Allied Feather + Down explained it will repurpose Nemo’s endless promise down sleeping bags once they reach the end of their lifecycle to ensure full recycling. The insulation will be directed into Allied’s Renu:Trace programme, an initiative dedicated to recycling down materials.

The company emphasised that unless recycled down is both sourced and recycled in a closed loop, it is virtually impossible to ensure that any recycled down comes from 100% ethical sources.

Allied Feather + Down explained that before its Renu:Trace programme, brands had to make a decision to either focus on post-consumer recycled material or ethically treated animals.

Allied Feather + Down president Daniel Uretsky believes recyclable and naturally biodegradable down is one of the most sustainable insulations on the planet and plays an important role in a circular economy.

He said: “We launched our Renu:Trace programme in November 2022 understanding the importance of ensuring animal welfare through traceable recycled down. We are excited to see the realisation of Renu:Trace’s potential within the Nemo Endless Promise programme.”

Nemo has announced that its top-selling down sleeping bags will be part of the fully recyclable Endless Promise Collection from this spring. The collection includes Disco and Riff Spoon shape sleeping bags, as well as the newly introduced mummy-style Coda, all equipped with technical features such as next-generation Thermo Gill vents for fine-tuned temperature control; waterproof hood and footbox fabrics as well as PFAS-free, RDS-certified Allied down fill.

In addition to being made from recycled fabrics, Allied Feather + Down highlighted that each bag is 100% recyclable to stay out of landfill at the end of its life.

Allied Feather + Down added that while Nemo is the first to participate in its Renu:Trace programme it is available to all of its partner brands.

In November 2022 Allied Feather + Down joined forces with climate action organisation Protect Our Winters (POW) to help build further transparency through its TrackMyDown tool.
