Environmental and ethical outdoor gear report

Ethical Consumer has published a special Outdoor Gear report which details the environmental and ethical policies of more than 60 leading outdoor companies. The 62 page report covers fleeces, waterproof coats, walking boots, rucksacks, tents and sleeping bags, and concludes that almost all the companies covered have inadequate environmental and ethical reporting policies.

On the up side, the report includes “Best Buys” for each of the six products, as well as all the stories behind the ratings of the companies.

If you want to read the full report you can download it from the Ethical Consumer website for £3.
