Sustainable apparel collective PANGAIA recently released a limited-edition puffer jacket filled with a vegan down made from organic, dried wildflowers—a cruelty-free alternative to traditional goose feathers. PANGAIA’s scientific partners developed the down material for more than 10 years. The puffer jacket shell, which is available in red or black, is made from post-consumer recycled materials and plastic bottles. The jacket is part of a PANGAIA’s first apparel collection which includes t-shirts, hoodies, and track pants also made from bio-based and post-consumer recycled materials and plastic bottles. PANGAIA aims to create a global open-source platform for eco-innovations and connect like-minded individuals and organizations who care about the environment. PANGAIA will donate a portion of its proceeds from its first collection to nonprofit 5 Gyres, which empowers action against plastic pollution globally. PANGAIA plans to release accessories and other product categories in early 2019.
