This trendy jacket from Passenger brings the best of both worlds - it's light enough to pack into its own front pocket but still keeps you warm. For days spent in nature from the coastline to the woodland pine, the Floe jacket will have your back. With a half zip for easy on and off, and a peaked hood to keep light showers at bay, this is a year-round staple that you'll always be glad you packed.
We know our customers like to know exactly what they're buying; we're not going to sugar coat it, but we are going to explain it. We've divided up all of the sustainable features we've identified across our product ranges and grouped them into three so you know how your purchase is making an impact: Think Nature, Think Welfare, Think People.
The Passenger Men's Floe Insulated Half Zip Jacket - Ensign Blue has the following sustainability attributes...
Fluorinated DWR finishes make clothing waterproof by repelling water droplets. ‘PFCs’ is the broad term for all fluorocarbon chemicals, of which PFOS and PFOA are sub-groups. Different chemicals in this family have a varying number of carbon atoms, so C6 has six carbon atoms and C8 has eight. While the outdoor industry has moved away from C8 (or 'long chain') PFCs, C6 (short chain) PFCs are currently unbeatable in their waterproofing performance. They're considered less harmful to the environment than C8, but they have not been proven to be safe. PFCs are known as forever chemicals; once created they will never break down and are harmful to people and the planet. To read more about the chemistry related to PFCs, head here.
PFC-Free DWR uses alternative, biodegradable technologies that repels water from the surface of a fabric - such as Fjallraven's Greenland Wax. PFC-Free DWR coatings are water resistant enough for most daily activities, so if you don’t need a highly technical waterproof, consider a PFC-Free garment instead.
By recycling fabrics, we are not only stopping extra waste heading to landfill but also reducing the need for virgin fabrics to be created. Recycled fabrics can be anything from recycled polyester to recycled cotton and where recycled cotton is used, it's often offcuts from factory floors that would otherwise end up in landfill.
If a recycled fabric is third party certified, such as by REPREVE, the fabric is high quality and you can be safe in the knowledge you’re buying into a sustainable system. REPREVE specifically turns plastic bottles into performance fabrics that still have wicking, water repellency and adaptive warming and cooling properties. Find out more about REPREVE.
Your purchase of this product plants trees. A single 10 year old tree can absorb as much as 22kg of carbon each year which we all know is key for tackling climate change, but they also produce oxygen, lower temperatures by creating shade, improve soil quality and provide a habitat for wildlife.
For a product to be vegan friendly, it must not contain any animal products, not be tested on animals nor contain any animal-derived GMOs.
Not all of our vegan-friendly products will be Vegan Certified. Find out more about Vegan Certification here: https://vegan.org/certification/.
This brand ensures that the factories they use have been third party audited but are not specifically partnered with a Non-Profit Organisation. This will be either BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) or SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit), which are social auditing methologies and reports but are not an accreditation. This means the brand has sourced factories who have passed an audit, so their worker rights, environmental impact and social compliance is up to scratch.
