GREEN SHAPE

 

VAUDE backpacks and bike bags are simply more ecological. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for environmentally friendly, functional products made from sustainable materials. We are consistently pursuing a “green” path with integrated concepts and innovative products.

SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

 

Going the eco-friendly and fair route… this is what drives us and at the same time is the matter closest to heart.

We pay attention to environmental compatibility and sustainability throughout the entire life cycle of a product, from design and materials, through production, use and care, to recycling and disposal.

Further information on Green Shape can be found in our Sustainability Report.

 

The following Green Shape features make your footprint even smaller when you choose a VAUDE backpack:

PVC – FREE

Because we care about nature, we do not use any harmful PVCs in the production of our backpacks.

You can find more information on PVC in our Sustainability Report.

RECYCLET MATERIALS

When it’s possible, we use recycled materials in our products. This not only reduces waste, but also helps conserve valuable resources. You can recognize products made with recycled materials by this label:

RENEWABLE / BIOBASED MATERIALS

 

Sustainability is really important to us. In addition to recycled materials, we also use renewable plant and animal-based raw materials to save fossil resources.

Further information on bioplastics can be found in our Sustainability Report.

ECO FINISH

 

We use Eco Finish DWR whenever feasible. We apply this water-repellent finish to the outer surface of the pack, so that water pearls up and runs right off – without the use of any environmentally harmful fluorocarbons (PFCs). This protects you from the rain and keeps the planet clean.
