Haglöfs Restored: Second hand gear, first hand adventures
Last year’s pilot program Haglöfs Restored is now officially launched. The aim with the new second hand collection is to extend the life of useful Haglöfs gear and give it a chance to experience a new lifetime of adventures.
Haglöfs is taking action to ensure fair treatment of everyone involved in making their products
At Haglöfs, being a global citizen and taking responsibility for their supply chain is a high priority. The work Haglöfs carried out to reduce the vulnerability of workers amid the challenges of 2020 resulted in them achieving Fair Wear Leader status.
Haglöfs is now climate neutral but had to cheat to get there
Haglöfs joins the growing number of companies referring to themselves as “climate neutral” as they launch their new climate strategy: to reduce their emissions by 50% over the next 10 years and reach net zero by 2030, while taking full responsibility for the remaining emissions along the way.
Haglöfs challenges consumers to buy nothing new this Black Friday
Haglöfs continues to push back against the excessive consumption driven by exaggerated discounting of Black Friday with their Green Friday initiative – this year, using the day to launch a new second hand concept – Haglöfs Restored.
Out now - Haglöfs Sustainability Report
Haglöfs has today released its annual Sustainability Report. In it, the Swedish outdoor gear manufacturer describes its extensive sustainability efforts in 2017 - relating to its products, the production of them, the people who work with them, and our planet.
A toxic love story
Cotton - perhaps the world's most popular, most thirsty and most poisonous raw material. So much so that our planet is unable to produce any more cotton than current levels.
We don't settle for silver
Biocides have long been used to avoid bad odors in training and outdoor clothing because they kill bacteria. That is the old school way. New innovations allow us to use zeolites, a pumice‐like mineral, which also keeps the clothes fresher without killing living organisms. Take a look!
Every year, billions of kilograms of textiles are being added to the world’s growing problem of waste. That’s unnecessary because these textiles can be reused or recycled. Here is a look at what we’re doing to keep clothes in the loop, again and again. Fall in love with your products. It’s possible.
How we get down to business
We know that the best clothing is made by using the right, most appropriate materials. Very often, this actually means that new materials, ones which do the job perfectly, are developed and created. But sometimes, materials that have been evolved over tens of thousands of years - like down- are the ones that suit the garment and its purpose best.
When this is the case, it's important that sust
Haglöfs does Green Friday instead of Black Friday
This Friday November 24th is commonly known as Black Friday, a day where prices are dumped and consumption increases massively. We, who believe in a sustainable outdoor industry, don't do Black Friday. We do GREEN FRIDAY. That's why 100% of the proceedings from the products from our Sustainable Choice selection, sold in our own stores and online this day, will be donated to Protect Our Winters, a
HAGLÖFS: THE ONLY NORDIC OUTDOOR BRAND IN FAIR WEAR FOUNDATION
Haglöfs has been a member of Fair Wear Foundation since 2012 and is today the only Nordic outdoor brand on the member list.
PRODUCTS MADE FROM TRASH
Haglöfs feels that adding recycled materials to outdoor gear is not just paying lip service to sustainability: it's a great way to make highly functional products with reduced environmental loads, and will soon be the norm.
WATERPROOF WITHOUT THE F-WORD
Haglöfs have reinforced their commitment to fluorocarbon-free treatments on their products by vowing to the complete transition to more environmentally friendly substances by year 2020.
A sustainable outdoor industry. It's possible!
There is no such thing as a sustainable outdoor brand. No matter how good our intentions are, we always leave a footprint. It could be from the chemical composition of a material, the working conditions in a factory or the effect production and transport have on the climate.
Let us explain.
Before a product ends up in the store, it goes through many processes that all leave a footprint. For
EVA MULLINS NEW SUSTAINABILITY MANAGER AT HAGLÖFS

Now the company takes another step forward by appointing Eva Mullins as new Sustainability Manager.
Eva Mullins, 37, has worked for Haglöfs since 2008, and comes
LAVA™ – A SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION TO FIGHT BAD ODORS
Everyone sweats, and bodies and clothing inevitably start to smell from the effort of leading an active lifestyle. The reason for this is that bacteria, which live naturally on our skin, metabolize our sweat and it is this process that creates a bad odor. For a long time, anti-bacterial - or, in other words, bacteria-killing - technologies were the only solution used to counteract bad odors and in
