These days, many outdoor gear brands are quick to boast their commitment to sustainability and waste reduction. Sustainable this, eco-friendly that. And for good reason—it’s 2020—if a company isn’t making strides to reduce their impact, what the hell are they doing?
Though the average outdoor company does many things to reduce their carbon footprint, not many can claim 100% carbon neutral. Australia’s Zorali can—and they’ve got some extra cozy gear to boast along with that title.
Recently launched in 2019 and run by a husband and wife team, lighthearted Zorali makes outdoor lifestyle apparel (and a few random equipment bits and bobs, too) with a keen aesthetic. Recycled and organic fibers—like hemp—increases the appeal.
To ensure their carbon-neutral claim, the brand works with Climate Neutral to measure, offset, and reduce their emissions as a company throughout their supply chain. To further the cause, Zorali plants ten trees for every product purchased, and have impressively clocked in more than 85,000 trees to date.
As a company that tends toward the lifestyle side of outdoor apparel rather than pioneering in technical outerwear, they’ve really accomplished a sweet fleece line and some casual everyday athleisure pieces. The fleece kit is a favorite among the team at FM HQ, with a mid-weight fleece top and pants making a great duo for cold weather camping, or just to hang out really anywhere during winter months. Fireplace optional, though recommended.
