Sustainability on Trekkinn

Sustainability is a matter close to the heart for an outdoor shop like Trekkinn. Spending time in nature teaches us the importance of taking care of the world around us. Therefore, Trekkinn takes responsibility for their part by creating more awareness towards sustainability on the website. In this way, we hope to help other outdoor enthusiasts make a more sustainable choice when shopping for new gear.

What does sustainability mean?

Sustainability is a wide concept. For Trekkinn, it means doing business in an ethical, responsible and environmentally friendly way. We do this by selling products that have been made of renewable materials, through a green manufacturing process or that carry any of the other sustainability certifications.

What is a sustainability certification?

Products certify as sustainable when the resourcing, materials, manufacturing or sales meet certain acceptable standards. Organizations like Better Cotton Initiative, Bluesign or Fair Wear set up their own standards and issue their label to brands answering to them. Other certifications you might find are organic cotton, ecological manufacturing and PFCs free. These have been assigned by Trekkinn itself.
Below, you can find all sustainability certifications with a short description, explaining what each of them mean.

Why would I buy sustainable products?

Buying sustainable products has many benefits for both you as a buyer and the world around you. By choosing the greener option, you contribute to the improvement of working conditions, animal welfare and human health while reducing the environmental impact. Save the planet while you save money, as most sustainable products are also more durable and last longer.

How can I find sustainable products on Trekkinn?

You can find sustainable products by using the sustainability filter on the left side of your webpage or at the top of your mobile browser or TradeInn app. The products can be filtered by the assigned sustainability certification. The sustainability feature is also mentioned in the list of product characteristics.

Can I find sustainable products on the other Tradeinn shops?

Yes! Besides Trekkinn, you can also find sustainable products on Dressinn using the sustainability filter. We are working on expanding sustainability throughout all of our websites by assessing each product thoroughly.
