Today, Canada Goose is introducing “Kind Fleece,” a material made from recycled wool and bio-based fibers. 

Kind Fleece is a breathable fabric made with 62 percent recycled wool, 18 percent wood-based Tencel Lyocell, a biodegradable fiber made from wood, and 13 percent bio-based Sorona Polymer, a plant-based polymer made from corn sugar.

Customers can find the sustainable fabric in its women’s  Chilliwack Fleece Bomber , women’s  Severn Half-Zip Sweater , men’s  Lawson Fleece Jacket  and men’s  Mersey Fleece Vest .  Each garment is available in three colorways, designed to be layered and worn year-round.

The collection coincides with Canada Goose’s 2021 Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report and its certification under the Responsible Down Standard (RDS), received in November 2021. It also highlights that the company no longer purchased fur last year and will cease manufacturing with fur by the end of this year. It also shows that the company transitioned over 20 percent of its materials to Preferred Fibers and Materials (PFMs), putting it on track to meet its 2025 goal of 90 percent PFMs. 

Canada Goose’s bluesign certification is nearly complete, and it has transitioned almost 60 percent of its packaging to more sustainable solutions. Canada Goose is also committed to discontinuing the use of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in its Arctic-Tech fabric, redeveloping this proprietary fabric by 2023.

In manufacturing, the brand is committed to achieving net-zero scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2025 or sooner, and it has achieved carbon neutrality in its operations.

Canada Goose’s 2021 report and “Kind Fleece” release build on its Humanature platform, uniting sustainability and value-based initiatives.
