gear. Longer-lasting products stay in your hands and out of landfills. PVC-free means fewer toxins in the environment.
Eagle Creek uses bluesign® approved fabrics. The bluesign® standard brings the entire textile production chain together to lessen its impact on people and the environment by tracing each textile’s path along the manufacturing process, making improvements at every stage from factory floor to finished product.
Eagle Creek has developed a recycled RPV coating that makes gear water-resistant and even more durable. There are more than 1 Billion cars on this planet, many with laminated windshields that have been piling up in landfills since the 1930’s. Eagle Creek harvests those windshields and repurposes the PVB from the windshields into their gear so products can stay dry and last longer.
And now Eagle Creek has become the founding gear brand with The Renewal Workshop. With this partnership Eagle Creek enters a zero waste system, taking responsibility for the full life cycle of their products--keeping gear out of landfill and into your hands so you can go out and discover the wonders of our world.
We are so proud to welcome Eagle Creek into The Renewal Workshop family.
