Since it's just about ski season, you may be looking gloves to keep your digits cozy. Consider Swany's Eco-Gaunt glove, made from recycled materials. The white-and-gray hand coverers are durable, warm, and made for skiing and snowboarding. The shell and lining are recyclable, and the insulation combines Eco-Dry lining with Primaloft and a waterproof insert. The gloves are $60 and part of the Eco-Circle collection.
The best part: After wearing them for a few seasons, you can return the gloves to Swany in a supplied eco-friendly envelope. The company will recycle all the materials and turn them into a new pair. This energy-efficient process reduces carbon emissions by 77% and requires 84% less energy than producing the gloves from virgin materials.
