­The North Face is reinventing one of their largest product lines, ThermoBall™, with recycled materials, an important step in how they create sustainable change at scale. Reiterate, renew, evolve. The North Face are always searching for bright and inventive new ways to make their iconic products with more sustainable materials while maintaining the quality and performance their customers expect. The new ThermoBall™ Eco is the same award-winning lightweight down alternative jacket we have all grown to love, at the same price. It has the same product performance, but for one important difference: It's made from recycled polyester fabric and recycled insulation. Just the recycled insulation alone, sourced from their partners at Primaloft, is spun from at least five plastic bottles that are diverted from the landfill.

The North Face are aware that material production and manufacturing accounts for 60 – 85 percent of their total environmental impact. Not shipping to their customers (which they Offset), or consumer use, but the production of materials and manufacturing products. This motivated them to change the materials used in their largest collections to Recycled Materials. In this case, The North Face are taking plastic bottles and recycling them into fibers and fabrics. Converting ThermoBall™ to recycled materials is an important step toward creating sustainable change at scale.

Sustainability has never looked so good - the ThermoBall™ Eco comes in six different colors in both adult hoodie and full-zip format to match any of our customers next eco-friendly adventure.
