In this third part of introducing our OutDoor Show exhibitors to you, Bleed, Exped, Engel Sport and Paramo explain in a few words what their mission is all about.
Bleed Organic Clothing features a cotton shell jacket made of 100% organic cotton. Its modern weaving technology makes is water repellant and breathable without the use of PFC’s or the need of a synthetic membrane.
„It is a part of our company’s philosophy to consider aspects of ecological production and waste management as well as human ecological standpoints. We also place a value on short routes of transport as well as on social aspects.
As a founding member of the ‘Arbeitskreis Naturtextil e.V.’ and the International Association Natural Textile Industry e.V. as well as a main initiator of an international ecological textile standard, we will continue to be committed to superior ecological quality – for your skin and for the love of our environment.”
Páramo will welcome the Spring/ Summer 2018 season with innovative developments. The ethical outdoor manufacturer is introducing their first ultra light windproof, extending further the versatility of the Ostro and Alize Fleece/ Windproof combos, ideal protection for an unpredictable climate – and, like all Páramo weatherproofs, Detox-friendly and PFC-free.
Páramo is partnered with chemical recycler JEPlan, moving towards closing the production loop across all products. To date over 2,000kg of garments have been delivered for chemical recycling – diverted from landfill by the Páramo Recycling Scheme and ready to be regenerated into high-grade polyester.
Over 80% of Páramo production is by the charitable Miquelina Foundation, a social enterprise that empowers vulnerable women in Bogotá, Colombia, now a full member of the World Fair Trade Organisation. All this production is guaranteed Fair Trade.
