OUR PRODUCTS & MATERIALS
Product design and production should find a balance between sustainable materials and durable, long-lasting construction. It’s not enough simply to choose materials that are recycled/recyclable or responsibly sourced. Products should be designed and built to function as long as possible and be repaired when necessary. Moreover, if/when a product reaches end of life, its components should be able to be reused or recycled.
|EXPED’s entire sleeping mat line is certified as climate/CO2 neutral. Moreover, EXPED chooses high-quality materials for maximum lifespan, and the width of the raw material is adapted to the width of the product to minimize waste.||100% of the down EXPED uses is certified to help ensure the birds that supply it are not force-fed or live-plucked. Since the early 1980s, EXPED has reclaimed down from its end-of-life products and sent it back to its German down supplier to keep its life cycle going.||
