Moncler’s ‘Born To Protect’ Collection Features Its Greenest Puffers To Date

Jan 12, 2021

Category: Gear

Back in 2019, Moncler launched ‘Born To Protect,’ a five-part plan focused on fighting climate change, integrating a circular economy, promoting responsible supply, increasing diversity, and giving back to the community. Having cut its carbon dioxide production by some 21% over the course of the year, they’ve redoubled their efforts in order to lower emissions even further.

With the push comes a collection of puffers the brand is also calling ‘Born To Protect’ in reference to the eco-conscious initiative. Available in three styles, it includes the convertible Dabos, the hip-length Gaite, as well as the full-length Nicaise. Apart from its insulation, each jacket features a completely recycled construction, with sustainable ocean-sourced Econyl plastic for everything from the thread to the zippers and buttons. In practice, this means that Moncler can reduce its C02 emissions by almost 40%. And when it comes to the down filling, the brand has used goose feathers exclusively sourced as a byproduct of the food industry. They’re available now from $1,650 to $1,900 over on the Moncler website linked below.
