Celebrate Earth Day with Sustainable, Eco-friendly Fashion
Earth Day, April 22, is almost here and people all over the world are looking to make a difference in a meaningful and impactful way. There are a million different options to support this movement for earth’s protection. One of those ways is with our clothing and fashion choices; that includes heated apparel too!
Choose Eco-Friendly Fabrics
Eco-friendly fabrics are safe for the environment, either recycled or biodegradable. Did you know that the padding material in our Men’s and Women’s Heated Padded Vests are made with DuPont Sorona, a revolutionary, high-performance polymer made using annually renewable plant-based ingredients. Our Men’s Padded Jacket is also filled with Smawarm, a certified eco-recycled material made from discarded PET bottles and calcium minerals, fusing together with the latest nanotechnology.
High Quality Over High Quantity
We believe in creating fewer, well-made pieces that will last a long time versus mass-producing cheap products that fall apart after a short time, which adds to the overall waste. ORORO heated gear is designed to last as long as possible, keeping you warm well into the future. Our quality control team is constantly checking customer feedback to continually improve our products to make them last even longer.
One Jacket to Rule Them All
Often fashion is marketed to have a separate outerwear piece for different occasions, which is not only expensive but can be wasteful. We believe in creating pieces that you can wear in all aspects of your daily life, so you don’t need a separate coat for going out or going to work. One jacket for every day, for almost all seasons!
One Person’s Trash is Another Person’s Treasure
Unless there’s visible damage or noticeable odors, never throw away clothes you don’t wear anymore, donate them instead! Thrift stores and local shelters are always needing long-lasting, durable clothes that lower income families can afford. Not only are you doing your part to reduce waste but you’re helping someone else in need. Another way to give is to check around with family and friends or neighbors who have young kids or teens that need clothes for school.
We only have one planet, so let’s make it our mission to clean it up and keep it that way every chance we get. No action is too big or too small, we’re in this together.
