In our day-to-day life we remember to recycle our water bottles and newspapers. But how often do you think about the items you wear and carry and the effects they have on our planet? Luckily, we live in a time where eco-friendly options are abundantly available! We rounded up a few of our favorite Earth-friendly winter products that’ll get you through the cold season with as little guilt as possible!

If you’re looking for a company that genuinely has respect for the environment, then Liberty Skis is the place for you. Rather than following along with the current trend, these skis are designed and crafted to give you the most amazing experience while you are on them. All of the skis available here are made with bamboo in order to limit the lasting effect other types of wood have on the environment. Also, all of the materials used are hand selected from all over the world in order to craft the most environmentally friendly and functional skis possible.

The fact that Nau is a sustainable company isn’t a marketing gimmick or a trend, but rather the principle that the company was founded on. Every single design is done in a way to minimize environmental impact and every fabric and material used is sourced from like-minded partners who share the same mission. From jackets to scarves and everything in between, these items are made with responsibility to community and the environment in mind.

The company Baabaazuzu, started by Sue Burns, went from a laundry accident (we’ve all been there!) to a successful company that is now available in over 900 retail stores across America. All of the products you see from this company are completely crafted from vintage materials that are then repurposed into new items. Besides being good for the environment, each product is unique so you won’t see anybody else with the same pair of mittens you have on!

The use of bamboo is once again seen here at Arbor Collective, but this time in the construction of snowboards as well as clothing. Besides the sustainable way that these products are made, Arbor Collective also has a bigger end goal. Proceeds from every sale go to their Returning Roots initiative which aims to protect and restore forests. The donations primarily go to the Koa forest in Hawaii in order to pay homage to the culture that invented surfing over 1,000 years ago on boards sourced from Koa wood!
