Staying cozy all winter long can sometimes come at a cost to the planet. Many coats and jackets get their warmth from down insulation, which typically comes from ducks and geese—something that is neither ethical nor sustainable. Others are made from synthetic fibers like
polyester
—a type of plastic that's derived from petroleum and doesn't
biodegrade
down like natural fibers.
The next time you're shopping for a sustainable winter coat, opt for eco-friendlier materials that will keep you cozy without harming the environment. That could look like everything from down alternatives to recycled
water bottles
.
Here, nine sustainable and eco-friendly winter coats and jackets that have a lower impact.
