Canada Goose’s New Sustainable Standard Parka
Canada Goose’s new unisex jacket The Standard Expedition Parka is made from recycled polyester and organic cotton, responsibly sourced down, and reclaimed fur. Dying fabrics requires considerable energy and water usage. Furthering their sustainable efforts, the jacket is left undyed giving it a raw white colour. Also, it is the first Canada Goose parka to feature reclaimed fur on its adjustable hood. The brand is committed to ending the purchase of new fur by 2022. The new outerwear piece has a 31% lower carbon footprint and requires 68% less water compared to the in-line Expedition Parka. Canada Goose’s most sustainable piece is setting the standard for all other outerwear in the future.
