Moncler Develops Bio-Based, Carbon-Neutral & Fully-Recyclable TREPORT Jacket
A sustainable winter-ready flex.
The new winter staple is made using plant-based fabrics and accessories, reworking the jacket’s main fabric, lining, buttons and zips, the latter two of which are produced from castor beans. Despite its sustainable outlook, the TREPORT jacket manages to maintain Moncler’s superior level of technicality and performance standards, protecting you against the elements while keeping you warm.
Castor beans are a raw material and are sustainable in themselves, as they do not impact food supply chains and is not meant for agriculture. The beans provide a source that allows for a 30% reduction of CO2 emissions compared to a fossil origin source, making for a jacket that’s produced sustainably from start-to-finish.
Keeping in touch with the sustainable theme, Moncler has sourced natural origin materials for the jacket’s down filling and woolen cuffs, making sure every single material is recyclable. Furthermore, as the jacket is carbon-neutral, any CO₂ emissions generated during its entire life cycle will be offset through REDD+ certified projects to protect forests in the Amazon.
The jacket itself notes its eco-friendly nature with a woolen “BIO” chest appliqué and hang tags that are made from Shiro Alga Carta — the result of combining FSC fibers and algae. Take a look at the Moncler TREPORT bio-based and carbon-neutral jacket in the gallery above, and pick up one for yourself via Moncler’s online store or in Moncler boutiques worldwide for $1,880 USD.
