On the new Moncler bio-based and carbon neutral down jacket's sustainability
What are the materials composing the jacket?
The outer shell, lining, buttons, and zippers are all derived from castor beans: a sustainable bio-plastic as an alternative. Castor beans are a raw material that further allow for a 30% reduction of CO2 emissions compared to a fossil origin source.
Does it mean the jacket is vegan?
Is Moncler's jacket a sustainable alternative?
The brands states that "Moncler is aware that sustainability is not a final destination, but an ongoing improvement process driven by the constant search for new solutions to shape the future". For those of you who are fan of the brand, it is great to support steps forward preferring this instead of other collections.
TREPORT Jacket promotes material innovation and further improvements from the brand. However, for those looking for vegan options, there are many other innovations to look into, such as PANGAIA's FLWRDWN.
Moncler's new sustainable trials with this TREPORT Jacket and the Grenoble Recycled do not currently meet the transparency requirements (the brand, for example, does not clearly state the percentage of recycled materials used in the collection) and material innovation taken into consideration from Renoon.
We postpone our evaluation on Moncler's new collections until further information is available.
