As the holidays approach, an increase in mindless consumerism leads to excess and waste. According to the Dutch bank’s International Christmas Survey (2016), 81 million unwanted gifts were unwrapped on Christmas day. We encourage you to contemplate what you buy carefully to avoid throwaway gifts.
At FW, we make gear that is fit for purpose and built to last. In addition to constructing our apparel with less impactful materials, we donate 1% of all sales to NGO’s taking action against the climate crisis. We’re also proud to offer a robust repair program to ensure our garments are kept in use for as long as possible. This holiday season, join the FW Movement and gift FW gear to the outdoor enthusiasts in your life.
