Over the last few years, we’ve seen an enormous influx of reputable outdoor brands taking more environmentally friendly and sustainable approaches to their manufacturing. Quite a few of these companies have opted to do so by releasing novel or existing garments and gear designs that are made from repurposed scraps and end-of-the-roll materials. And the latest leading company to announce an upcycled apparel line is Arc’teryx with its all-new ReBird Circularity Initiative.
To kick off this eco-friendly initiative, Arc’teryx has launched an initial trio of items. This includes a small pouch bag and a tote that are both made from recycled bits and leftover materials. However, the most noteworthy item in the new collection is undoubtedly the Stowe Windshell — a high-performance jacket offered in a trio of colors. Part of the BC brand’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by a whopping 65% by 2030, the ReBird program also sees Arc expand its existing Arc’teryx Used Gear lineup which is comprised of second-hand items that are inspected, cleaned, and repaired by the company themselves. Available now, the Arc’teryx ReBird products are priced at $35 for the pouch, $65 for the tote, and $179 for the Stowe Windshell.
